Hi Don, It was great to see and feel such a buzz from the conference and exhibition this year. Whist I know you say that this is down to those that attend, you are the glue that brings everything together. No other event compares!
Congrats on an excellently executed and fun event.

BTW how does one access past conference sessions?

Good morning Donald, just a short note of thanks and well done in organising a superb 2 days. Plenty of food for thought even for a small company such as ours! Apologies for not personally introducing myself during the conference. Onwards and upwards. Ronnie

Hi Donald -
I hope to meet you at the conference. I'm trying to encourage people to come along to the talk by Jonny Parkes from the Irish Learning Alliance (ILA) who will be giving a seminar on the ILA ELITE technology project. It is a really exciting industry led project that has had several million € of support from the Irish Government. One of the outputs from the project has been the development of open source tools that enable people to collaborate in ways that also help organisations to guage the value of informal learning.

Jonny Parkes - THe ILA ELITE Platform - integrating social networking in an e-learning world. Exhbition Seminar - Wednesday 28th January 2009, 13:15 - 13:45 - Seminar Theatre 4

Thanks Dom.

Looking forward to hearing about the rapporteur details.

I love Ning!

Hi Katherine, I had a chat with Jane Hart about this, and she thought that it was probably your corporate fire wall restricting some parts of the site because of difficulties with the CSS files. If you could access it at home, it looks like she was right. Mind you, some people couldn't get into the site at all. Apparently it was blocked because it was a dating/relationships site! Perhaps we're missing a possible lucrative sideline....

Full view and normal service available from home and able to join groups so my contributions will be outside working hours. Great stuff and great site now I can see everything properly.
