Big Techs had big fun at the 15th Annual TxDLA Conference, April 15-18 at The Sheraton Hotel in Dallas.
Over 500 conference attendees enjoyed more than 130 breakout sessions, plus keynote presentations from Corinne Hoisington, Jack Hollingsworth and Alan November. Hoisington, a full-time Professor of Information Systems Technology at Central Virginia Community College in Lynchburg, Virginia, opened the conference by discussing how high tech tools like animation, movies and web 2.0 can rejuvenate a distance learning course. November, an international leader in distance education, spoke about using improving the quality of education through technology. Hollingsworth, a 30-year career photographer, closed the conference by discussing how mobile cameras can be used as the ultimate communication and creation tool for educating, inspiring and motivating students.
The exhibitor midway highlighted booths from Polycom, Cisco, LifeSize and many more. Attendees had the opportunity to network with other distance learning professionals throughout the conference, and they had a little fun too. The welcome reception was hosted by the exhibitors in the Midway and prizes were given for best dressed and best carnival game. The Denim and Diamonds Ball featured a DJ, photo booth and mechanical bull, with a prize given to the rider who held on the longest. Attendees were also entered into a drawing for some fabulous prizes including software from Adobe, a crystal encrusted office pack and even a pair of diamond necklaces.
