eLearning is the method of teaching and education to keep your eye on. New technologies are coming to the forefront that will transform the way we see learning forever. In only the last decade, the computer and virtual realities have become more and more ubiquitous in colleges and other learning academies. Things are changing yearly, and in another decade, what we see as a “school” will look completely altered.
This is why it is so important to keep up with the new teaching strategies being implemented and programs being initiated in classrooms throughout the country. eLearning conferences are a wonderful opportunity to meet up with fellow learners and educators and discover what is on the horizon for this exciting and growing wing of the education industry.
