Yes, I have something conference-related to post. The pre-conference session I went to yesterday morning was not great, it was Bb-facilitated and aimed at academic staff with little or no experience of instructional design. Nothing really wrong with what was said but then again nothing worth writing down either.
The afternoon, on the other hand, was a whole different story, loads worth writing down but sworn to a whole host of confidentiality stuff until later in the conference. The afternoon session was the Bb Ideas Exchange Steering Committee meeting, it was great to catch up with the people I met back in December. We were then treated to various sneak previews; the "coming soon" keynote announcements, the future scenarios for Bb (the session you emailed me about Brian), the app packs availability schedule, developments of social learning spaces, further scholar stuff and then....the moment we'd all been waiting for - Project NG roadmap and a detailed look at the NG prototypes. Can't do that sort of stuff justice on a blog esp with the NDA, but will do an e-learning development team briefing on it when I get back - one thing I will say is that, unlike recent experiences, I did like what I saw.
