This year the Curriculum, Technology, and Education Reform
(CTER) Online Master of Education Program from the University
of Illinois will feature a hybrid conference live from the University
of Illinois in Champaign and through the IOC community.

Presenters and participants online will be given access to both the
IOC and CTER conferences. This conference - which is attended by
participants from all across the globe - is held entirely on the
Internet using: live virtual classrooms, recorded
presentations, email, web poster sessions, synchronous
chats, discussion areas, and other Internet technologies.

IOC was created to focus on issues and concerns of K-20 classroom
faculty and related technology support, learning resources, student
services, and workforce development professionals.

IOC 2007 takes place in a LearningTimes Online Conference
Community - an online environment in which groups of participants,
both small and large, gather electronically to learn, collaborate and
network. Not sure how an online conference works? Want to
experience the conference community before registering?
