Chief learning officers, senior directors, directors of human resources (HR), and directors of training from across Texas will meet once again in Austin for the annual eLearning Symposium, presented jointly by MicroAssist and Sparksight. The conference, to be held April 23, 2008 at the Doubletree Hotel in Austin, will seek to create a link between professionals in the fields of education, technology and communication and help organizations leverage the efficiencies and the boundless reach of the Internet in order to deliver education.

"We anticipate participation from some of Texas' well-known and most innovative education, human resources or distance learning professionals," says Sanjay Nasta, CEO of MicroAssist. "The success of 2008 eLearning Symposium is its ability to bring together the most promising companies and technologies in the region. Not only will attendees have the opportunity to network with key experts in the design, budgeting, technology selection and course development fields, but will leave with proven and successful implementation formulas for eLearning."

"There are millions of hours of knowledge that lie unused within state, local and educational institutions," says Christopher Justice, CEO of Sparksight. "The 2008 eLearning Symposium will bring a collaborative environment where educators, trainers and businesses can develop strategies to harness the value and opportunities of eLearning."

Justice suggests that eLearning hasn't fully matured until now. He continued, "Today eLearning software can be acquired at no cost. Moodle, a free, open source course management system for online learning, is a well-established example. The challenge is assembling the curriculums in the correct manner to serve the needs of a distributed audience. The eLearning Symposium will give attendees the knowledge to be more successful."
