More than twelve-hundred people will participate in tonight's opening session of TechLearn 2002 in Disney World's Coronado Resort.
TechLearn's theme this year is The Futures of eLearning, an improvement over last year's Now More Than Ever.
The Limited's Beth Thomas modeled one of the futures of eLearning, making like a Disney interpretation of Judy Jetson:
eLearning vendors are in such a slump that they didn't stuff many goodies in this year's famous TechLearn wheelie bag. A couple of pens, an Element K potholder, a Thinq t-shirt, a DDI pencil case, a 4" rubber bear, and a stack of cheesy brochures and product spec sheets On the other hand, the variety of buttons has grown. A few from last year seem odd when taken out of context ("Bullied as a kidl")
I'm going to head back over to the Coronado. The Learning Showcase opens soon. I want to catch the reaction to this first in-your-face commercialism at TechLearn, especially as the kick-off event.
