DevLearn 2009 begins this coming week in San Jose, CA, and I thought I’d write a quick post containing tips and suggestions for both attendees and people who wish to participate remotely.
To track all things related to DevLearn, you’ll want to:
- Watch Twitter for all messages tagged with #dl09, devlearn, etc.
- Check WordPress for blogs mentioning dl09.
- Keep an eye on Flickr for all photos tagged with dl09.
- …and most importantly, keep checking back here! I plan on blogging as much of the conference as possible.
Here are a few other helpful links:
- How to Get the Most Out of a Conference
- Posts from DevLearn 2008
- Brent Schlenker’s blog, Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development (lots of good DevLearn info here)
As I mentioned in a previous post, I will be presenting two sessions at DevLearn (one on micro-blogging and one on WordPress). Please drop in if these topics interest you. I’m always happy to continue discussions after the presentation as well, so don’t be shy!

YouTube EDU launched this past week containing online lectures from more than 100 colleges and universities. The site lets you browse hundreds of videos by school or you can search by subject. The variety of content is amazing – everything from Advanced Finite Elements Analysis to How to Make Spring Cupcakes.
An internal site like this could be fantastic for capturing tribal knowledge in a corporate environment. Does YouTube have a version that companies can license? Are there similar video-sharing sites/applications that can be deployed in-house? Please chime in if you have experience with this, and I’ll do some research on my own.
(FYI – Many of the educational videos link over to the regular YouTube.com site, so it may be confusing for some users when the EDU branding and interface disappears when clicking back and forth between the sites.)
