As you may have heard already, BbWorld 2012 will have five key themes this year – each Feature Theme Session will be presented by thought leaders in Education.
We rolled out the theme “Social Learning” last week and now we are proud to announce the Feature Theme Session Keynote Speaker for Digital Content – Tom Caswell! An Open Education Policy Associate at Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges, Tom handles special projects that directly impact the power of Digital Content such as running the Open Course Library, piloting a community college Open Learning Initiative (OLI) in Washington State, and supporting the OPEN initiative for Department of Labor C3T grantees. As a Policy Associate, Tom also raises awareness about the use of Digital Content and sets policies for sharing content.
Digital Content has been getting a lot of attention lately as the Internet provides a wonderful distribution channel and allows anyone to share digital content at little or no cost. Blackboard has also recently partnerships with commercial Publishers such as Wiley to integrate content into the online platform.
Tom will be sharing more about his initiatives to break down the boundaries of sharing content at BbWorld in his Feature Theme Session on Digital Content: This Changes Everything.
