DLA Conference – St. Simons Island, GA

It’s almost June 21st and that can only mean one thing…time for the Distance Learning Administrator’s Conference in St. Simons Island, GA.  Sponsored by The University of West Georgia and The Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, the DLA conference boasts a relaxing environment with informative speakers, engaging events, and beautiful scenery.  Every year Dr. Mac Adkins looks forward to joining a significant networking group of colleagues to catch up on the past year activities.  Discussing new trends in distance learning and discovering new ways to reach students through technology is always a highlight of this trip.

This year is especially exciting since eLearningToolBox will be presenting the first annual 2009 Online Student Readiness Report!  The purpose of the 2009 Online Student Readiness Report is to provide summary data from thousands of online students regarding their reported levels of readiness for studying online.  This data can inform distance education leaders as they design and provide instruction online and support students who are studying at a distance.  The information in this report is aggregate data taken from the student’s scores on READI – Readiness for Education At a Distance Indicator.  Dr. Adkins will also be co-presenting with some of our valued clients, Ray Mercer from Columbus Technical College and Dr. Mike Simmons from Texas Woman’s University.  They will provide information on how their school has implemented READI and how their students have benefited.
