GLOBAL eLEARNING MARKETS AND OPPORTUNITIES WILL BE EXPLORED AT THE SILICON VALLEY WORLD INTERNET CENTER ON JANUARY 10
January 5, 2001, Palo Alto, Calif. -- An international panel of eLearning experts from Japan, Germany and the United States will convene at the Silicon Valley World Internet Center on Wednesday, January 10, 2001, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., to discuss with the audience Internet-based learning from various global perspectives.
Projections are that global eLearning opportunities for the academic, government, and corporate sectors will grow over the next several years. The rise of the knowledge-based economy, the eBusiness/eCommerce wave, and the development of Internet-related technologies provide the basis for this growth.
Dr. Michihiko Minoh from Kyoto University's Center for Information and Multimedia Studies; Dr. Joachim Schaper, Director of CEC Karlsruhe, SAP AG (www.mysap.com); and Dr. Ellen Wagner, Chief Learning Officer for Viviance new education, inc. (www.viviance.com) will examine what opportunities exist for these sectors, who the end users are, which solutions are currently available for deployment, and where the new opportunities and markets are.
This international group will look at how culture impacts eLearning markets. Is online learning different in Europe, Asia, and the United States? How do these cultural differences impact the methodology, the content, and delivery of eLearning solutions?
There is a $10 fee for this program. To register, please send your name, title, company, and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 650-462-9800.
