Welcome to day one of the 2008 K-12 Conference! Today’s presentations include:
GETTING STARTED KEYNOTE

Presentation links on our 2008 schedule page have been updated.
A page containing web feeds from the conference is available, including updated links for our 2008 audio podcast and video podcast channels. Note all presentations are not available as videos, some are audio-only.
OTHER UPDATES FOR TODAY
As Darren explained in the post “K12 Online in Translation,” this year we are providing embedded links on dotsub for all video presentations and encouraging volunteers to transcribe presentation content so it will be available in multiple languages.
We are continuing to use blip.tv to transcode submitted videos, and as presentations are published during the conference they will be available on the conference blip.tv page for linking and embedding. As in the past, however, we are working to provide downloadable links from the William and Mary server so educators in locations where blip.tv or dotsub are blocked can download and access conference presentations. Links to day 1 presentations are not yet available from the W&M server but we anticipate they will be available soon.
Our WordPress plug-in for PD credit has been finalized and we expect that to be uploaded and activated later today. A separate blog post with information about these procedures will be posed when it is active.
Welcome to day 1 of our 2008 conference– Enjoy! 🙂
