E-Learning in Quebec City

The AACE ELearn conference was held in Quebec City last week, and was a very good international overview of the state of things in this area of research. Many sessions were focused on best practices, evaluation results, new tools and the like. Quite a few sessions were on health information online, both in terms of e-learning for clinicians as well as for patients.

I saw an excellent presentation by Holly Witteman of the University of Toronto who, along with Laura O'Grady, is investigating the use of tag clouds on PEPTalk. This is an interesting use of the PEPTalk application that my colleague Lynda Atack and I have been working on for the past couple of years. After seeing Holly's presentation, I am looking forward to starting this new phase in earnest.
