  • Our day begins in the Pacific Hall with Continental breakfast at 7:30am, followed by our keynote presentation by Daphne Koller of Coursera at 8:15am.  Newcomers are especially encouraged to come early for breakfast and learn more about how to become involved with Sloan-C and the online community.
  • If you would like to purchase tickets for today's Awards Luncheon or a Hollywood Studios 'After 4pm Access' ticket, you must sign up at the registration desk no later than 12:00pm today.
  • If you haven't already done so, don't forget to download the Sloan Consortium Conference mobile app in the iTunes App Store or in the Google Play store for Android.  If you previously download the app, be sure to download the app update first, then hit the "Refresh" button in order to update the app listing to this conference program.  All mobile app users should frequently hit the "Refresh" button throughout the conference in order to keep the schedule up-to-date with any last minute changes.
  • During the conference, over 70 sessions are broadcast live to virtual attendees and recorded for on-demand access for one year post-conference by virtual and onsite attendees.  These sessions are noted with a webcast symbol in your printed program and in the mobile app.  If you missed the instructions on how to access the on-demand recordings, an additional e-mail will be sent to you post-conference. If you have any questions, please email
  • The exhibit hall (Northern Hemisphere A-D, across from registration) opens at 9:00am today.  Join us for a networking break at 10:15am, then return for the Poster Session at 2:35pm - 4:05pm.  Refreshments will be served!
  • While you are in the exhibit hall, be sure to stop by our Social Networking Center and Email Lab.  Use hashtag #aln13 in social media and follow us in Twitter @sloanc_aln for updates during the conference.  Come to the Social Networking Center for assistance from one of our social networking evangelists.
  • Are you interested in having your voice heard?  Join us for one of the following focus group sessions today:
  • For attendees who were disappointed at the cancellation of Wednesday's session "The Power of a Strong Partner:  U of IL - Illinois Online Learning Network", you have a chance to hear that session at today's Poster Session.  Note that posters are set in alphabetical order by title of presentation.  We will see you there!
  • If you are heading to Hollywood Studios this evening, remember there are two options to get there:  catch the "Friendship" boat between the Swan and Dolphin Towers, or follow the map for the approximately 20 minute walk along the canal path.  Have a wonderful time at the park!

This conference is made possible by the generous support of our Sponsors & Exhibitors.
