We recently announced details for the Adobe Learning Summit coming to San Jose November 9th. This is an annual event where we share ideas and successes from our customers and partners, our vision for eLearning as well as roadmaps for products and solutions for eLearning professionals. The summit features around two dozen sessions from Adobe customers like Xerox, Intel, Franklin Covey, Thomson Reuters, San Diego State University, Constellation Wines, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement along with several Adobe Product Managers and other experts in Adobe eLearning tools and solutions.
I’m personally very excited to welcome Clay Shirky as our keynote speaker. Clay is a professor at NYU and a prominent writer, educator, and consultant on the social and economic effects of Internet technologies (you might see him quoted a lot right now in the general press regarding Twitter and the impact within Iran). In his new book, “Here Comes Everybody”, Clay explores how organizations are being upended by open networks, collaboration, and the ease of content production and dissemination afforded to individuals due to the internet. I recently finished his book and recommend it to anyone interested in eLearning or collaboration; very applicable to anyone with an interest in knowledge sharing. I can’t remember the last time I had three pages of notes from a book I ostensibly read for “fun”.
