About two years ago I went to the eLearning Update conference in Jhb! It was one of the best conferences I have ever attended on eLearning with every single presentation keeping my attention. I contacted Prof Johannes Cronje during the week and asked him to send me marketing material for the conference. He not only did that but also created a discount code for anybody entering the code when they pay for the conference! You can save R500 by entering #nicobaird when you pay.
If you attend please also let me know! I would love to meet you!
This is one conference that is absolutely value for money!
