I am excited and proud to announce our third annual .eduGuru Summit. We enjoyed working with Christopher and Ari at Environments for Humans so much the previous two years that we are extremely excited to be working with them again to help manage and launch the event. Like always we are breaking up the summit into two days. We know that most people in high ed web wear multiple hats but not everyone does. So we’d like to be able to spare the focused individuals from hearing a bunch of marketing/strategy talks when they only care about the technical or the other way around. Day one will be for our marketing or strategic gurus and day two will be for the technical gurus.
The two day summit will take place on Wednesday March 27th and Thursday March 28th. With the event barely six weeks away this isn’t something for which you have to wait six months to gain all the knowledge that our experts have to share. As with previous years, chances are you know many of our presenters from their work or you have seen them present before. So let’s get into the details.
What is the .eduSummit?
The eduSummit is a two day online webinar style conference. We do an online conference because it provides lots of advantages including:
- Attending a conference online means no travel hassle
- Bring the experts live to your desktop
- Time spent on the road is better spent instead with family, friends, or in the office
- Sessions are developed to dive deeper into the material
- Ask questions directly to the speakers
- Can’t make it the day of the conference? Watch the recordings whenever you want
