The venue is booked, the theme and keynote speakers have been announced – conVerge13 is shaping up to be our best conference yet. Now it’s your chance to get involved. eWorks is keen to hear from organisations interested in sponsoring conVerge13. We have a range of sponsorship options including a showcase, keynote speakers, the networking function and our fabulous mobile app.

What is conVerge?

conVerge is eWorks’ annual conference for anyone interested in e-learning. It is a friendly, intimate event, perfect for networking and initiating ongoing relationships.

Who will be there?

conVerge is attended by a range of e-learning practitioners including teachers, trainers, librarians, IT professionals, training managers, and learning and development, human resources and compliance staff. Some are getting started in e-learning, others are interested in the latest developments. conVerge caters for all of them. This is your chance to promote your organisation to the training sector.

Tweets from conVerge12

It was great to find – via Jo Norbury – this new tool called Tweet Archivist for archiving and analysing tweets.

If you click on the image above and go to the site, you can click on each analysis for specific data, or download the tweets as a excel spreadsheet. It also provides useful analysis on who was tweeting and from what devices. There are also a bunch of photos that we hadn’t seen either.

Last year we used tweetdoc to collate the tweets in a PDF. We decided to use it again this year, as the tweets are a little easier on the eye in this format than in a spreadsheet.
