International Education Conference On-Line

Festival format
Greetings from the "On-line Learning Futures Festival" at University of Southern Queensland (USQ), Australia. I am not actually in Toowomba, where the USQ is, I am in my office in Canberra, taking part online. USQ, University of Leicester (UK) and Athabasca University (Canada) are running this "Follow the Sun", event continuously over the next 48 hours. Each institution is located in a time zone approximately equally located around the world, with each taking turns. Registration if free and you can follow the Twitter stream at: #fts12

The festival is using "Blackboard Collaborate" (previously called Elluminate Live!"). I have used this before and it works fine at dial-up speed on a low cost netbook computer.

It happens I am a student at USQ, studying on-line teaching. My literature search is due in today. Perhaps I can have it very up to date by citing some of the speakers at the conference. But how do I cite an on-line event which is still happening? ;-)
