Title: RE: [school-discuss] Open Formats vs Industry Standard formats

Greeting fellow travellers,

I thought this conference may be of interest, particularly to folk in Australia.  The focus is fairly broad looking at Schools, Higher Ed, VET & industry.  While the focus isn't around Open Source I am keen to see fair smattering of Open Source zealots at the conference because I think we need to start raising the mainstream profile of Open Source solutions to our shared Ed Tech problems.


The Australian Society for Educational Technology, ASET 2002 International Conference is being held in Melbourne, Australia from July 7-10 2002 at the Carlton Crest Hotel, Albert Park. The theme of the conference is "Untangling the Web: Establishing Learning Links".

It is time to register!

Go to the web site to register and catch up on all the offerings this Conference has for you.
