What a great session, Debbie!  Your sessions are always fabulous, so I know this will be great.


Thanks Michelle. I can breathe a little easier now that it's over. It was fun to talk with everyone. It's your turn tomorrow! I'll stop in but I have to work in the organizing room at that time, too, so will catch the rest via recording if I have to leave.

You'll be super. You're make the best use of the tools you'll be talking about. Can't wait to pick up more tips from you!

As a distance learner myself, I am interested in the pedagogy that developed my current course's structure's. I am also curious about future developments in making interaction more accessible.
I love it!  Too bad we can't do this one *before* the conference! ;)
Debbie, thank you so much! And while I am glad I attended this before finalizing my slides for tomorrow, I have a feeling I may not be sleeping much tonight

Rudy--thanks for coming. I hope you got some ideas you can use, but don't feel pressured to use them tomorrow! Get your rest and enjoy the group. We had such great people in the session today.
