Over 320 took part in the online conference between 11-14 June – the second to be organised through the JISC e-Learning Programme.

Conferencing online was a new experience for many delegates, but the variety and breadth of the programme – which included a session in the virtual world of Second Life – made this a not-to-be-missed event. Expert presenters, lively debates and a supportive online community were especially singled out by delegates as highlights of their experience of the conference.
"tell people about the benefits whenever I have an opportunity."
"I just wanted to say what a wonderful experience it was to take part in this event. It was great and I enjoyed every minute! "
Innovating e-Learning 2007 was based around two themes: Institutional Transformation and Supporting Lifelong Learning. These offered rich opportunities to reflect on the part technology can play in enhancing learners' experiences, transforming practice and supporting progression and work-based learning. To get maximum value from the conference, delegates can still log in and read up on the presentations and papers they missed for up to four weeks after the closing date.
e-Books from the conference will be available on the JISC website in the autumn.
