There are still places left at Ebooks and Econtent 2008 which will feature: e-books and econtent supporting e-learning.

www.econtent2008.com

E-books and e-content are becoming prevalent in all institutions - educational, cultural and commercial - through licensing, digitisation programmes, digital libraries and original content authoring. Content is also becoming more interactive and multimedia. At the same time many organisations are looking at new e-learning strategies which put e-content right at the centre. So how can organisations maximise the use of e-books and e-content to support these emerging e-learning agendas? Should they look to develop new content or turn to the publishing sector for ready-made solutions? Should they use the increasingly freely available content through national resource banks and other open access repositories? Should they develop and re-purpose e-content from existing resources to suit new audiences? And how best can resource managers integrate with other e-learning systems and frameworks such as VLEs and library systems and provide the support that students need? Finally, how are students using e-content in their learning at the moment - and how will this inform how we design content for the future?

This year's e-content meeting will look at these questions with input from e-content developers, e-publishers, business analysts, e-learning experts, researchers and through user case studies. Experts and practitioners will assess good practice from the UK, Europe and internationally. 
 
The programme for E-books and E-content 2008 will include Rod Bristow, CEO of Pearson Education, a leading global publisher of e-content including Safari Books, who will take a global and strategic view of e-content, Dan Burnstone from Proquest (which now includes CSA), the international company involved with collecting, organising and publishing electronic information of all types, will present their view;

Jan Hylen from Stockholm and the OECD will argue the case for Open Access e-learning resources and the development of OA educational resource banks. He will review alternative business models and report on the OECD work in this area;

Sue McKnight, Director of Libraries and Knowledge Resources at Nottingham Trent University and an international expert on e-learning and e-learning resources, will take an educational perspective whilst Liam Earney and Caren Milloy from JISC Collections will talk about the new project focusing on the copyright challenges of re-purposing content for use in e-learning; John Casey, the Jorum Manager based at the University of Edinburgh, will speak on the UK national educational content repository, JORUM, which has now gone open. 

from UCL, Dr Ian Rowlands will report on recent research at UCL on the Google Generation, examining how we search and use e-content, and amongst other case studies Barry Spencer of Bromley College will describe using second life for teaching;

Finally a panel session will inlude Mark Carden, Senior Vice President and General Manager EMEA for Ingram Digital of MyiLibrary. Mark joined Ingram Digital in April 2007, having worked at senior level in the library and information world for over ten years, including a senior positions at OCLC, Dynix and Innovative Interfaces.
