Many delegates will be presenting case studies and leading peer discussions. And we’ve put together product training, best practice and drop-in demo sessions to suit everyone from beginners to power users.
Here’s the complete conference line-up. You can Click here for details about all these sessions:

“The Social Network” – a movie about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg — was a big winner at the recent Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles. And we’re pleased to say that social networks will be high on the agenda as Questionmark users gather in LA (with black ties nowhere in sight!) March 15 – 18 for the Questionmark 2011 Users Conference.
We’ll be paying considerable attention there to the growing importance of social networks as one aspect of a major shift in how people learn. Many organizations, recognizing that the vast majority of what we learn comes from firsthand experience and from other people rather than from formal learning and study, are turning to informal and ‘social’ learning initiatives that use portals, blogs, wikis, forums and other tools. At this year’s conference we’ll be highlighting many new features and applications of Questionmark’s Open Assessment Platform that work in concert with many commonly used informal/social learning technologies – from embedded and observational assessment to new user interfaces and tools for content evaluation. (See a sneak peek below — and come to the conference for more on this!)
We’re looking forward to seeing you at the conference in March – we’re making sure the conference agenda will be packed with sessions and events that we’re sure you’ll be able to “like.”
