Our first U.S. Questionmark Breakfast Briefings for 2010 are set for Boston and New York next week, so it seems like a good time to remind you about our annual visits to various cities. Questionmark staff look forward to greeting you at a briefing and sharing the latest news about online and mobile assessment.

Each briefing will include a complimentary breakfast at 8 a.m., followed by presentations and discussions from 8:30to about 11:30 a.m. There will be an overview of Questionmark Perception and a demonstration of Questionmark Live browser-based authoring, which makes it easy for subject matter experts to write everything from individual questions to entire assessments, including course evaluations.

We’ll cover lots of other topics  too, including:

* Delivering a single assessment to multiple devices, with centralized processing of results
* Using mobile devices such as Android phones and the Apple iPhone and iPad for quick course evaluations, observational assessments and more
* Assessments embedded within learning mashups on wikis, blogs and portals
* Integrations of Questionmark with SAP, SharePoint and other systems
* New tools for analyzing the results of surveys, quizzes and tests
* More meaningful reporting on the results of course evaluations

There will be a Questionmark User Group lunch and meeting after each of these briefings for people who are already using Questionmark Perception. User Groups offer an excellent opportunity to talk in depth about new technologies, to exchange ideas and to ask questions and get answers.

Here’s the schedule:

* Boston, MA (Woburn) –  Tuesday, September 21
* New York, NY   – Thursday, September 23
* Chicago, IL  – Monday, September 27
* Dallas, TX  – Tuesday, October 19
* Washington, DC  (Bethesda) – Thursday, October 21
* Ft Lauderdale, FL – Monday,October 26
* Los Angeles, CA  (Agoura Hills) – Tuesday, November 9

Questionmark customers will be getting together with Questionmark managers in September and October for a series of regional user group meetings. We started organizing these meetings a few years ago in conjunction with our annual series of complimentary Breakfast Briefings that introduce people to the basics of using Questionmark Perception. During user group meetings, our customers get an in-depth look at new product features and have the opportunity to share their views about our products and services. They also have a great time networking with each other and learn a lot in the process.

Here’s the schedule for morning briefings and afternoon user group meetings:

September 1: Boston
September 3: New York
September 24: Chicago
October 6:  Dallas
October 8:  Washington, DC
October 20: Atlanta
October 22: Los Angeles

Online registration for the user group meetings is available here.

People who would like a basic introduction to the use of Perception can sign up for a briefing.
