Many schools have been using Moodle for years, even decades.

Having now had Moodle operational for only a Semester, there are a lot of learnings that can be shared in terms of configuration, usability, and training. This presentation seeks to share those learnings.

Richard Ings – Managing Director, Asia Pacific, ReadSpeaker
Production of in-house video content is now a standard feature of an engaging educational environment. But most educational institutions lack the production facilities, professional voice talent or the time to record, re-record and produce professional quality narration of in-house video production. And then you need to make a change and do the recording process again! In this training session, I will run a live demonstration of how ReadSpeaker SpeechMaker text to speech technology can be used to quickly and cost-effectively add natural sounding digital voice narration to educational video content using commonly available software audio and video production software.
So bring your inner Steven Spielberg along to this session and let’s make a mini educational video.
