A short note to say FUSION 2013 has come to a close and I feel excited, passionate and confident. We leave Boston with rekindled and stronger relationships that are going to help fuel our company’s growth. Our mission is to transform the teaching and learning experience, and these types of events give us the clarity on how we can achieve maximum impact.
Clients are enthused with our vision of evolving from a learning management system to an integrated learning platform, offering products such as Binder™ Shop, which is a compelling end-to-end ecosystem for content for students.
My colleagues and I met with advisory boards from small to large clients and big consortiums, who are really thinking about where we need to take the technology in the next 12-16 months, and also what we need to do in the next two to five years. These are relationships that we have built up over the years, and they give us solid advice on the issues K-12 schools, college campuses and companies are going to be wrestling with in the future.
One of today’s highlights was an amazing keynote from Dr. Alec Couros, who at the end of a tiring three-day conference received a standing ovation for his exceptionally engaging remarks and inspirational ideas on the theme of “Identify, Networks, and Connected Learning.” Search for “Alec Couros” on Google™ and you will have a taste of his genius.
FUSION couldn’t have happened without our clients, partners and sponsors, and I also want to thank the FUSION steering committee at Desire2Learn. They and many of their colleagues worked hard to make the event a success, both here in Boston and back in head office.
Thanks again to everyone who attended, and I hope to see you next July in Nashville.
