The annual connecting online conference started in 2009 with Minhaaj ur Rahhman and I on WikiEducator, but soon found a home in a Ning social network. Every year the name of the Connecting Online Ning changes to the current year. Next year, it will be CO13. CO09 was such a success that we decided to go for CO10. In CO10, I was fortunate to have a team of volunteers help me moderate the sessions. It was great to collaborate with other educators from such countries as Australia,UK, US, Saudi Arabia, and Canada in moderating the WizIQ classes. In CO11, we also had a team of volunteers to moderate the sessions. Dr. Ludmila Smirnova and Nicola Avery did an amazing job last year and have returned to moderate the sessions in CO12. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ludmila and Nicola and the team at WizIQ for caring and contributing their time and effort to ensuring the success of the conference.
Theme of the Conference
The conference will be of interest to educators, administrators, students, and community members who value the importance of integrating technology into the curriculum to improve instruction, learning, and business.
