Yes, I’m a Beatles fan and I enjoy listening to songs such as, “I’ll Follow the Sun.” However, next week I will be following the Follow the Sun, Online Learning Futures Festival!

This will be the second for me, and I only missed the 2010 conference due to my work at the Olympics at the time. It is presented this year by three educational institutions, two of with which I am affiliated. The University of Leicester’s Beyond Distance Research Alliance in the UK is where I am registered for my PhD. Athabasca University in Canada is where I took my undergraduate and graduate studies. And, we have the Australian Digital Futures Institute.

This online conference, runs for 48 hours over three continents from March 27 to 30, 2012. Registration is free for the first time this year. I encourage you to join for as little or as much as you wish. Be sure to plan your schedule according to the one or more time zones that work for you. I’m about to do that now, hoping to attend much of it along with enough sleep to keep me going.
