HigherEd BlogCon joins SirsiDynix’s Institute Web Seminars in offering free online seminars about hot tech topics. The HigherEd BlogCon web site says it is “a fully web-

focused on how new online communications technologies and social tools are changing Higher Education. Except as noted, presentations are offered free of charge,” sponsored by Thomson Peterson’s, Case, and a few other organizations.

This week, they’re offering several sessions on podcasting, blogging, and curriculum development. Next week’s sessions focus on libraries; the week after, they’re on admissions, alumni relations, and marketing; and the last week in April they’ll look at web sites & web development

Blogs & some podcasts will be available. Some events require a fee, but some are free.
