May 14th, 11am-4pm: AcademiX-Learning in an Open-Access World

*Learning in an Open-Access World*

Join colleagues from across the country in exploring how open access is transforming learning in higher education. Apple and MacLearning.org invite you to AcademiX 2010 for a look at open access, the new teaching methods that are evolving with it, and the Apple technologies that help make it all simple. Six 20-minute talks will expose you to successful approaches, and jump-start a provocative conversation between participants and presenters.

You’ll see how leading educators are finding it easy to produce, distribute, and access academic content using Apple products and open standards. You’ll also learn how students are using Apple tools outside of the traditional lecture environment for research, collaboration, and problem solving.

**One Event, Multiple Ways to Participate**
The presentations will take place simultaneously at MIT and Northwestern University, with audiences at more than a dozen other campuses joining in a live video conference, including a live video feed right here at University of Minnesota. An open microphone will be available at each campus so the presenters and audiences can hear your questions or ideas. Learn more and register to reserve your seat at
