Maplesoft Announces Int’l Summit Series on Online Education
WATERLOO, Canada, Oct 30, 2017 – Maplesoft has announced an International Summit Series on online education, two of which will be in North American cities. The series of five Maple T.A. and Möbius User Summits includes stops in Toronto (November 2-3, 2017) and San Diego (January 9, 2018) and will focus on transformations in online education. Educators, long-time customers and users will gather for discussions on evolving trends and technology in online education, and hear presentations on the latest news and features of Maplesoft’s online STEM courseware platform Möbius, as well as the popular testing and assessment tool Maple T.A.
Maplesoft President and CEO Jim Cooper addresses the recent European user summit in London.
Attendees will examine the present and future of online education, including some of the ways in which technology can be used to provide an effective and engaging online STEM learning experience that benefits both students and educators. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to network with educators from around the world, discover how online learning solutions are being implemented, and learn about new tools that are being developed to further enhance e-learning opportunities. The summits will feature up-to-date information on Maplesoft products, presentations from users and developers, and training sessions on how to most effectively utilize these online education solutions.
The Toronto summit will feature speakers from leading institutions including the University of Waterloo, University of Guelph, Memorial University of Newfoundland, and Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. These institutions have used Maplesoft’s solutions to revamp the way teachers administer courses and materials, and will share their experiences. Speakers and presenters for the San Diego Summit will be available shortly.
