We’ve been hearing fantastic feedback about last week’s OLC Innovate conference in Nashville – so much meaningful networking, so many useful sessions – an overall inspiring event. OLC is indebted to those who dedicated countless hours to make OLC Innovate a truly high-value experience. I thank you and all the members of the OLC community who contributed to the enormous success of this event.
As we get back to work and refocus on our next major conference, OLC Accelerate 2018 in November, I wanted to let you know about one of OLC’s priorities. Like most of you, I came away from OLC Innovate inspired to apply what I learned last week. In addition to all the insights about how the OLC community is driving digital learning innovation (and there were many!), a major takeaway for OLC was a renewed focus on attendee privacy.
As a conference producer, privacy is always a priority. In consideration of recent high-profile cases of data mishandling, along with feedback from our own OLC Innovate attendees about their views on personal data and privacy, I want to let you know that OLC is reviewing all of our data and privacy handling processes. We will be following up with you soon to provide details regarding updates to our policies and procedures, including a transparent view of the data we collect, how we use it, and how you can control the data you share with us.
I invite you to
any additional feedback or recommendations that you believe would be helpful for us to consider in this process.
Thank you again for making OLC Innovate such an inspiring experience for the digital learning community. I hope to see you at OLC Accelerate in November or at one of our OLC Collaborate events very soon!
