NexLearn is hosting the inaugural Immersive Learning University (ILU) Conference at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans, LA January 18-20, 2012. I think it will be an interesting, hands-on experience and worth the cost. Plus you get the software as a bonus.
The Immersive Learning University (ILU) is chartered to educate the learning development industry with practical and advanced knowledge in the science of creating, producing, and deploying interactive learning courseware. The ILU is staffed with professionals possessing the highest level of experience and expertise in the industry of immersive adult learning. The ILU attracts students from corporations, educational institutions and government agencies that envision taking their current training and development initiatives to a state of the art next level.
