Innovate-Ideagora Interviews
Denise Easton, ULibeAndLearn, August 17, 2011.

Denise Easton posted the following note to the Linkedin version of Ideagora: "We have a wealth of webcast archives that were offered in support of the Innovate journal articles. I invite you all to share them in your social networks and via social media-- Lets see what happens." This will be very good content with some of the leaders in education technology. I can't wait to get them all running on Ed Radio.
