Who’s Here? Online Education Exhibitors at ASAE Tech 2013

BY Celisa Steele

ASAE Tech 2013Today marks the end of ASAE’s 2013 Technology Conference & Expo in DC, and Jeff and I are here to walk the floor again (as we did yesterday) and check out the companies focused on technology-enabled and technology-enhanced learning.

The hard costs (travel, exhibitor fees) and soft costs (staff time to prep, attend, and follow up) of a conference like this are not insignificant, so the fact that companies made the decision to come shows, to my mind, a certain seriousness on the exhibitors’ part about the association market. Since tracking learning technologies and providers is part of what we routinely do here at Tagoras, it’s a nice to walk the floor and be able to check in with so many companies and individuals at one fell swoop. And I thought I’d share the list of technology-enabled and technology-enhanced learning exhibitors with our readers—it continues a bit of a tradition, as we did similar posts for online education exhibitors at ASAE Annual 2012 and ASAE Annual 2010.

The alphabetical list below includes a blurb on the exhibitors to give you a sense of their products and services. Companies with an asterisk (*) before their name are included in the most recent issue of Association Learning Management Systems. (Note: We conduct all of our technology research independently and do not accept finders’ fees or commissions from any learning technology providers.)
