The Fully Online Distance Education Symposium (FODES) is a virtual symposium created to bring academics, learning designers, instructional designers, e-learning specialists, and others that design, develop and facilitate Fully Online Distance Education modules or short courses together.

It is an exclusive networking opportunity for like-minded individuals to share, contribute and reflect on theory and practice. It focuses on the innovative use of e-learning tools, pedagogical approaches, online facilitation, student experience, retention and attrition rates, design, and development in the online environment.

If you are involved in any form of Fully Online Distance Education, this is the right event to enhance your knowledge at the comfort of your desk.
