The first day of Expoelearning left us great lines of experts and a full day of networking and business in the Sheraton Hotel in Bogota. The inaugural session of the most important Elearning Congress of Central America has wanted to stress the importance of networking and coordination as pillars of improving education in all its forms. Connectivity, mobility and 2.0 were among the most cited concepts of the day.
Overlap team (pictured: Andrea Lozano, Luis Rodriguez, Eva Astorga, Ravi Purswani, Sol Maria Lopez) has taken the time to learn and, of course, to do networking with the large audience. One of the visitors to our stand was the Deputy Minister of ICT of Colombia, María Carolina Hoyos, who came to know the activity of Overlap.
