I couldn’t make the trip to Milwaukee this year to attend the 2019 HighEdWeb Conference, but I was still able to find some great content shared on Twitter, the conference website and the journal Link.
So, I’ve decided to create this short selection of what I found the most interesting after spending a few hours watching, browsing and reading.
