  5. 5. e-Learning team<br />Division for Lifelong Learning<br />2. Context - sustainability<br />“. . . The carbon footprint left by travel to these professional development events is considerable. One participant, travelling by air to a single conference, produces more CO2 emissions than many countries produce per capita in a year.”<br />“Today, interactive technologies have evolved to a point that travel to many conferences and training programs is unnecessary or could easily be substituted . . . by the use of telecommunications technologies. Online conferences offer an environmentally friendly alternative that has shown to be both effective and economical.”<br />Lynn Anderson and Terry Anderson, 2009 <br />

  8. 8. e-Learning team<br />Division for Lifelong Learning<br />2. Context - Questions<br />Question 3:<br />If there was an online alternative to a face-to-face conference available would you attend?<br />A – Yes<br />B – No<br />C – depends<br />If not, why not?<br />Depends on what?<br />
