Megaconference is changing!
Over the last ten years the Megaconference event has succeeded in achieving it's original goal of connecting people together everywhere on Earth in order to further the use of videoconferencing in education and research and to advance the state of the art in videoconferencing technology. Many of the original team of visionaries that developed and led Megaconference into what it is today are stepping back from their responsibilities at work and with Megaconference.
Help from higher education students and faculty from around the world is needed in order for this awesome event to continue.
Please visit the Megaconference website for additional information and contact the management team if you are interested in serving on the team for future events.
