Sponsors/Exhibitors 2018

NDLA, now doing business as the Nebraska Digital Learning Association, is hosting its 17th Annual Conference, Digital Change: Beyond the Device, February 22-23, 2018, at the  Hotel RL (a Red Lion property, formerly the Holiday Inn) at 3321 S 72nd Street, Omaha.

Attendees will be 100+ leaders in Digital, Distance and Blended Learning from K-12, Higher Education, State and Local Government, Telehealth, and non-profit content providers.

The conference format allows for several breakouts; round table discussions and networking; pre-conference activities; keynote and spotlight speakers; as well as time to visit sponsors and content providers. Breakout sessions highlight best practices in K–20 education, telehealth, content provider programming, and hopefully sessions from your institution—as a sponsor—showcasing the latest and greatest in solutions for all aspects of distance or blended learning.
