Carol Skyring (formerly Carol Daunt), Founder & CEO, LearnTel
Carol Daunt

I’m an experienced educator and businesswoman who has been involved in the design, application and effective use of eCollaboration since 1986.

I hold a Dip T; Grad Dip Dist Ed; B Ed & M Ed (Research) – my thesis investigated the nature of interaction in videoconferencing. I’m currently undertaking an Education Doctorate to investigate knowledge sharing through microblogging (see wiki). I’m regularly published in numerous journals and am a frequent speaker at international conferences. (Access these papers & articles.)

I hold positions on, and am an active member of, numerous industry panels, boards and committees.. I’m currently the Executive Officer for the Learning Technologies User Group which provides a forum to share expertise, experience and ideas and to remain informed about developments in learning technologies and their applications.carol-amalfi-medium.jpg

Above is my ‘official photo’ – but I’m quite fond of the one to the right that was taken on the Amalfi Coast after the EDEN conference. I used the ‘nose’ part of it for the header of this blog.
