Assess2010 conference round up

On March 30-31st Girton College, Cambridge, opened its doors to over 130 Disabled Student Allowance needs assessors, disability practitioners, assistive technology suppliers and speakers for iansyst’s first national assistive technology assessors conference – Assess2010.

With two days packed full of seminar sessions and networking opportunities Assess2010 was the perfect place to discover the latest assistive technology solutions, find out the latest information from the Student Loans Company and share ideas with peers.

Amongst the many seminar sessions – Abi James, Managing Consultant, Product Innovation at iansyst, discussed and demonstrated mind mapping software tools as an assistive technology tool, concentrating on the new features in MindGenius for Education v3.5 to a great response:

“very useful – will improve my assessments’

‘great presentation – well done’

Anything surprise you? ‘Yes – Gantt charts now available in MindGenius!’

Being iansyst’s first assessor conference it was a huge learning curve to make this event a success and would not have been possible without the support from speakers and sponsors. Feedback on the conference included:

“very well organised.”

“enjoyable, informative presentations and workshops”

“Great venue, great staff and great services! Well done!”

Presentations, videos and photography will soon be available on
