  • “The conference has been amazing so far. This is the first user’s conference I’ve attended, and Austin’s a great city to host it in. Looking forward to some more great presentations.” Melanie McAuley, A.T. Still University of Health Sciences
  • “No matter how long you’ve been working with it, there are so many things that are happening. New things get implemented; always a refresher course is a great thing.” Jogy Das, SUNY Oswego
  • “The conference has been great. There’s been a lot of networking. I’ve been enjoying the testing as well. The sessions are really interesting. It makes me think about presenting in the future.” Amy Kline, Bank Street College of Education
  • “Seeing everyone who works at Tk20 and hearing from Bhupi shows that at every level at Tk20, the people really do care. It’s helped reinforce our decision to go with Tk20.” Amy Kline, Bank Street College of Education
  • “I’m really enjoying it. It’s nice to meet with different people. The collaboration with other users is so very important. This gives us an opportunity to ask, ‘Oh, how did that work for you?” Mary Reed, University of Jamestown
  • “I enjoyed the usability testing and giving my opinions on what we want. I feel like when I make a suggestion, that I’m taken seriously, so that’s always handy to know the customer is important.” Mary Reed, University of Jamestown
  • “I’d recommend anybody who uses Tk20 on a daily basis come to the conference. It really is very educational and such a great experience to meet the people you work with.” Brittiani McNeil, Ursuline College
  • “It’s really good to get with other users, your peers, and institutions to see how they’re doing things. Sometimes it’s good to get out of your own shell in order to expand what you want to do at your institution.” Edward Gonzales, University of Texas at Arlington
  • “I would rate this training in the top 5 that I have ever experienced (and there were many). The quality of the Tk20 staff was second to none.” Robert Martin, Delaware State University
  • “This training has provided me the opportunity to understand Tk20 and its possible advantages that will be instrumental in helping our students and faculty utilize Tk20 in meaningful ways.” Teresa Valenzuela, New Mexico State University
