ONLINE EDUCA is the best place to feel the heartbeat of technology-enhanced teaching and learning. A lot of new information to analyse, brand new tools and technology, meeting with interesting and exited people – this is an incomplete list of benefits that participants can derive from participation in this outstanding conference. I would like to be a part of ONLINE EDUCA every year!

OEB is the premier international conference to learn about learning and the cutting edge of educational tools and materials available. I could not think of a better place to be.

Besides interesting discussions and many great insights, we also got a ton of important contacts and new leads to potential partners!

For me, it was fascinating to see how many people from across the world are interested in learning about the application of technology to education, but I was also very impressed by the number of people who were challenging the assumption that technology is always good. We have to be very careful that we use technology as a tool, not as an end in itself. That was very good for me to see and very useful for me to hear.
