Thank you for a good conference. I learned some, I was reminded of some, I missed something, but I loved the two days of doing something else. My students/kids loved that I came back with new tools for them to use in their education.

The conference provided our team members with a great opportunity to reinforce our partnerships with colleagues from all over Europe and work together on upcoming projects.

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

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.
Viktor Mayer-Schönberger, The Oxford Internet Institute, UK
What’s really impressive to me about the conference is that there are delegates from all around the world. It’s rare, for me at least, to go to a conference where there are so many different people from so many different countries. It’s really great walking from table to table and from booth to booth, hearing different languages and different perspectives on things. It makes for great conversation, and I think it’s nice to have an organisation and an event that really tries to breed that kind of atmosphere as much as possible.

It opened a world that I want to explore.
Helena Janse van Vuuren, North West University, South Africa
I love this conference; the wonderful team does a brilliant job in creating an atmosphere that fosters debate and discussion. Importantly, Berlin is the venue. This avoids the Anglo-Saxon dominance that occurs when it’s in London or the US.
Donald Clark, PlanB Learning, United Kingdom
What I’ve been most impressed by is the diversity, both from the visitors and the exhibitors too. There has been a real range of people that we have been talking to and that we have been to see.
Mike Byrne, Netex, United Kingdom
I had been looking forward to attending this and OEB13 more than met my expectations. I had a wonderful time, fine discussions and came back full of new ideas.
Jeannette Schmid, Goethe-Universität Frankfurt a. Main, Germany
Attending the Online Educa conference was a most worthwhile experience, the conference was very well organised. The sessions were stimulating, highlighting best practice and common tensions in the application of ICT in the education sector. This was such a global conference that I came away with a clear picture of the current initiatives in ICT and e-learning in the European Union as well as many other countries. I left having made new colleagues and friends feeling inspired to share what I have gained from the conference with my colleagues back in Australia.
Dr Jenny Lane, Edith Cowan University, Australia
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.
Ayesha Khanna, Founder and Director of the Hybrid Reality Institute, Singapore
ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN is a fantastic opportunity to meet other people dealing with similar kinds of challenges around training, education, learning and, more broadly, talent management.
Chris Bishop, Future Workplace, U.S.A.
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!
