LEARNTEC xChange inspires e-learning community
Online event gathers 5,756 education experts to share experiences and network
Special online experience thanks to get-together and matchmaking
For three days, topics such as user experience, workplace learning, smart learning and future skills as well as the digitalisation of universities and schools were on the agenda. Participants followed the twelve webinars via live stream on an event community platform. The focus was on interactive exchange between all participants. The community was able to ask the speakers questions via chat and participate in interactive surveys. The result: around 890 questions in the chat and more than 4,650 survey votes were counted. Participants also had the opportunity to take part in one of the 28 virtual roundtables of some LEARNTEC exhibitors. In the roundtables, which were limited by format to half an hour and 45 community members, they discussed digital education solutions with colleagues. The participants also received further information and contact details for individual consultation in the profiles of the LEARNTEC exhibitors.
During the breaks between the individual presentations, participants could start a discussion in virtual rooms and, in line with the motto "Get Together", share their expertise with other education experts via video call. "Especially this interactive exchange of expertise in small groups led to a unique online experience and was used intensively by our community," says René Naumann. "A total of 51 discussion rooms were opened where people actively discussed around topics such as collaborative learning, agile competence development, homeschooling or didactics in higher education teaching." Networking was also offered by the matchmaking function, which suggested industry colleagues with similar interests and with whom participants could network via chat and video call.
