Since the beginning of 2021, LEARNTEC - Europe's #1 in digital learning - has been organising its free online event LEARNTEC xChange as an additional offer to the trade fair and convention for the e-learning community. Whether corporate learning, digital university or school: In online lectures, workshops and discussion rounds, the education industry can further their education and expand their knowledge and network free of charge at LEARNTEC xChange from home or the office.

Review: LEARNTEC xChange from 1 to 3 February 2022

At the beginning of February, the e-learning community met online at the third edition of LEARNTEC xChange. Included: More than 25 speakers and around 3,690 participants! The topics ranged from future technologies to new work and augmented reality to digital university exams and the inspirational space of school.

With the free format LEARNTEC xChange and the broad selection of online lectures on digital education in the workplace, universities and schools, the waiting time for the next LEARNTEC was shortened for the community. Together, experts and participants took a look at relevant topics and highlighted trends that can be explored in more depth in person at LEARNTEC at the end of May.

Participant statements

«It was a highly concentrated, very successful event with highly competent discussion partners and a very informed and open-minded audience. Of course, a face-to-face event is nicer, but with this LEARNTEC the possibilities of hybrid and online events were shown. That makes me want to do more.»

Dr. Anita Stangl, 2nd Chairperson of the Bündnis für Bildung

«The diversity of the participants is a big plus of LEARNTEC or LEARNTEC xChange. People from different fields of work, industries and professions broaden their own horizons and many great ideas and concepts can be coupled and developed.»

Lars Thiele, technical editor at Poly-clip System

«This experience made a lasting impression on me! Not only did the lecture go well, there were 1,500 participants in my session. In the get-together afterwards, another 65 came by, the many requests to speak were hard to cope with. Many great contact requests on LinkedIn and then great bilateral exchanges. There has never been such a response to any of my previous presentations. I don't think it was the content. Rather, the setting was perfect for it.»

Chris Böhler, expert of digitalization

«More than 1,000 learning enthusiasts listened to me today in my talk on Smart Learning Environments. In the Get Together, a great format, we then talked about utopias and dystopias and considered together how technology ecosystems from IoT, AR and X-reality will change our lives and learning. Thank you, dear LEARNTEC, for this great event.»

Dr Sirkka Freigang, Head of Smart Learning at Bosch.IO
