I Really Hope to See You at Online Educa 2011!


From November 30th till December 2nd I will be attending the excellent Online Educa which bills itself as the “The largest global e-learning conference for the corporate, education and public service sectors”. I’ll be co-organizing two different events and would really like to meet you at either (or both!) of them. One is an Edubloggers dinner (a good Dutch tradition, now in an Internationalised version), the other a workshop in which we will create scenarios […]

So what did I learn at Online Educa 2010?

Innovation / Learning

For the third year in row I attended the Online EDUCA in Berlin. This learning technology event is attended by more than 2000 people from over a hundred countries. The timing and the location of the event are ideal: it is a sweet train journey away from Amsterdam and the end of the year is good time for reflecting on the past year and looking forward to the next.

Online Educa’s Platinum Sponsor Fronter is a Closed Source Proprietary Product

Learning / Moodle / Open

Warning, this is a bit of a rant… I hate false advertising. That is why I was delighted to read that Apple had to pull an iPhone ad recently (see: What the banned iPhone ad should really look like). I am currently at the Online Educa in Berlin where Fronter is the Platinum sponsor. I found their brochure in the conference bag and was appalled by what I read. Fronter has decided to adopt the […]

Learning / Moodle

This year the Online Educa will be in Berlin from 3-5 December. Pieter van der Hijden made a suggestion to me to create a brochure with all Moodle related activities at the Online Educa. I have done exactly that. Please download the PDF brochure here. There are a couple of Moodle activities I would like to highlight in advance: Four different official Moodle partners (CV&A Consulting from Spain, eLeDia – eLearning im Dialog from Germany, […]
