New developments in Technology
Like many industries, technology is having a huge impact on distance learning. It wasn’t so long ago that the majority of distance learning courses were delivered through hard copy workbooks being posted out to students.
Since then the dawn of the internet, most training is now delivered online through specialist LMS systems such as Moodle and Adobe Captivate.
As well as video, people are now experimenting with Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality, but these are still in their infancy and can be quite expensive to adopt.
Our conference will host speakers that have got experience in using these technologies and will share their findings on how it is impacting learning.
We also have hands-on workshops, allowing you to learn about and try out new technologies such as
360-degree photography and gamification, meaning you will leave the conference with the skills needed to implement some of these exciting developments.
Networking with professionals from all over Europe
We are all aware of how important networking is in the distance learning industry. Many of our members use networking to find specialists in different areas, find out what is working for other companies and share new ideas.
Our members often tell us that because our delegates come from all over Europe and even further afield that they can be more open sharing their knowledge and expertise. This is because they are not networking with people who could be direct competitors.
This year our conference will aim to encourage more networking, connecting you with people who you will be able to create long-lasting mutually beneficial relationships with.
Visiting a beautiful and innovate City
When choosing a location for this conference Tallinn was on top of the list from day one. Not only is it known as a beautiful City, but it also has technology at the heart of it.
Birthplace to many technology startups including the popular video calling software Skype, Estonia is at the forefront of a digital revolution.
The City is perfect for tourism with ancient churches, medieval streetscapes and noble merchants’ houses mixed with a vibrant nightlife.
We would love for you to join us in Tallinn, for more details and to book please visit: http://www.eadl.org/events/eadl-conference-2019-connected-learning/
