The EADL held a joint OEB pre-workshop with BIBB and the German association Forum-DistancE-Learning.
Jens Greefe, Vice President of Forum and Chair of the R&D Committee at the EADL opened the proceedings and introduced the film below from Sabine Verheyen of the EU Parliament.
We then welcomed Paul Hearn from the EU who gave an introduction to the EU Academy project. Paul’s slides can be downloaded here: Introduction to the EU Academy
John Trasler then reported on some finding on Blockchain in Education before encouraging some audience debate on the subject. Lively debate ensured on this new technology and it is clear that this is a topic that will be open for much more discussion in the coming years.
