The OEB Global Virtual Experience runs from Nov 30 – Dec 4 and Learning Technologies Germany will again form an important part of the conference programme, specifically focussing on those issues affecting workplace learning.


Online Educa Berlin (OEB Global) is the leading international conference on technology supported learning and training since 1995, and this year we will be moving the OEB Global Experience online, which means that you will be able to join from the comfort of your home or office to engage with and learn from the global online learning community.

The OEB Global Virtual Experience will take place from Nov 30 – Dec 4 and deliver the content and connections you expect from us, including Plenary Keynotes, Learning Cafés, Global Snapshots, Panels and Debates, Presentations, Workshops, Connecting Conversations, Knowledge Exchange Circles, Fireside Chats as well as multiple opportunities to collaborate, connect and network.

Donald H Taylor, Chair, Learning Technologies Conference:

“For many years, we have been saying that technology is the key to the future for education and organisational learning. We’ve talked about how it can spread opportunity and open up new horizons for people around the world. Experts and practitioners in our network have been involved in developing, producing and promoting every kind of technology assisted learning.

Now it’s clear that technology supported learning and training is not just opportunity, it’s necessity. The whole world now needs to embrace blended learning in one form or another. We can no longer rely exclusively on the classroom. Technology and blended learning have to be made a part of every learner’s experience as a matter of priority. Online learning is a key component in international higher education and workplace learning today, with all of us concerned about how best to deliver outstanding learning experiences in this new environment.”

The OEB Global Virtual Experience will focus on developing viable solutions and new partnerships to extend the reach of technology-assisted learning. It will focus on best practice and understanding what works. Its unique network provides not only access to an unrivalled pool of knowledge and expertise, but also access to some of the world’s leading solutions providers.

“We are committed to ensuring that the OEB Global Virtual Experience continues to serve the purpose it has always put at the forefront of its mission: to allow its community to learn, be inspired, engage, share, collaborate, meet and network. It is a platform for people with shared values and interests. We will be offering you more than 50 interactive sessions featuring the world's leading experts in online learning. And what is more - each session will be recorded, allowing you to visit anything you missed in the months after the event, and offering you hours and hours of inspiring content.”
