Rikke Toft Nørgård, Associate Professor in Educational Design & Technology, Danish School of Education, Aarhus University

I had the great honor & pleasure of being invited to keynote at OEB - it was my first OEB,  but will hopefully not be my last! A great buzz of engaged and inspiring participants!

Njeri Mwagiru, Senior Futurist at Institute for Futures Research (IFR), at Stellenbosch University Business School

I’m also very impressed with the quality of conversation; the questions are rich, the interactions are meaningful as well – I think that is lending itself to continuing engagement even after this event.

Inge de Waard, Senior Learning Strategist & Connector, EIT InnoEnergy & Secret Shakers, Belgium

OEB is the ideal learning event where networking, innovations and knowledge sharing go hand in hand. Each visit is a professional inspiration.

Carlos Alberto Pereira de Oliveira, Associate Researcher at Health Innovation Laboratory in Health (LAIS)

It is very important to come to this event. It’s one of the biggest events that we have in the area. OEB is just a great opportunity to share, and to learn more in the area of open education.

Rachel Collins, Programme Manager at University of Applied Sciences Utrecht

It’s very interesting — so much on offer.

OEB is the place to be in order to both boost your insight in what is going on in the sector today and tomorrow, and to get new contacts from all over the world.

Laura Overton, Co-Founder at Emerging Stronger

It’s a magnet for the curious. It’s magnet for those from education, from corporate learning and development like myself, from education technology providers. Those who are hungry to make a difference and change in the world.

Sean Nugent, Client Services Director at LEO Learning

I really enjoy the mix of academic and corporate at this event. It’s just a great opportunity to learn more about what’s going on in the industry and learn more about the latest trends and really find out what people are thinking and networking with people – it’s been a really interesting event.

Rosa Douma, Project Leader at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences

I came here to get a bit more feeling around innovative in education and what are the hot topics right now internationally.

Donald H Taylor, Chair at the Learning Technologies Conference

One of the key themes at OEB this year is that yes, technology is necessary. We can’t work, we can’t learn without it – but it always has to serve the purposes of the people.

Richard Powers, Learning Designer at Professional School of Education, Stuttgart University

It’s just wonderful to see so many people from universities embracing online education…this year, the buzz is just everywhere.

Stephen Downes, Researcher at National Research Council Canada

Artificial Intelligence has been big for a number of years, but, you know, this is really the first post-pandemic conference where we’ve all been able to get together and talk about it, and talk about what it means for education.

Gila Kurtz, Dean, Faculty of Instructional Technologies, Holon Institute of Technology, Israel

OEB represents the best blend of industry and academia.

Lukas Lewandowski, Country Manager DACH, Coursera, Germany

OEB is a must have event for all those responsible in the education, training or eLearning sector. The extraordinarily high level of the speakers, the variety of thought leadership formats as well as the international audience created a unique, connecting and inspiring atmosphere.
