× Media & Learning Online took place on 17-18 June and was a very successful event attracting over 600 registrations.

Take a look at this! Building expertise and sharing experience in using video to support higher education in Europe

Practically every European university and college of further and higher education is struggling to cope with the relentless upsurge in video usage. Demand for support amongst academics and students is on the increase as video becomes an increasingly common pedagogical tool while research into the use of video in learning settings is relatively unknown. On the service side, hosting and sharing requirements often outstrip the available services while external services providers jostle with in-house developers in trying to put in place workable and affordable solutions.

This one day workshop will bring together experienced video practitioners and service providers to present and demonstrate innovative practices that work. It will include talks, demonstrations and networking opportunities and is open to anyone interested in discussing the use of video in higher education.

This event is organised by the Video in Higher Education SIG of the Media & Learning Association and the Media & Education SIG of SURFnet in the Netherlands. It is realised as part of the Media & Learning conference organised by the Flemish Ministry of Education, the Media & Learning Association and the European Commission.
