EdTech Europe | London Business School | 14th June 2013 Industry, Innovation and Investors in one place for one day
8.30 - 9.00 Registration
9.00 – 10.00 Opening Remarks and Market Overview
The global education market is worth approximately $4.4 tn, that is 20% more than the global IT market. Despite its size, change has come slowly to this market until now. Today we can deliver education and training anywhere and at anytime in new formats that are engaging, effective and highly efficient. We have the infrastructure in place to deliver teaching and training via broadband, wireless and mobile to huge audiences. If you add in the new cloud and SaaS platforms, then we have all the ingredients for dramatic change.
There is a paradigm shift underway which will affect the industry and its participants. Existing businesses are having to adapt quickly, new businesses are emerging and investors are seeking ways to respond to these new opportunities. We will look at the key trends, the new business models that are emerging and what investors should be looking for.
10.00 – 10.15 Innovation Showcase
10.15 – 10.45 Break
10.45 – 11.45 Keynote Speech: Engaging Content
The digital environment brings with it new forms of content. It is not a question of how to digitise what has gone before but instead how to respond to the new capabilities that creative design, software and big data can bring. We will explore the impact of gamification, personalisation, adaptive and immersive learning. Can the traditional publishers respond quickly enough? How much more effective is learning through entertainment? Is personalised learning what the user wants?
11.45 – 12.00 Innovation Showcase
12.00 – 1.00 Keynote Speech: Delivery in the e-Learning Age
Anywhere and anytime is the promise of e-Learning. We look at how the access to content through different channels and devices impacts the approach to learning. How is Europe set up to deliver wireless and mobile learning? Does the market depend on users' own devices (BYOD)? Who is the gatekeeper to the content? We will then look at the rise of the MOOCs and alternative access to learning. Is there a business case for MOOCs? Will the value of content be driven down to zero?
1.00 – 2.00 Lunch and Networking
2.00 – 3.00 Keynote Speech : Return on Education (RoE) : Assessment & Analytics
With data, we can measure and analyse the return on education. The opportunity to track and respond to learning experiences in an e-Learning world using big data analytics is now a reality. Data can be used to manage resources more efficiently at a micro level within schools and businesses and also at a macro level to determine policy. Data can be used to understand the learning process, record our progress and improve effectiveness. How much of the learning process will data analytics transform? Who should own this data? For whose benefit are Learning Record Stores? What aspects of the industry will be affected?
3.00 – 3.15 Innovation Showcase
3.15 – 4.00 Industry, Innovators and Investors Panel
Key industry players together with disruptive entrepreneurs and investors will discuss some of the key issues that have emerged during the course of the day. Where will e-Learning be in 5 years time? What areas of the market are likely to undergo consolidation? Why is there a shortage of investment capital in European e-Learning?
4.00 – 4.30 Q&A
4.30 – 4.45 Innovation Showcase
4.45 – 5.00 Launch of the European EdTech 20
