What's it about?

The event is a two and a half day hackathon for people who are interested in solving learning challenges. - And, no, you do not need to know how to write code! Ideas and concepts are just as welcome as tangible prototypes.

What might you work on?

We are interested in your ideas and prototypes on how we can make learning easier, more convenient, more fun. We have a few specific challenges around educational content, but ultimately it's up to you what you bring to the weekend.

Here are some examples to get you started:

Ever wondered what Moodle looks like under the bonnet and why it looks and behaves the way it does? Perhaps you have a great idea of how a course topic might be presented in a more engaging manner. Maybe you have always wanted to build a brilliant new educational app but don't know quite where to start. Or are you in fact an accessibility champ who has a wealth of ideas on how we could improve what we are currently doing? Perhaps Open Data is your bag and you're wondering what UCL is doing on that front.

Still not convinced?

Maybe none of those things really appeal to you. Come anyway just for the fun of it. Have delightful conversations with people you may never otherwise meet. Watch other people build cool stuff and be inspired. Offer your insights and help us facilitate the event. Sometimes just being present can spark ideas for new projects and make you feel more connected with the wider UCL community.

As long as you are interested in education and learning in some shape or form, you will not feel out of place. Apart from meeting a bunch of like-minded UCL folk, there will also be talks to get you thinking and workshops for you to learn new skills.



NOTE: This event does not include sleepovers.

If you choose to work through the night, you will need to make your own arrangements as the venue will not be available.
