Welcome from Panopto – Rebecca Avery and Tom Davy, Panopto EMEA

Keynote - Beyond broadcast: creating connection with online video, David White, University of the Arts London

Most students are finding that their face-to-face courses are moving ever-more online in an attempt to become more flexible and reduce costs. While this process might make courses more efficient there is a danger that individuals will become alienated and lose their sense of belonging to a programme of study or institution. In this talk, David White will explore the ways in which online video can be incorporated into practice to create a learning experience which goes beyond consumption by increasing connection.
