Event description


Your video learning ecosystem

Panopto's annual one-day conference will bring together over 200 delegates from universities, colleges, schools and education-focused organisations to share best practices, network and learn about all the latest developments in video for teaching and learning.

The agenda will cover key themes such as:

  • How academic staff are using video to enhance the learning experience for their students
  • How video can be used to foster active learning approaches
  • How students view video creation and video learning
  • How learning technologists, IT and AV staff are supporting new pedagogical approaches with video
  • A deeper dive on the technical roadmap and key technical topics

Speakers include:

  • Dave Cormier, a prominent Canadian educational researcher and learning community advocate who has been instrumental in developing the concept of rhizomatic learning (and who coined the term MOOCs)
  • Eric Burns, co-founder and CEO of Panopto, along with other key members of the Panopto development team
  • Inés Dawson, a PhD student at the University of Oxford and a science communicator. She runs two YouTube channels, making science stories interesting and internationally accessible
  • Customer stories from: Birkbeck, University of London; Cardiff University; Law Society of Ireland; Kids' Health Matters CIC; Imperial College London; the University of Wolverhampton; Edinburgh Napier University; Loughborough University; the University of Birmingham and more.
  • Partner stands from Panasonic, Matrox, Arrow/Seneca and Wolfvision.

There is no charge to attend the event and lunch and refreshments will be provided.
