EPICA at OEB 2018, the leading conference & exhibition on technology-supported learning and training

Earlier this December, we had the pleasure of presenting the EPICA Initiative in Berlin to 2000+ attendees of the OEB Global & Learning Technologies Conference.

OEB Global is the leading international conference & exhibition on technology-supported learning and training for the public, corporate and academic sectors. Each year, learning enthusiasts from more than 80 countries gather in Berlin to discuss the future of learning. The overall theme this year was ‘Learning to Love Learning’. It was a privilege to have the opportunity to present EPICA to such a high-level expert audience.

Our panel of EPICA representatives comprised of:

  • Paul Birevu Muyinda, Makarere University, Uganda
  • Michael Opiyoh, University of Maseno, Kenya
  • Beatrice Okoth, University of Maseno, Kenya
  • Mildred Ayere, University of Maseno, Kenya
  • Rosa García Calero, eLearning Africa, Spain

In a session specifically dedicated to the EPICA project, they addressed a highly interested group of OEB delegates to detail the underlying motivations and goals of the EPICA initiative. This included the project’s history, our current efforts to establish the ePortfolio strategy, as well as how people can get involved, all of which was warmly received.

We would like to thank the OEB organisers, as well as all of the attendees and interested parties who made our presence on behalf of EPICA such a valuable delight for us and the project as a whole.
