The OEB18 took place in Berlin, Germany 5-7 December 2018. The theme this year was DIVERSE, COLLABORATE, TRANSFORM. OEB Global, incorporating Learning Technologies Germany brought participants to the forefront of learning and technology developments, giving new insights on opportunities and challenges that are changing the world of learning. The latest best practice from leading organizations was there, allowing participants to meet, discuss and network with policymakers, higher education leaders, chief learning officers, technology and learning experts, learning and development professionals, change managers, ICT administrators, online learning curriculum designers and many many more. The OEB18 had a unique, cross-sector focus, fostering exchange between the corporate, education and public service sectors. In short 2,000+ international learning professionals from over 80 countries, brought together their expertise and experiences, about 100+ exhibitors, ranging from established global learning and technology market leaders to emerging EdTech start-ups, and some 100+ sessions in various formats: hands-on workshops, plenaries, interactive breakout sessions, discussions and debates, labs, demos and performances.
