Rybakov, co-founder of Rybakov Foundation; A.A. Chernikova, Rector of National University of Science and Technology “MISIS”.

The opening was followed by experts’ speeches and work in different sections.

For example, Aaron Doering, Professor and LT Media Lab director at the University of Minnesota, has travelled all over the world. He turns his trips into educational lessons, taking online education to the next level.By doing so he has created a new concept called adventure learning. Over 15 million people have already watched these travel lessons. The full list of international experts is available by this link.

Moreover, the conference featured a number of platforms, where modern and new technologies in education were demonstrated. It included robots and technologies for online courses recording, excursion lessons with participation effect, virtual planetarium, and more.

The conference finished with a speech delivered by Chief Learning Officer at IBM (USA) Guillermo Miranda. Currently Guillermo works for IBM, where he is in charge of reinventing the end-to-end education and skills enablement practices and platforms across the global enterprise.

Victoria Nechayeva shared her impressions:

“I was pleasantly surprised at the level of event organization, its large scale and efficiency. I managed to get acquainted with my colleagues from Ural Federal University engaged in development of online education and Open Education national platform and work with them. I have learned about trends in education and academic mobility online. I also liked the opportunity to take an online course, which would be acknowledged in your university (it will be included in the diploma supplement). I would like to express my gratitude to the Joint Student Council and the Department for Educational and Extracurricular Work for providing me with an opportunity to participate in the conference.”
