Save your spot for early December at H5P Con 2018! 3 days of conferences, workshops, networking, and collaboration about the future of H5P, the fast-risen modern standard in open interactivity, which has already made a dent in online and distance education. One of the most amazing benefits of open source technologies is the fact that groundbreaking innovation can come from anywhere. And what better place to learn all about it than at the gathering of the world’s greatest H5P minds?
A highlight of H5P Con, its second edition, will come in day 2 with the Conference Dinner, which is an opportunity to enjoy and relax among highly-skilled, inspirational practitioners from the budding H5P community. Throughout the event, three main themes will be addressed, highlighting the importance of EdTech in H5P’s roadmap:
- Integrating and customizing H5P
- H5P’s best uses and improvements
- The impact of H5P in education and training
Keynote speakers include H5P Founder and development team leader Svein-Tore Griff aka “Falcon,” who will share an overview of how H5P has empowered educators, as well as H5P’s goals for the future. A closing community panel discussion will be led by Jelena Milinovic, who will discuss best UX practices and receive comments, questions, and suggestions regarding H5P’s look and feel. Other H5P team members speaking include Pål Jørgensen discussing xAPI in H5P and Oliver Tacke with custom content type development.
An open call for proposals is available. Aspiring presenters can opt for one of seven modalities: A 45-minute “Visual Presentation,” a 20-minute “Working Paper or Project” session, a 1-hour “Tech Demo,” a 5-minute “Ignite,” a 2-hour “Workshop,” or the “Online Challenge,” where a panel jury will evaluate work sent by attendees and non-visitors alike and will award prizes at the H5P Con closing ceremony.
One more exciting opportunity for academics is the “Full research paper,” a 15-minute presentation plus 5 minutes of questions, based on original research which will be the subject of peer review. Accepted interventions will have the opportunity to feature in Springer Verlag’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science conference proceedings series, which showcases outstanding advances in the field from relevant academic events around the globe.
