Comment

The EDEN conference is one of my favourite conferences on open, distance and online learning. And Zagreb is one of my favourite European cities. This year’s theme though brings it directly into competition with the much larger and more commercial Online Educa Berlin, which takes place each year in December. However, as well as the theme and keynotes, it’s a great networking opportunity and a chance to meet the university movers and shakers in European online, open and distance learning.
