Fortunately, some of these conferences have decided to retain an open format, or at least, continue to supplement their in-person experience with video recordings accessible online. So we scoured the web in search of these recordings, and compiled more than 500 hours of video recordings of conferences about online education.
These cover a wide variety of subjects, including affordable online degrees, the future of higher education, flipped classrooms and blended learning, online learning communities, OER instructional design, and a lot more.
Below, you can find the latest recordings available for a flurry of online conferences on online learning, as well as recordings of previous editions. We hope you find something that interests you. Please let us know in the comments if we missed a relevant conference.
