#EUNIS20 Congress case study at the ZOOM blog

When we decided to run our first online Congress, due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we felt we had to do it in a way that reflects the spirit of our community. It seems ‘Virtual Helsinki’ did just that! With more than 500 attendees involved during the week, the participation rate was much higher than one would normally expect from an online conference and the feedback received was very positive! We have also impressed the ZOOM team, our Congress partner supporting us with the conference tool, as they decided to publish #EUNIS20 Congress case study at their blog. Read it here.

We ran over 30 separate sessions including plenaries, parallel sessions and workshops from our special interest groups at our #EUNIS20 Congress in Virtual Helsinki! If you didn’t manage to attend them don’t hesitate to watch the recordings available within the sessions at the Congress web here! You can also reach the abstracts and Congress presentations there.
Full papers submitted for the Congress will be published in the European Journal of Higher Education IT soon. Stay tuned!
