Open edX to Host 2021 Conference on LoudSwarm by Six Feet Up

Open edX 2021, a half-day virtual conference on May 27, will be hosted via the virtual event platform, LoudSwarm by Six Feet Up. The conference, “Shaping the Future of Education Together,” will bring Open edX practitioners together to share ideas about online learning techniques. 

Conference organizers chose LoudSwarm by Six Feet Up for its ability to support Open edX’s enthusiastic and highly engaged community. Specifically, LoudSwarm by Six Feet Up boasted impressive networking and community-building features including: 

  • Slack integration, which allows attendees to communicate before, during and after the conference; 
  • Face2Face, a unique feature which allows attendees to video chat with the speaker immediately following their presentation — a virtual recreation of “approaching the podium” to speak with, network or congratulate the speaker at an in-person event; and 
  • White glove service, a team of expert virtual event-planners who ensure the conference is executed flawlessly, help build excitement for the conference through online networking tools, and create opportunities for meaningful engagement during the conference.  

Open edX 2021 will feature leading ed-tech experts discussing the latest research, new approaches to learning and best practices for integrating technology into the virtual classroom. The focus of this year’s event will be the importance of collaborative learning and how technologists are coming together to build the next generation of educational technology.
