A short interview with Thomas Lancaster, one of the speakers at URKUND PEPP-talks

Hello there Thomas! What can the participants expect from your presentation?

Online Educa in Berlin 2017

URKUND attended Online Educa in Berlin on 6th-8th December. The stand was kept busy; lots of users from Denmark and Norway came by and, as many of them are in the process of changing LMS/VLEs, they were interested to see how URKUND works when integrated into another system. URKUND had visitors from all over the world during the conference. OEB was also a great opportunity to say hello to representatives from other systems to discuss existing or proposed integrations. See you next year!

SURF Onderwijsdagen 2017

For the fourth year in a row, URKUND had a stand at SURF’s Onderwijsdagen in Rotterdam’s World Trade Center 7-8 November 2017. We were kept busy by the delegates who were impressed by the quality of our integrations, especially the ones with Canvas and Brightspace/D2L. It was great to see so many familiar faces there and, of course, to have the honour of being next to our friends Xebic again. Thank you to everyone – clients, prospects, partners and the organisers – for making the two days so enjoyable.
