Great Minds on Learning

Apr 24, 2023

The Internet and the World Wide Web have revolutionised the way knowledge is produced, mediated and consumed. This episode focuses on a group of entrepreneurs who have given us the online tools and platforms that now dominate global learning. Some of them also happen to be world-leading tech brands: Google, YouTube ... and the new kid on the block, OpenAI. The episode was recorded in front of a live audience at the Next Learning Conference in the Netherlands.
