If you can’t find the answer to your question below or in the FAQs then please contact us at

With the support of EERA, we pilot a new and interactive approach to poster sessions at ECER 2018 to make your poster more visible. For this purpose, we are using an exciting new approach to ePosters, based on the use of Learning Toolbox. This year, the project is limited to VETNET but will be available to all networks from 2019 onwards. You will be a pioneer!

Learning Toolbox for ePosters

ePoster authors will not need to create or transport a paper poster to ECER. Instead they will use Learning Toolbox to create a rich, interactive ePoster that provides an overview of their work. The ePoster can contain links to multimedia and interactive material such as videos, online tools and apps, as well as presentations and background documents. There is a video on this support site showing you an example ePoster so that you can get a feel for how to use this format to present your work.

Disseminating your ePoster

Using Learning Toolbox you will also create a mini-poster (which we will print for you) containing a QR code that will direct people to your ePoster. The mini-posters will be displayed in the poster session room and people will be able to scan the QR code on your mini-poster to easily view and interact with your ePoster on their smartphones, tablets or computers. People can also send questions or comments to your ePoster, and you can answer them. This discussion is attached to your ePoster and can continue after the conference. During and after the conference, the e-posters will also display online on the ECER events showcase of the Learning Toolbox platform.

Presenting your ePoster

You have 15 minutes (incl. Q&A) to present your ePoster in the interactive poster session 02 SES 05.5 PS on Wednesday (12:00-13:30 in room F4.01). You will directly present the ePoster that you have created from the computer. To see how the ePoster looks like during your presentation, just open the ePoster in the Learning Toolbox platform and click on ‘Preview’. At the conference, we will project this on the overhead screen and you can explain your work to the audience by navigating through the resources of your ePoster.

EERA Session “Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox”

If you want to know more about the background of how the Learning Toolbox came about and the educational research it was built on, we are organising an EERA session in the stream Side Event SES 06 called Presenting Educational Research with the Help of the Learning Toolbox – during Conferences and after the Conferences. This session takes place right after the ePoster presentations on Wednesday from 13:30-15:00 in room A2.16.

Many conferences are now using Learning Toolbox to present, share and discuss research. We have seen some great examples of ePosters/stacks created by authors attending these conferences. The 3 minute video below explores some of the great ePosters made by authors using Learning Toolbox.

If your country does not allow access to the Vimeo video streaming service then you can access this video here instead.

You can see and interact with these great ePosters (and more) on the Learning Toolbox Showcase. These ePosters are live and still being used by authors to present and share their work. You will see that they vary in terms of what content they include and how they are structured, but they have all made great use of the platform to present their work.

Of course your own ePoster/stack does not need to be as sophisticated as these examples – a simple and effective ePoster/stack may just contain the abstract, a presentation and a link to a website for example. But we hope these examples may give you an idea of what is possible and some ideas of the type of material you could include to give people a richer view of your work.

We would like to thank the authors of these ePosters/stacks for agreeing to their excellent work being showcased here. If you have come across any brilliant Learning Toolbox ePosters that you would like to see added to this showcase then please let us know so that we can contact the author and ask for their permission to add them.

This video is a longer introduction to Learning Toolbox which shows a fuller ePoster being created.
