The 18th International Conference on Web-based Learning (ICWL) and colocated events were hosted by the Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences from September 23rd to September 25th, 2019. We welcomed around 100 scientists and students from 32 countries on Herrenkrug-Campus in Magdeburg, Germany.

ICWL is an annual International Conference, founded by the Hong Kong Web Society. The first ICWL was held in Hong Kong in 2002. Since then, ICWL has been held in Australia (2003), China (2004, 2008, 2010, 2015), Hong Kong (2005, 2011), Malaysia (2006), United Kingdom (2007), Germany (2009), Romania (2012), Taiwan (2013), Estonia (2014), Italy (2016), South Africa (2017), Thailand (2018), and Germany (2019).
ICWL 2020 will take place in Ningbo, China.

ICWL 2019 and colocated events featured a technical program of refereed papers selected by the international program committee, poster sessions, and keynote addresses offered by eminent scholars. Follow these Keynote talks in our recordings.

Companion Symposium and Workshops

In conjunction with ICWL2019 the „4th International Symposium on Emerging Technologies for Education“ (SETE) was held. SETE collects the traditional workshop activities managed by ICWL in the past years and was organized in several Thematic Tracks.

The overall experience of co-located ICWL, SETE, and Workshops, provided insight into traditional and novel topics on Technology Enhanced Learning.

ITHET Conference

The 18th International Conference on Information Technology Based Higher Education and Training, ITHET, took place right after the ICWL on September 26 and 27 in the same location.
