#EDENChat: E-learning in the heritage sector

The session will focus on e-learning in the heritage sector, with a focus on museums. It will aim to prompt a discussion on the role of online collections and engagement practices in supporting school education and lifelong learning. It will also explore how social media communication contributes to the dissemination of digital museum content and thus the educational impact of this form of engagement.
