A Council of University Classics Departments Teaching and Learning Symposium hosted by the Open University, UK and supported by the Institute for Classical Studies


The iLatin and eGreek one-day conference explored the use and effectiveness of new technology in teaching classical languages. Presentations focussed on resources and pedagogy: the materials out there for learners and teachers of Greek and Latin, and the problems new technology might help to address. They also explored ways of evaluating the effectiveness of technology for enhancing pedagogy and suggested guiding principles for the development of interactive websites, apps and other technology-based resources.

Participants at the conference were encouraged to tweet with the hashtag #iLeG and the event has been ‘storified’ here.

Videos of all presentations are now available via the links below:
