Last week nearly ten thousand educators, students, solution developers, and startups converged to explore and inspire the future of education at SxSWedu 2015.

Between speaker sessions and interviews, judging the LAUNCHedu startup competition, and keeping the refreshments and conversation going non-stop in our relaxing lounge, the McGraw-Hill team enjoyed the complete SxSWedu experience and a healthy dose of Austin, TX hospitality.

In case you weren’t able to make it to the conference this year, here are 4 ways you can still enjoy some of the best moments from SxSWedu 2015:

  1. Catch up on our big news announcements, including the update and mobile release of our Connect adaptive learning environment; live from our SxSWedu lounge with David Levin and Stephen Laster, double-digit user growth across our key digital platforms, and the release of our survey on digital study trends in higher education.
