MOOC bite - Tools and techniques for idea generation and development
During your journey in DigiEduHack, you and your team, will be developing a solution to an existing challenge. This document aims at helping you design your solution in an iterative way, and giving you an overview about what Design Thinking is, how to use this problem solving approach and what type of tools/methods/canvas you can use during each of the steps of the process.
MOOC bite - Communicate your ideas
After developing a solution with your team in DigiEduHack, you need to communicate it efficiently. Within this document you will find explanations aiming at helping you prepare to present your solution to the judges at local level, you’ll learn about the importance and elements of a good presentation, several tips and trick about how to convey your idea in an appealing way and how to organise your pitch.
These intellectual property guidelines explain how we treat the information you and your team provide about the solution you have developed during the Digital Education Hackathon you participated in.
Find here below a fillable canvas that you can use to structure your ideas in preparation for the presentation of your solution to your host. Remember: the more information you provide, the more informed your host's evaluation will be!

What is the timeline and schedule for the hackathon?
DigiEduHack will have a duration of 8 days, kicking off with an opening event on 6 November and closing with a Main Stage event on 13 November. See your local organiser’s page for more information about the schedule and timeline for the challenge of your choice.
Can I participate in the hackathon remotely, or do I have to attend in person?
DigiEduHack will take place in Europe and beyond, and the format of the hackathons depends on your host organisation. You can attend online, onsite or even blended hackathons. Consult your local organiser’s page and the specific challenge to learn more.
What is the expected level of expertise or skills required to participate in DigiEduHack?
You can join DigiEduHack and its local events both with or without a team!
In case you join without a team, you will be put in contact with peers in the same situation through the Discord channel associated with your chosen challenge, and your host may propose “matchmaking sessions” to help you find your team.
In case you join with a pre-existing team, make sure you mention it in your registration to the challenge.
Can I work on an existing project, or do I have to start my solution from scratch?
You don't necessarily have to start from scratch, but you must make demonstrable progress on anything that you began before the hackathon. (You cannot simply bring a ready-made solution and be eligible to win a prize.)
