The community plays an important role in bringing new topics and ideas to SXSWedu. PanelPicker, the online platform for SXSWedu programming, allows the community to have a significant voice in proposing and selecting sessions for the event. The interface empowers the community to not only submit ideas, but also vote, comment and recommend the sessions they most want to see at the event.


This social media platform is designed specifically for SXSWedu registrants to connect and collaborate with other attendees before, during and after the event. In eduSOCIAL, registrants have the ability to use the SXSWedu directory to search for and message other conference attendees, communicate with the SXSWedu Housing Desk, print their badge pickup QuickCode and more. Activate your eduSOCIAL account after you complete your registration to participate in the official communications hub for SXSWedu attendees.

Podcasts & Videos

Archives of programming from previous events are available for free online. The SXSWedu podcasts and videos are great for discovering sessions you missed and even revisiting old favorites.
