Abstract: The Educational Video Challenge “EDIT” is an international online cooperation among the University of Applied Science in Finland, the Pädagogische Hochschule Oberösterreich in Austria and the Johannes Gutenberg-University in Mainz, Germany. The Challenge is organized as a 72-hour Hackathon-style educational event in which university-level students create educational videos. Several e-learning tools e.g. blogs, learning management systems, videocasts, and virtual classrooms are used to connect the universities online and to improve a range of professional and intercultural competences, which are essential for the students’ future careers.
