This MoodleMoot is part of the larger “Emerging Technologies for Online Learning (ET4Online)” symposium and conference which is coordinated jointly by the Sloan Consortium, MERLOT and MoodleMoot International Symposium. The collaborative event will host a number of tracks (including the traditional all-Moodle track at all Moots) and is sure to draw a diverse crowd of online learners, educators and educational technology vendors (not exclusive to the Moodle LMS).
The Symposium will be held July 20-23, 2010, at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, CA. The proposal submission deadline is January 18, 2010. See the US West Coast MoodleMoot 2010 site for more details.
Additionally, this year’s West Coast US Moot is utilizing Twitter to catalog announcements and information about the event, #et4online. The MoodleMoot International Symposium helps to organize and publicize global Moodle events.
No registration cost has yet been released to the public (though registration will open officially on 1/15/10). For more information please visit the official event website: http://www.sloanconsortium.org/et4online
