This past weekend, Moodle social network, MoodleMeet, hit 1000 members on it’s Ning-based community. MoodleMeet was created in 2007 by Laurie Korte of Northbrook School District in Illinois. Laurie has implemented Moodle into two different school systems through her work and authored a popular Moodle tutorial and guide (for beginner users) called Moodle Magic: Make it Happen, available at Amazon through FTP Publishing. After tackling a book and leading a successful Moodle launch she was inspired to find more like-minded Moodlers online. Thus was born the MoodleMeet.
MoodleMeet’s purpose was to create a Moodle-focused meeting place online for the sharing of resources, to ask questions of a growing community and to learn. The community is a great success and is the largest Moodle-focused community of all Ning based sites.
The site is particularly valuable as a resource finding/sharing site where you can not only find answers to questions and Moodle queries but also find collaborators and a trove of free and available resources, tutorials and videos online. A great information source for any Moodler.
