Just in from ULCC marketing communications,
University of London Computer Centre (ULCC) to host MoodleMoot UK 2011
Moodle community event returns to London in April 2011
London, 13.09.2010: ULCC today announces that the popular Moodle conference returns to London and will be held on 19 & 20 April 2011, at Senate House, the University of London’s iconic Art Deco building.
Sean Keogh from pteppic.net, a member of the Planning Committee for MoodleMoot UK 2011, who organised MoodleMoot UK since its start in 2004 up to 2009, says “ULCC did a great job in 2010, and I’m really happy that they have stepped up to the front to take on the job again. I’m looking forward to seeing what new things we can expect for the Moot in 2011 – I’ll be there!”
Planning has already started and we hope to publish the conference website, call for papers and the exhibition & sponsorship opportunities in October.
In the feedback from this year’s Moot, delegates asked for a more tech/developer focused strand and as a result we are looking at putting together a 1-day pre-Moot developer (un)conference. We are glad to have the support of Dan Humpherson, UI Developer at Synetrix/i2Q and member of the Planning Committee for MoodleMoot UK who volunteered to help us organise it.
He says, “This is a fantastic opportunity for Moodle developers to geek out. The pre-Moot should serve as the perfect platform to enable developers to share, discuss, connect and socialise, I’m particularly interested to see what I can learn myself being somewhere between a developer and a designer.”
Mick Kahn, Head of Application Services at ULCC says “We are very pleased to be hosting MoodleMoot UK again. It’s one of the ways to make a contribution to the Moodle community, which is doing so much to take forward the use of learning technology. The conference will allow teachers, developers and administrators across all education sectors to share best practice and explore new ideas for the use of Moodle.”
