According to the iMoot site, Lindy’s presentation will focus on Moodle 2.0’s new features such as conditional activities which make for adaptive learning environments.

Moodle 2.0 encourages us as educators to create activities for our learners that activate their engagement with the subject, to lead to deeper knowledge creation and lifelong learning skills.  In this presentation, we explore a course designed for adult learners to accommodate varying entry experience and knowledge levels.  By establishing previous experience and existing knowledge, we encourage learners to build the skills and knowledge they need to move forward in a self-paced, engaging environment.  The course demonstrates ways of using creatively graded activities combined with conditional activity release to achieve learning outcomes that are meaningful to students and educators.
