West Coast Moodle Moot – Initial Impressions by @awbodeau #mootusca11

1459

Excited to be attending my first Moodle Moot! I’m Andi Bodeau (@awbodeau) a Technology Integration Specialist for Osseo Area Schools, a K-12 school district northwest of Minneapolis, MN. I am one of the site administrators for Moodle and also train and instruct using Moodle. My initial impression is that Moodlers are a moodlerific group of people! It doesn’t hurt that we are in wine country. I am enjoying meeting other Moodlers and finding out all the different ways that Moodle is being used.

Martin Dougiamas opened the moot with a keynote. Besides being knowledgeable he was very relaxed, easygoing and approachable – plus I love his accent. A few things I took away from his keynote were:

  • Roadmap for Moodle – the development process has been mapped out and major releases will come out every 6 months. The roadmap includes features which are being worked on. Moodle 2.2 is expected to come out by the end of the year.
  • Mooch – is a community hub or place where courses can be downloaded and shared. No longer will instructors have to recreate the wheel. Also a great way to see how Moodle is being used.
  • MoodleMobile – an official mobile app will be released soon for the iPhone and later for Android. I am excited to try this one out! The interface looked very clean and simple to use.

Looking forward to the rest of the sessions to come.

  1. I wonder if there will be a wiki or site that has all of the presenter’s presentations? (powerpoints or keynote presos)

    Actually, Martin speaks rather normally, Andi. I wonder if loved *your* accent? 😉

  3. @Melissa, we’ve asked for the presos, and plan to post them (and the Panopto-captured sessions) to the conference website – stay tuned! We’ll send a note out to registrants when they’re posted.

    Glad you could both make it!
