The first call for papers for the 2014 Moodle Research Conference is now open. In 2014 the Research Conference is coming to the West Coast of the USA and will be held in sunny Los Angeles, California on June 19th and 20th. The MRC,
is an annual international event dedicated to research and development (R&D) in learning and teaching carried out with Moodle. The MRC provides an opportunity for researchers, faculty/teachers, technologists, and other experts who either conduct research on the impact of using Moodle on student learning or develop tools increasing capacity to conduct research on Moodle use. Attendees share experiences and exchange research achievements and innovative developments. The aim of the conference is not to promote Moodle, but to bring together the community using Moodle to provide evidence about learning.
We invite prospective authors to submit full papers and shorter poster papers that critically report on research concerning learning and teaching with Moodle. In addition, this year we invite proposals for demonstrations of Moodle add-ons and analysis techniques that increase the capability to conduct research using Moodle. The conference will be followed by workshops launching collaborative research projects.
Interested authors are encouraged to submit paper abstracts that will cover a contemporary issue in elearning and Moodle use, including but not limited to learning analytics, personalization, adaptivity, interoperability, accessibility, mobile learning and plugins/addons.
