Deadline For CLAMP Moodle Hackfest Approaching, Travel Grants Announced

For the first time, the Collaborative Liberal Arts Moodle Project (CLAMP) is offering travel support for those interested in attending their “Hack/Doc Fest” scheduled for June.

One of CLAMP’s landmark initiatives, Hack/Doc Fests are a chance to meet fellow advocates of applying Open Source technologies to critical thinking, among the many bases of a liberal education. But this is not your regular networking event. Although you don’t have to be a programmer to join, it is expected that you will help develop new features, fix bugs, test features, or write documentation for Moodle.

“Everyone talks about collaboration (…) Moodle Hack/Doc Fest is where CLAMP does collaboration.”

With the travel grants, CLAMP hopes to encourage participation, particularly from newcomers. For the summer event, three reimbursable grants of up to $500 USD will be available.

Applicants for the travel grant must be responsible for supporting or maintaining Moodle at a CLAMP member liberal arts institution. The application deadline is Wednesday, May 10th. Apply here.

The Summer of 2017 Hack/Doc Fest will take place Wednesday, June 21-23, at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, approximately two hours away from Boston.
