A professional e-learning development course and a hackaton session will be added the traditional schedule of workshops, networking opportunities,and master keynotes and talks at the upcoming MoodleMoot Romania 2017 in Bucharest, the nation’s capital.
While the Eastern European country usually flies under the radar of news outlets and analysts, growing interest and developments in EdTech and learning are ongoing in the country. Startup and veteran companies alike are starting to realize the strategic advantages of the country as headquarters. The local community has a special interest for open source solutions, as evidenced by Moodle founder Martin Dougiamas. He visited the city of Timisoara to speak during the 17th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies (ICALT2017) this past July. He will also join the Moot and share his “Moodle in the next 10 years” presentation.
MoodleMoot Romania 2017 will take place Wednesday to Friday, August 23-25th, 2017, at the Ibis Hotel Palatul Parlamentului.
