As a fellow Moodler, you’ve no doubt heard about the thriving calendar of MoodleMoots held around the globe.
These are gatherings where Moodle users discuss all things open and online learning, and, specifically, Moodle. In the past, these “Moots” have been regional or sponsored by a Moodle partner.
MoodleMoot US 2018 will be held October 29 and 30 in Denver, Colorado, and Moodle HQ is working on making this an event like you’ve never seen before! This year’s event will have a focus on development, creativity, design and functionality. Attend to connect with other Moodlers and learn about and share information on key topics associated with the open-source learning platform, including:
- Moodle Development: a focus on code
- Moodle Success Stories and Usage Studies: a focus on use and best practices
- Moodle Design and Functionality Training: a focus on tips, tricks and training
- What’s New From Moodle: a focus on project updates & what new is coming up from Moodle HQ
This year’s US Moot is set to be the largest, most interactive one to date!
eThink Education will be a “Gold Sponsor” of MoodleMoot US 2018. A “support team” will attend (the whole gang, in fact) so you’ll have the opportunity to meet with them and pepper them with whatever Moodle questions you may have.
As one of the co-founders of eThink, this is a key event for our team each year. We look forward to meeting clients in person that we may have only interacted with via phone or email. It is like meeting an old friend for the first time, and there are usually a few hugs and selfies! Here are a few snaps of us from last year’s Moot with some of our clients:
Chief Moodler Martin Dougiamas will be in attendance, presenting a keynote and making time for one-on-ones. In addition to Martin’s presentation, we are currently looking for another keynote speaker for Day 2 of the event. So if you have suggestions, please submit them here!
