Share your feedback and win 2 tickets It seems everyone had a great time at MoodleMoot UK 2010. To help us make sure next year’s organisers have a headstart we are putting together a little ‘how-to-run-a-Moot’ report with lessons learned. A big part of this report will be the feedback from the delegates. What went well, and what didn’t? What should continue and what should Read More …

Feedback from Anne plus …

As a first-time MoodleMooter I would like to add my twopenn’orth here and say that I particularly enjoyed the friendliness of all whom I spoke to.  I feel rather red-faced with embarrassment because I was the one whose husband gatecrashed the wonderful guided tour. I recently unearthed this vintage picture of us both … Source: https://www.flickr.com/photos/dr-anne/4562826803 mind map I used mind42.com to create a personal Read More …

Facilitator Post – David Hooper

I would certainly echo Martin Sepion’s comments about the opening presentations from Professor Geoffrey Crossick and Professor Sugata Mitra being good – they kicked off the Moot with a buzz that lasted the whole conference. I facilitated the Moodle in Schools workshop which was equally inspiring; children in year 2 upwards were using moodle with a variety of colourful themes (one memorably based around creepy Read More …

Moodlenomics – what is it?

Unfortunately a lot of the description for the moodlenomics session seems to have gone astray, so I thought I would provide this as a summary, so that people can decide if it sounds interesting. Open source projects like Moodle are not a case of someone programming in their spare bedroom after work any more.  In order to survive and grow, they have to have a Read More …

As opening day for the Moot approaches and I start to think seriously about my first trip ever to the UK, I have also been lucky enough Read More …

From Philip Butler ULCC, Chair of MMUK10 Programme Committee Running on adrenalin during MoodleMoot UK 2010 (#mootuk10) meant that the following days have been returning to earth with a bump!  I imagine it’s similar to what astronauts must have felt when returning to earth; the world is familiar but strangely different.  The annual UK Moot took place 13 & 14 April 2010 with the impressive Read More …

Facilitating at MoodleMoot 2010

IMG_1675-300x225

Last week I had the pleasure of facilitating four workshops at MoodleMoot 2010 held at University of London Senate House which was very convenient for me as all I had to do was go upstairs to attend. The event had a real energy throughout the two days, which was kick started by a visionary speech from the incoming Vice Chancellor of University of London, Professor Read More …

Moodle: Where are the Teachers?

I’m looking forward to presenting on “Moodling with the Primaries“ in a few weeks’ time.  I am glad that,  like the imoot model, there are strands for Teachers as well as other users of Moodle. I intend highlighting some of the good  Moodle activities our local primaries have been doing, sharing my school’s primary liaison work and talking in general about my experiences helping primary Read More …
