#MoodleMootau2015 wrap up

Moodlemoot logoI am about to board a plane on my way home after the annual Moodle Conference in Melbourne. The many words I have heard and spoken over the last week are floating around in my head and the one I keep repeating is “Bricoleur”.

Moodle Evolution: Moodle Moot 2014 Wrapup

This year’s Australasian Moodle Moot’s theme was ‘Evolution’ – and the keynote address by Alec Couros swept us into the future with his vision of the educational potential offered by the tools of connectivity.

MoodleMootau13 – a quick review

Watching a whole lot of Moodlers in a room getting excited about the new things in 2.5 and 2.6 was a great way to kick off MoodleMoot. The tweets were flying thick and fast! Martin Dougiamas took us through the development priorities, I am particularly excited about an assignment annotation tool that allows annotations on a PDF as well as the updated analytics and reporting functionality. Watch out for a Moodle MOOC being run in September 2013 – it will be huge. Martin’s presentation is available on slideshare.
