Day two of MoodleMoot Global has been filled with insightful talks and informative workshops and it doesn’t end there; tonight is the Moodle Party, so don’t forget your time travel themed costume!

Welcome and keynote presentation

In this morning’s keynote presentation we heard from Andreia Inamorato. At the intersection of research and policy, Andreia’s work contributes to identifying opportunities and challenges in implementing information and communication technologies (ICT) to modernise teaching, learning and training practices in Europe.

Andreia spoke to us on the important topic of ‘Educating for the future: the transformative power of openness’ and explained that progressing an open education model requires commitment at a policy, organisation/institution and individual level. 

Morning coffee break, poster presentation, and day two sessions

The morning and afternoon coffee breaks provided another chance to network with fellow Moodlers and reflect on the important points made in the keynote presentation.

Posters were also presented, including Rafael Lechugo’s poster on ‘Moodle Workplace 4.0’, Guido Hornig’s poster ‘No Time to create Questions for a Quiz? Too many PDFs in your course? Let the questinator do the work for you!’, and ‘Supporting Innovative Pedagogies in Moodle with the new “Engagement activity” plugin’ by Darko Grabar.

After the coffee break, four sessions took place. In the main three rooms, talks were given on Moodle Workplace, Realising the full potential of Moodle, and Supporting an international and diverse community. In the workshop room, talks and workshops were given on Performing brain surgery on the beating heart of Moodle and Adapting course formats to 4.0.

Lunch break and early afternoon sessions

After another opportunity to visit the stands of the 22 sponsors in attendance at this year’s Moot, we broke into another four sessions. These talks consisted of Realising the full potential of Moodle, Testing and integrations and Mobile apps. In the workshop room, there was a Moodle NextGen Workshop, Moodle NextGen as an Open Edtech component, from Moodle founder and CEO, Martin Dougiamas.

Afternoon coffee break, poster presentation and final sessions

During the afternoon coffee break, a second poster presentation session was held. The posters included ACE Enhanced Real-time view of Online Engagement with Moodle by Paul Stevens and Developing the Course Roadmap plug — Providing a visual and interactive course roadmap to students by Stephen Bader.

We then broke into the day’s final four sessions, which included talks on Moodle of the Future, Moodle site management, and Analytics. In the workshop room an Administrator Workshop took place.

Join us at the MoodleMoot party!

To finish up the second day of MoodleMoot Global, attendees networked with their fellow Moodlers and sponsors, with gluten-free beer provided. The Moodle Users Association (MUA) also took place, a chance for anyone interested in getting involved in the MUA to find out more.

Tonight is the MoodleMoot Global costume party for all attendees. Remember to wear a time travel themed costume as a group of ‘experts’ will observe, evaluate, and choose the best and worst costume for the night. The lucky winner will receive a free ticket to next year’s Moot.
