Interested in Moodle? Find a MoodleMoot to Attend!

Moodle is a great open source and freely available online learning management system, but what really makes it special is the large community of teachers and administrators that are using it in many different and innovative ways. And that is why Moodle conferences called MoodleMoots (gatherings of wise Moodle users) are always great events to attend for anyone already using Moodle or trying to learn more about it. They are a great opportunity for people to share best practices and to find new connections and even friendships.

And it is with great pleasure that I’m now helping organize the 3rd International Slovenian MoodleMoot, which will take place on May 22nd in the lovely and sunny coastal city of Koper, Slovenia (my birth place!). I would like to invite you all to attend our Moot and present your experience with Moodle; and if you can’t make the trip to Koper, you can even present remotely via Skype. If you’d like to learn more about our MoodleMoot, see the official Call for International Presentations.

In case the timing of our conference isn’t right for you, I’d also like to encourage you to take a look at the list of other MoodleMoots that are being organized all over the world. So far I was only able to attend the Austrian Moot once, but I sure hope I get the chance to visit others as well! Moodlers are usually a really great crowd, and I’m already looking forward to seeing some great practical uses of Moodle and related tools at our Moot. I hope to see you there too! :)

P.S.: Speaking of great conferences… don’t miss The Virtual World Best Practices in Education (VWBPE) conference this weekend (March 27-29) - it’s a free conference taking place in the virtual world of Second Life.
