It seems like yesterday that we organized our first Moodle Moot in Austin, Texas. It makes it difficult to believe that we're already making plans for our second Moot, taking place in July of this Summer.
Considering the success we had last year, we wanted to keep a similar format to the sessions and presentations. However, a few things have changed this year, namely the location, the speakers and particularly, those that are helping to organize the event.
This year, Moodlerooms has partnered with California State University to organize the two-day Moodle Moot US- West Coast 2011, taking place in California's Sonoma County. Just like last year, Moodle’s founder, Martin Dougiamas, will be delivering one of the keynote addresses. The other keynote will be delivered by David Wiley, Associate Professor of Instructional Psychology and Technology at Brigham Young University and acclaimed advocate for OER (open educational resources).
This year will include a variety of presentation focuses and session tracks, so Moodle newbies, mavens and enthusiasts of any familiarity are welcome. Proposal and poster submissions are open now until February 14th, 2011. We are seeking presentation topics to fill the following tracks: Moodle in Action, Moodle Support and Governance, Moving to Moodle, Moodle Under the Hood, Moodle 2.0 and Vendor/Sponsors. Chosen presentations and speakers will be notified March 4th, 2011.
