Moodle integration with SIS as a foundation for a paperless university as developed at Divine Word University, Papua New Guinea.

The University quest for excellence in innovative teaching and learning is supported by the Centre for Learning and Teaching.

Christian Zange
think modular - digital solutions GmbH
Based on real-world examples from large organisations, we share how to integrate Moodle with Drupal to greatly enhance the functionality for training promotion (flexible course catalogs, learning portal), training administration (training/course life cycle, course enrollment processes (nomination, per application, self-enrollment or automated by role or location) and reporting (based on training record log).
11:50 AMThe Akademia story: Moodle in the middle

Elzette le Roux
Akademia (NPO)
Accessibility to and affordability of quality higher education – especially education in one's mother tongue – are legitimate obstacles to most South Africans. These perceived obstacles are the very catalysts that inspired Akademia’s unique teaching model. Akademia, a non-profit private higher education institution, makes use of Moodle as an integral part of a unique high technology model in order to overcome such obstacles. Placing Moodle in the middle between student and educator provided the ideal opportunity for establishing a community university that makes open, quality, collaborative and accessible distance education possible.
12:10 PMPushing the Moodle Boundaries for Creative Online Company Solutions.

Lelanie Judeel
BlueRooster
I have worked on many Learner Management Systems, from the most expensive to the free, and especially the ones that over promise and under deliver. Yet Moodle seems to never disappoint and offer endless possibility, and I tend to now associate the words “everything is possible” with Moodle. I would like to share case studies on how to push the boundaries and share how Moodle can be utilised creatively in the following settings: 1) CPD for Health Professionals, 2) Online and Offline in the Mining industry, 3) Cyber Awareness, 4) Competency Frameworks & Learning Plans.
