MoodleMoot Francophone 2018, the Moot of the French-speaking Moodle community organized by the association, gathered more than 500 delegates from Europe and North Africa in Brussels last month.

The 3-day event, hosted by Université catholique de Louvain, focused on three main topics:

  • how Moodle affects the learner/teacher relationship
  • how Moodle can develop the learners’ creativity, critical thinking and engagement as citizens
  • Moodle as an open tool to share knowledge and skills.

Delegates had the chance to attend presentations, demos, workshops and get the latest updates from some Moodle Partners – Edunao and Enovation.

During MootFR18, on July 5th, our CEO and Founder Martin Dougiamas was awarded the title of Doctor Honoris Causa by the Université catholique de Louvain, in a ceremony where he said that the award belonged to the whole Moodle community and everyone who is contributing to the project.

In words of one of the Moot organizers, Philippe Neyt, the Moot was an “exceptional human experience and a unique team-building activity”, where the French-speaking Moodlers shared experiences, tips and knowledge, learnt from each other and also had a lot of fun together in a lively and collaborative environment.


Some highlights of MootFR18 were:

  • a collaborative surprise presentation where delegates had to resolve an escape game
  • a custom-made beer for the Moot, MoodleMousse
  • the presentation of the MoodleBox project
  • the fun Gala Dinner at beautiful Halles Saint-Géry

At the end of the Moot, the association announced the location of MoodleMoot Francophone 2019: the French city of Rennes! You can follow them on twitter at @mootfr19 and keep tuned here for more information.
