MoodleMoot Francophone 2018, the Moot of the French-speaking Moodle community organized by the Moodlemoot.fr 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.
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.
It was such a tremendous personal honour to receive the Doctor Honoris Causa from UCL today for my work on Moodle, but as I said in my acceptance speech, it is really for all Moodlers ❤ #mootfr18 pic.twitter.com/HczkgncVgA

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
