What the Moodle community got up to at #MootUS20

On October 6-8, we hosted MoodleMoot US 2020 online, where over 450 educators, learning technologists and developers from the Moodle community and beyond shared good practices and strategies to create greater distance learning experiences with Moodle.

Our events team created an online venue, entirely built on Moodle Workplace, to provide delegates with dedicated areas to attend presentations, visit sponsors, interact with other delegates and build connections with each other.

It’s great to be able to get the Moodle community together even if it’s virtually, and to see old friends and new faces, experienced Moodlers welcoming new ones, sharing experiences and working together to improve eLearning” Diego Fabra, Global Events Manager at Moodle HQ.

 

Creating great distance learning experiences

Over the 3 days of #MootUS20, teachers and trainers from universities, K-12 schools and businesses explained and demonstrated how they’re using Moodle and Moodle Workplace to support their teaching and learning processes.

Educators, developers and Moodle Partners also shared tips and innovative ways in which they’re using Moodle in their classrooms or their organisations.

 

The latest new from Moodle HQ

Our team at Moodle HQ also joined the event from the US, Europe and Australia and shared exciting news with the Moodle community about some of our projects and products:

 

Sharing the fun with the Moodle Community

Getting to meet our Moodle community and fostering relationships and collaboration between educators, developers and organisations to improve how we all use Moodle is always one of our main goals at MoodleMoots. So for #MootUS20, we set up a virtual café for Moodlers to chat to each other and organise meetings and network, and an online Quiz night where we all had fun together.


At Moodle, we’ll keep striving to bring our community together to collaborate and make the Moodle LMS an even better platform to support teaching and learning for millions of people worldwide. We’re already looking into ways of making our online Moots even bigger and better and make them into a unique experience.” – Diego Fabra
