Moodlemoot New Orleans #MootUSLA13 Day one and Martin

First morning with a great group of educators and techs. Pics will come later. #MootUSLA13 #moodle  Martin’s opening Keynote dove into some awesome futures but he mostly focused on areas and sites that are little known or used.  First I want to recognize the incredible folks who make events like this a pleasure to attend. Thank you Moodleroomers

Heard Martin discuss this at moot and I highly recommend for anyone teaching with Moodle.  Heck, it’s free.

Moot by Glass

I had the pleasure of joining a diverse group of Moodlers at Moodlemoot Baltimore 2013.  The Moot took place over 2 days and 3 nights at Loyola University Maryland.

The Moot sessions were excellent, but it is the people I go for and there was no lack of brilliance or diversity this week.  Here are a few of the over 200 photos I took with Google Glass.  The gallery is here and will be added to over the coming days.  Please feel free to download and share the pics.

iMoot 2013

Since Tuesday, I’ve been attending the International iMoot and I’m quite amazed at how much I’ve learned.  What is an iMoot you ask?

Moodle (open source learning management system) conferences are call Moodle Moots.  An iMoot is a virtual, online conference that runs 24 hours a day with keynotes and presentations by users and experts from all around the globe.  There are also forums and the live presentations include a lively chat.  So I’ve watched sessions in the middle of the day and a couple at 3 am and 5 am.  I could see the recordings later on but the chat is truly incredible and I love to converse with those who have similar interests to mine.

I wish others such as Autodesk would look at this sort of conferencing to supplement the annual AU.  http://2013.imoot.oeg
