Looking to learn more about Moodle this summer? Make networking connections? A great opportunity is at the Midwest Moodle Moot July 20-22 in Goshen, IN. I think attending a Moodle Moot this summer is a great time to go because of the release of Moodle 2.1 on June 30th. I’m actually going to the one in California in July and my main focus will be on Moodle 2.x
Here are the details
2011 Midwest Moodle Moot web site:Â http://midwestmoot.com/

Unfortunately I will not be attending as I am attending the one in California a week before. Here is a list of the Moodle Moot sessions along with the workshops list.
Check out the 2010 Midwest Moodle Moot site for information about the upcoming Moot on July 26th through the 28th. Martin Dougiamas will attend and present the keynote (awesome!).
Conference presenters will receive a 40% discount off of the early bird registration conference rate and workshop leaders will receive free conference registration plus a stipend. The deadline for proposals will be March 26th.
I would love to be able to attend a Moodle Moot and this seems like a great one to attend – it’s not too far away from me, it’s in HGH the summer and Martin will be there! I think it’d be a great experience and if I were able to put together a decent proposal and actually have it approved it would be a great work experience for me. However, the funds are not really there for me right now : ) That’s why I’m excited I can “attend” the 2010 iMoot which is a $45 fee and online!
But for those who can make it work I highly suggest taking a look at the 2010 Midwest Moodle Moot site for more information!
Just a quick reminder to register for iMoot 2010! What’s iMoot 2010, you ask?
iMoot2010 is the first time the Moot has been brought together on a gobal scale. In the past localised Moots have been held all around the world with brilliant speakers from each region. iMoot will bring them together for the first time in one event for an online e-conference with a difference. read more
I think this is an awesome Volume Pills idea especially for Moodle because it’s so global. From what I understand there will be live sessions throughout the day and they will be replayed two more times with Q & A sessions after. Obviously, Moodlers are in all different timezones so replaying the sessions will allow Moodlers to attend the sessions they want.
iMoot2010 is February 4th-7th
Registration Cost: $45
