July 9-11, 2014 - Helena, Montana
When we created the Mountain Moot, we wanted to build a positive, comfortable, and engaging atmosphere where Moodlers of all abilities and interests could come together to improve their application of the world’s leading open-source course management system. Four years on, it’s looking like we succeeded.
In fact, we’ve had more success than we ever anticipated. The list of presenters and speakers now includes the biggest names in Moodle; people like Martin Dougiamas, Mary Cooch (A.K.A. MoodleFairy), Anthony Borrow, Randy Thornton, Floyd Saner, Michelle Moore, Helen Foster, Tim Hunt and many others. According to almost everyone who has attended a MountainMoot, we’re on to something good.
Though affordable, enjoyable, and productive conference sessions certainly form the core attraction of the MountainMoot, our attendees tell us that their favorite part of the conference is the sense of community they feel. Not only do we collaborate to improve our use of Moodle, we also schedule hikes, attend live music, have group meals, and throw parties. The informal opportunites at this moot are vaired and many. Attendees choosing to stay in Trinity Hall also experience a college-like dorm atmosphere with their fellow attendees and presenters. We frequently hear of impromptu sessions breaking out in the dorms after hours.
It’s this atmosphere that makes the MountainMoot so special. Not only do attendees get the standard conference sessions and support, but they also get to build personal relationships with Moodle experts from around the world, so they have a network to rely on when they need help.
So come on and join us in beautiful Helena, MT for the 4th annual MountainMoot. You won’t be disappointed.
