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.
After booking the featured presenters and wrapping up our session selection process, we are more excited than ever about MountainMoot 2014! We currently have over 35 conference sessions booked for July 10 & 11, plus ten half-day trainings on July 9. We have already filled over 50 of 90 spots for the July 9 trainings, so sign up today. to make sure you get in to these immersive hands-on events.
Now for some big Moodle news: our featured presenter, Julian Ridden (AKA MoodleMan), has announced that he is going to begin working for Instructure (Canvas) this year. As part of his announcement, Julian mentioned that MountainMoot 2014 is going to be his last Moodle Moot. We are honored to be seeing this Moodle legend off to his new adventures in online learning. If you aren’t familiar with MoodleMan, take a look at his blog here. You’ll find that Julian’s expertise extends far beyond basic Moodle setup, management, and use. We are excited that we get to learn from Julian one last time!
Other confirmed presenters include Michelle Moore, Jonathan Moore, Randy Thornton, and Floyd Saner. Read more about their amazing careers at our presenters page. Also, look for our second round of amazing speakers to be posted in Mid April.
We are also pleased to announce that both the MountainMoot Moodle and our Wednesday night reception will be hosted by Moonami. This low-cost, low-hassle, ultra-responsive company will literally create and host a Moodle for you in minutes. We were so impressed with their service, we decided that they would be a perfect match for the MountainMoot. Come meet their staff on Wednesday night at the BrewHouse!
As exciting as this is, we are only getting started. We have many more presenters and social events to announce. We might even have an ace up our sleeve. Stay tuned…
So come on and join us in beautiful Helena, MT for the 4th annual MountainMoot. You won’t be disappointed.
