What is iMoot?
iMoot is an annual event where the Moodle community, practitioners, administrators and decision makers meet to share the best practice in online learning.
iMoot15 - Everyone Matters
The theme for this year's iMoot is "Everyone matters!”
In our globalised world we see every day that successful solutions are those that include the contributions of all affected parties.
We want this year's iMoot to be inclusive and open for participants from all kinds of backgrounds; be it trainer, teacher, administrator, developer or learners that want to share their Moodle stories.
We are aiming for anyone to participate in the iMoot that wants to, no matter their socioeconomic standing, age, ability, or the devices they use, because we know that successful Moodle use needs everybody.
What does iMoot15's theme mean for presentations? We are looking for submissions on how you are addressing that "Everyone matters!” in your use of Moodle.
Examples of this could be:
Case studies of Moodle use, highlighting how Moodle brought together people from diverse backgrounds to make learning happen.
Presentations of themes and plug-ins that enable users with diverse needs to interact through Moodle to advance learning.
Presentations of strategies for using Moodle to ensure that everyone in a learner group can contribute to make learning more efficient and fun.
Perhaps you are using Moodle with a very large group of people or you have run a MOOC where you have used novel concepts to ensure that as many learner voices as possible matter, and are contributing to overall learning success.
All presenters at iMoot receive free access to the entire event.
Being inclusive, we welcome submissions in other languages than English. Let's make this year's iMoot a celebration of our diversity!
Additionally, if you are in a position where you are able to help sponsor the iMoot, or pay for someone else to attend, we would love to hear from you.
