MoodleMoot 2014 Social learning in practise

Everybody is talking about social learning, whether informal, non-formal, structured or free. Moodle was originally created to support all kinds of social learning. The combination of Moodle with social learning is golden, we thought, so this is our focus for the Dutch Moot on June 12 in Utrecht. Does social learning spark your attention and are you curious what you can do with a wonderful LMS like Moodle, come to our Moot!

I am very happy to have Matt Bury, all the way from Canada, to introduce the topic of “social presence”, an important condition for making social learning work. A short interview to hear what he will do on the 12th.

Although MoodleMooters are familiar with blended learning you do not see much of it around a Moot. Would they be willing to “learn social”?

Matt and I set up a small number of learning activities in which participants can be socially present and explore the theme together. Will we see a lot of activity? Whatever the outcome, it will give us food for discussion.

Here you see a screencast of the section in our Moodle course with a clarification of the activities we will hope to see people take part in.

Do you want to experience social learning with Moodle and do this stuff yourself? Participation is not very expensive. As a non-profit society with sponsors, we can keep our entrance fee very low: only € 25,00 as a member and € 50,00 for non-members.
