iMoot, the online LMS conference has been around for awhile, and is sponsored by my company Pukunui Technology. That said, while it would be easy to call it a Pukunui Event, iMoot has welcomed speakers from all corners of the LMS world – literally. Since the event runs around the clock, they look for speakers from around the world, and it looks like for this event we’ll have speakers in five continents.
This event is the Mini iMoot, which runs typically in the Northern Autumn/Southern Spring, runs for 24 hours. The 2016 one run from 9am (Sydney time) November 4th for 24 hours. The main iMoot is a 48 hour conference and it’s usually held 6 months from now in the Northern Spring/Southern Autumn. If all these time zones are confusing, I always use TimeAndDate.com to sort out my UTC+10s.
I’m very glad to see some of my Moodle friends around the world have signed up to present including;
- Julian Davis, a good mate, on learning analytics
- Kim Salinas from Elearning Experts on the MCCC
- Gareth Barnard on User Interface
- Sharon Lehman, a TAFE NSW colleague of mine, on H5P
- Tish Kirkland, a good friend, on her online EFL teaching experiences
- Sean Marx on the Atto editor
And I think possibly my friend Ravi Murugesan, whom I’m always (teasingly) asking when the next MoodleMoot India will be, might be added to the schedule. And of course, Sarah Ashley has a very cool looking presentation on the Database activity – which I underutilise, so I’m looking forward to it. I’m just a little scared of Sarah because I promised to make a screencast of something cool you can do in Moodle and that was like a month ago. I’m still working on it Sarah, don’t give up hope in me.
This is not the complete list, by any means, and I’m looking forward to meeting Jerome, Andy, Donald, anyone else who gets added to the schedule, and of course my fellow keynoter Thomas Bell.
Mini iMoot 16 looks like it’s going to be great, and I think it’s good value for money. If you a Moodler or an e-Educator, I think you should join us on November 4th.
