Join Us for MoodleMoot New Orleans at BbWorld this July

Hi Folks,

In case you didn’t see, Moodle HQ has announced that we will be hosting the first MoodleMoot at BbWorld this July 25-27 in New Orleans!


With BbWorld and a MoodleMoot held in tandem, we can bring two of the largest edtech communities together. The best part is that attendees need only purchase one registration to access both conferences. After all, BbWorld isn’t just about Blackboard software, it’s easily one of the largest gatherings of like-minded education professionals focused on addressing challenges in teaching and learning across the world.


For instance, you can see Martin Dougiamas’ keynote and enjoy the Moot’s tight-knit, Moodle-focused session before branching out to enjoy a wider variety of BbWorld sessions and activities, such as a keynote by educator and former Second Lady, Dr. Jill Biden.


Of course, with any Moot, there will be a full agenda of peer-led presentations, but that can’t happen without your input! The Moot call for proposals is open now until May 8th. Our friends at Moodle HQ will be selecting the sessions, but if you’re looking for more information on how to submit, please visit our Moot page on BbWorld.com. You can also reach out to mootus@moodle.com or brad.schleicher@blackboard.com with any questions. Anyone that submits a presentation that is selected for the Moot gets an additional $200 off the discounted speaker rate.


Thanks and we hope to see you there!

VP, Teaching and Learning
