Moot

I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the 2011 US West Coast Moodle Moot in Rohnert Park, California this past week. What an incredible conference! Being my first Moot, I was extremely impressed with not only the technical sessions but how everything tied back to the learning process. It really was about learning, not technology. I will try and go again for sure!


Most impressionable session: David Wiley, Associate Professor of Instructional Psychology and Technology at Brigham Young University. His key ideas focused around openness (OER), analytics (assessment data and behavioral), and the LMS.


Other presentations from the Moot can be found here.
Here is a fabulous collaborative Google Doc of the conference also. 
The Moot Ning was also interesting, although I didn't participate much on it.
