In the run up to our unmissable 'Success with eLearning' seminar on 7th June, we will be featuring more information on our speakers and their background, as well as a snippet into what they will be talking about at the event, and why you won't want to miss it!

This week, we would like to introduce Gavin Henrick from Moodle HQ.

About Gavin and Moodle:Gavin-Moodle

Gavin, Community Projects Manager at Moodle HQ, has worked with Moodle and other open sources systems since 2007. Initially with a number of Moodle Partners and lately with Learning Technology solutions, Gavin supported businesses consulting on learning development strategies and gamification of their online learning delivery. He regularly blogs, has co-authored three books on Moodle and regularly speaks at conferences about blended learning, Moodle and gamification of learning.

Moodle is a learning platform designed to provide educators, administrators and learners with a single robust, secure and integrated system to create personalised learning environments. Moodle is a community-based open source project that provides organisations an alternative to commercial or subscription based system. It is built by the Moodle project which is coordinated by Moodle HQ in Australia, and supported by the network of over 60 Moodle Partners worldwide.

When you use Moodle you are part of a global community, and can take an active part in supporting the community through a number of ways - Moodle Partners, direct donations and the Moodle user association. Moodle HQ in Australia is financially supported by a network of Moodle Partners, where partners support the development and maintenance of Moodle through royalties on the services the charge. When you hire a Moodle Partner you directly contribute to the project (e.g. if you purchase a theme from HowToMoodle, some of that fee goes back to help sustain Moodle).

Why you won't want to miss this presentation:

Gavin will draw from his years of experience in working with Moodle to deliver his presentation on the following:

"What makes Moodle successful - With key considerations to make your site a success"

Being a truely open source project, Moodle gives organisations the freedom to develop code or get their partner to develop innovations within the platform. This gives the organisation the chance to bend Moodle to their needs and lets them focus on building online learning courses.

Moodle is used by so many different organisations around the world, that when they contribute code and features back into the Moodle Community - Moodle grows stronger providing users more options either directly in core or through the plugin database.

Moodle comes with a powerful toolkit of features to provide the building blocks of how you can deliver effective and efficient online and blended learning.  This session will look at some of those areas that provide immediate benefits including:

  • The learner journey
  • Moodle on the Mobile
  • Learning analytics

With a planned rollout and implementation of various techniques and features, you can increase the effectiveness of your learning delivery - online and on the go.
