MoodleMoot Africa 2018

MoodleMoot conferences are held around the world, with a focus on encouraging collaboration and sharing of best practices of the open source learning platform. MoodleMoots started when the global Moodle community saw a need to come together and share their experiences with the open source platform – what they have learnt, what works and what doesn’t – so others can learn from those experiences to enhance and improve their Moodle sites. The first MoodleMoot Africa 2018 will be held in Cape Town and Moodle HQ invites all Moodlers in Africa to join us for two days of sharing, learning and collaborating so that we can empower more educators to improve our world with our open source learning platform!

Start date: 11 October 2018
End date: 12 October 2018
