Tuesday, 11th May brought the second day of the 2021 UK & Ireland Moodlemoot.

MootIEUK21 was hosted “in the cloud” using a combination of our Moodle site, Zoom Webinar, Congregate Live and Telegram to facilitate online access, live sessions and interactive networking.

Almost all presentations at MootIEUK21 were performed and recorded live via Zoom Webinar. Attendees gained access to the live webinar sessions through a singular Zoom room link for each day.

Please note: all sessions from MootIEUK were recorded and can be accessed on the site by those who have a registered email.


Day 2 kicked off with a panel discussion on ‘The Future of Online Learning’ With Mark Manning, Alistair Spark, Tim Hunt, Marcus Green and Gavin Henrick.

The closing panel discussed Accessibility, with Gavin Henrick (Brickfield Labs), Suzanne Stone (DCU), Laia J. Conet, Trevor Boland (AHEAD UDL), Jessica Bryant (My Learning Consultants) and Miranda Melcher (KCL)

Tweet from Mark Glynn @glynnmark that reads “Ability + Barrier = Disability - a simple equation for identifying accessibility issues from @ghenrick . If we don’t put the barrier in the first place we have full inclusion - accessibility for everyone #UDLchat #MootIEUK”


The developer sessions were hosted on a separate DevJam stream, across Monday and Tuesday of the moot. All DevJam session recordings are available for viewing on the Moodlemoot site.
