2021 UK & Ireland Moodlemoot: Day 3
Wednesday 12th May marked the final day of the 3 day 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.
