Have you attended a Moodle Moot before?

Various team members at Hubble Studios have attended Moodle Moots, but this is our first year sponsoring. We’re excited!

What is the title of your presentations at this year’s Moot?

We have a few presentations this year:

Supporting your Moodle platform

Web content accessibility: Designing and developing for inclusivity

Leadership beyond the C-suite

Understanding learning design in context of the whole learning journey

Give us a brief description of what to look forward to.

As a problem-led organisation, we work with a range of diverse clients across a number of contexts, and our talks distil our best learnings from these experiences to be shared with you.

Why have you chosen to present this topic?

All four topics are relevant to those trying to roll out online education at the moment. Moodle is an incredibly powerful learning platform, and it’s important to understand the operational and human realities in rolling it out as a system across a large number of users and to know how to measure success when you do so.

From an accessibility perspective, with so much learning moving online, it’s more important than ever to ensure equitable access for learners. We want to make it easier for educators to design inclusive online learning experiences and for learners to access quality online education.

Share with us one tool or technique you or your client implemented while using Moodle which has benefited you and your organization!

We’ve worked closely with an online university over several years to extend their Moodle instance to manage very complex learner journeys, from enrolment to graduation. We have built unique functionality to bring more sophistication to how they manage and progress multiple cohorts across the phases of their master’s-level degree programme. This involved developing several large custom plugins that touched just about every major aspect of the LMS.
