  • Easy collection of digital artifacts and submitting for grading using tablets and phones

Moodle -

Jeff Chan, our friend from Open School BC will be on hand with iCampus21 folks to talk Moodle course design and Moodle site administration with you.

Come drop by anytime to experience Moodle. Check out http://moodleyoga.com for all demonstrations and learn some yoga in Moodle. Join our hourly live streams between 11 and 3 on Monday for Yoga poses, live tips, interviews etc at our conference Moodle at http://moodleyoga.com or come in person at our booth.

No doubt, many attendees will have working experience with Moodle - be it in their own university studies or in their past and present teaching assignments. Nevertheless, there are many cool new and interesting things one can do with Moodle.

The playground is designed to let you play and discover while expert Moodle geeks (and yogis too!) are on hand. Some things you will be able to experience:
  • Join us for hourly tips and tricks for infusing a little more zen into your day - specifically geared for the stressed and overworked online educator
  • Collect tokens for all sessions and enter to win a price
  • Easy collection of digital artifacts and submitting for grading using tablets and phones
  • Accelerate your grading using digital pens
  • Watch what's going on in a Moodle server at the backend
  • Have fun playing with various course formats
  • Take any plugin for a spin - if it breaks our demo site - no worries!
  • Simple techniques to improve the look and feel of your courses
  • See some examples of what can be done when pulling data from Moodle and bringing it into simple custom applications
