“Moodle-Mahara Meetup” will be held in Adelaide on 8 May 2013 at the Rydges SouthPark.

“Moodle-Mahara Meetup” will showcase the use of the open source software systems Moodle learning management system and Mahara eportfolio system in vocational and workplace education and training.

Keynote presentations and case studies through posters, short presentations and workshop break-out sessions will enable a variety of perspectives to be shared.

“Moodle-Mahara Meetup” aims to attract educators, educational designers, and learning and development managers interested in lowering the barriers to online learning through better integration of Moodle and Mahara from:

  • Vocational education and training (VET)
  • VET in Schools
  • Adult and community education (ACE)
  • Workplace integrated learning (WIL)
  • Continuing professional development (CPD), and
  • Industry and Professional Associations.

“Moodle-Mahara Meetup” is as not-for-profit event which will raise the profile of the connection between Moodle and Mahara, also known as Mahoodle.

Mahoodle is the name given to the technical relationship which allows users of Moodle and Mahara a single sign-on or log-in when using both systems.  Mahoodle also enables the transfer of content between the two systems, providing a better and more integrated learning experience.

Other technical integrations which support online learning through Moodle and Mahara, such as Google Apps, and using mobile devices for accessing and uploading of information, will also be showcased.

Call for proposals to present or to facilitate a workshop will be announced early in 2013. Registrations to attend this event will open shortly thereafter.
