Project Suggestions for Moodle Hack/Doc Fest: Summer 2012

Moodle Hack/Doc Fest at Kalamazoo College is a month away and we’re looking for suggestions for bug fixes, documentation and new features for Moodle that the community would like us to address. You can add your requests by making a comment on this blog post. You don’t have to be attending Hack/Doc Fest to make suggestions — we’d like suggestions from the entire community.

We expect to work on the following:

  • Evaluation and testing of Moodle 2.3
  • Bug fixes and feature enhancements for inclusion in Moodle: Liberal Arts Edition 2.3
  • LAE Grader for Moodle 2.3

Call for Presentations at Moodle Hack/Doc Fest, Summer 2012

A staple of recent Moodle Hack/Doc Fests have been informal, 30-minute long presentations given by attendees. At the Summer 2012 event at Hack/Doc we’re going to make these a bit more formal by giving them a sit time — during lunch on each day of Hack/Doc — and streaming the presentations to the folks attending virtually.

The schedule for presentations is:

  • 12:00-12:30 p.m., Tuesday, 6/12
  • 12:30-1:00 p.m., Tuesday, 6/12
  • 12:00-12:30 p.m., Wednesday, 6/13
  • 12:30-1:00 p.m., Wednesday, 6/13
  • 12:00-12:30 p.m., Thursday, 6/14
  • 12:30-1:00 p.m., Thursday, 6/14

In the past we’ve had presentations on Carleton College’s Language Lesson module, Reed College’s eReserves system, Luther College’s Google integration, and Eckard College’s IPAL web-based clickers. We’ll kick off this summer’s presentations on Tuesday with an update on Moodle 2.3.

If you’re interested in presenting at Hack/Doc Fest, please add a comment to this post.
