CLAMP will hold its first-ever Moodle User Group Meeting (MUG) from June 23 through June 24, 2014 at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota
The MUG brings together faculty, staff, students, and other Moodlers for two days of presentations and conversation around Moodle use in a liberal arts environment. Learn about what topics may be presented at the event by visiting our Call for Proposals page or submit your own proposal using our online form.
The MUG will be followed by CLAMP’s biannual Moodle Hack/Doc Fest, a three-day event where developers, instructional technologists, and others come together to work on the open source learning management system. Hack/Doc runs from Wednesday, June 25 through Friday, June 27, 2014. Learn more about Moodle Hack/Doc Fest.
The website for the event is mug.clamp-it.org. The hashtag is #mug2014
The Collaborative Liberal Arts Moodle Project (CLAMP) is launching several new committees and is looking for volunteers to serve on them. The goals of these committees are to support CLAMP’s efforts outside of our Hack/Doc Fests, help prepare our members for the jump to Moodle 2.0, and provide more opportunities to schools to participate in meaningful ways.
The four committees are:
- Development: work on bug fixes, develop existing and new functionality, and support the release of Moodle: Liberal Arts Edition.
- Documentation: Create and update generic Moodle documentation – including written, audio, and video – that can easily be adapted to individual colleges.
- Event Planning: Plan brown bag lunches, special talks, and the biannual Hack/Doc Fests.
- Next Generation: research and prepare for the next major version of Moodle; today that’s Moodle 2.0, which has major changes to blocks, modules, themes, and core code.
Here’s the schedule of upcoming committee meetings:
- Event Planning – Monday, Dec. 6, 2010 @ 2 p.m. EST
- Documentation – Wednesday, Dec. 8, 2010 @ 2 p.m. EST
- Next Generation – Thursday, Dec 9, 2010 @ 2 p.m. EST
- Development – Friday, Dec. 10, 2010 @ 2 p.m. EST
Anyone at a CLAMP school can serve on any committee; no nomination is required.
The Collaborative Liberal Arts Moodle Project uses the Redmine collaboration suite to coordinate projects, track bugs and features, and discuss upcoming projects.
On Wednesday, Dec. 1 at Noon EST, Caroline Moore of Smith College will be leading an “Introduction to Redmine” brown bag that provides an overview of its features and how we use it to support our efforts, both during the academic year and at Moodle Hack/Doc Fests.
This event will be conducted virtually in CLAMP’s Elluminate Room. The event is free, but registration is required so that we can send you the Elluminate room link.
