Moodle Hack/Doc Fest: January 2010

Moodle Hack/Doc Fest V will be held January 5-7, 2010 at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa. The event will feature programmers and instructional technologists coming together to improve Moodle. We expect to continue work on CLAMP’s Moodle: Liberal Arts Edition project, fix outstanding Moodle bugs, and craft new training materials. We also hope to test drive Moodle 2.0, which is scheduled for a beta release at the end of 2009.

Attending Hack Doc Fest: Moodle Hack/Doc Fest is a free event. However with this Hack/Doc, CLAMP returns to its “pay your own way” funding model. Attendees will need to pay for their own transportation, lodging, and dinner.

Virtual Attendance: In addition to the conventional Hack/Doc Fest, we’re planning on coordinating a virtual component to Hack/Doc Fest that will allow people to participate from their own campuses. We will be using Google Wave (along with Redmine and Elluminate) to coordinate this participation. You can request a Google Wave invitation as part of your registration.
