Melbourne Moodle Users Group

The Melbourne Moodle Users Group (MMUG) met last night at CLB Training & Development in Dorcas St, South Melbourne. This was the first of a series of face-to-face meetings for 2013. Each alternate month, the meeting will be held as an online webinar. Graham Clark, MMUG coordinator, facilitated the meeting. There was an opportunity for the 18 attendees to get to know each other and share with the group their interest in Moodle and current involvement with it. Some attendees were “power users” with years of experience and current high-level roles in corporations and educational establishments. Others were beginners, investigating Moodle for personal interest or their own work places moving towards Moodle implementation. Graham opened the floor for anyone to present areas of their own interest to the group, and a number of interesting demonstrations and discussions ensued around Moodle functionality. Graham then gave an overview of conditional activities, how to set them up and their pedagogical application. Graham continued by showing some of his recent work as a Moodle professional and instructional designer using Articulate Storyline. It was a very positive and enriching evening, with demonstrations of long-established courses as well as discussions around Moodle implementation for beginners. Thanks to Graham for facilitation of MMUG and for making this opportunity openly available to Moodle aficionados in the e-learning community.

A personal ‘thank you’ from Graham to all who attended the MMUG evening event:

I’d like to thank the 17 people who came along to last night’s Melbourne Moodle Users Group (MMUG) face-to-face Moodle Monday at CLB Training and Development in South Melbourne. By all accounts, it was a great success with several people coming forward to showcase their various projects.

In particular, I’d like to thank Fiona Blair from NMIT for showing us a real-world example of the use of conditional activities in Moodle and +Katharine Ebbs from the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM) for showing us some of the wonderful things ACEM are doing with their Moodle.

I’d also like to thank +David Isaacson from CLB for showing us his work in Adobe Captivate and Moodle. I look forward to our next Moodle Monday on Monday 18 March at 6.30pm in the virtual classroom.
