A Moodlemoot is a conference dedicated to the users, developers and administrators of the popular open-source Learning Management System (LMS) Moodle. This year’s Australian Moodlemoot will provide delegates with the opportunity to share, learn, collaborate and network with others within the Moodle community, or may also serve as a valuable evaluation opportunity for those considering moving to Moodle from their existing LMS.
