Global eLearning Conference MootGlobal Barcelona 2022 Rewind

Global eLearning Conference

As the Global eLearning Conference, MootGlobal 2022 comes to a close, as things have simmered, it’s a good time to look back at the events that developed.

It was an event that housed Moodlers and eLearning enthusiasts with a similar goal: to advance eLearning in their way. There were over 800 delegates from 60 countries that presented a whopping 124 presentations and 24 sponsors, exceeding predictions. Martin Dougiamas, CEO of Moodle, described this event as one of the largest and best Moots so far.

Day 1 Highlights​

Martin Dougiamas, the CEO and founder of Moodle, gave the opening keynote address of the day. However, Martin gave a different keynote this time around compared to previous Moots. He talked about how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can change education and the importance of embracing new technologies such as AI in education.

Right after, the Moodle community was commemorated in a group photo! All 840 Moodlers in one picture.

Moodle site management and integrations, Accessibility, and UX Supporting an international and diverse community Using Moodle in unique and unexpected ways and Integrations / Healthcare, Learner-centred education: empowering learners and teachers, and Testing were just a few from the plethora of topics that were brought up in the fascinating talks and workshops that took place day 1. 

To top it all off, cookies were arranged around the Moodle “M” around midday, with a cake in the center, to commemorate Moodle’s 20th anniversary! Cake and 840 wishes are the best way to say “Happy Birthday”!

Day 2 Highlight​

The second day started off with a banger as Andreia Inamorato, an international researcher, lecturer, public speaker, and consultant in digital education, educational technologies, and open education was the keynote speaker for the day delivering a talk on ‘Educating for the future: the transformative power of openness’.

Performing brain surgery on the beating heart of Moodle and Adapting course formats to 4.0 were great workshops to pique everyone’s interest first thing in the morning. Following that were workshops on Integrating Mobile apps with Moodle and how it can improve your teaching. Moodle founder and CEO, Martin Dougiamas himself presented on the topic of Moodle NextGen as an Open Edtech component before the next segment covering Moodle of the Future, Moodle site management, and Analytics started.

We felt privileged to have had the chance to present at the Global eLearning Conference 2022 alongside such incredible people who are well-known in the industry. Along with a host of other esteemed presenters, Sam Suresh showed how Mobile Apps can be used for learning.

Day 2 also featured two competitions, the winners of which would receive a ticket to the 2023 MoodleMoot. To join the first competition, you had to tweet a photo of your goofy socks using the hashtags #MootGlobal22 and #sillysocks. The pair of socks with the most absurd and inventive design would be declared the winner.

The second task took place that evening at the Moot party, a costume party with a “time travel” theme. Tickets to MoodleMoot 2023 would be awarded to the best-dressed contestant. The party featured a tonne of creative costumes because Moodlers know how to party!

On the final day of the conference, a gripping conversation was had on what the future holds for Learning Management Systems during a panel discussion hosted by Shalimar Anderson, a representative from Moodle US and a keynote speaker.

Following this were talks on MoodleNet/MoodleApps, Moodle site management and integrations, Accessibility and Inclusion, and a Moodle Products Workshop. Topping it off, the Founder and CEO of Moodle, Martin Dougiamas held a closing session to mark the end of the event.

Sam Suresh from MU DOT MY PLT also presented a Workshop on 3rd day. This was our second presentation at the world’s largest eLearning conference.
