TEEMA is a global staffing organization which required a learning system for onboarding new associates.

Some recent editing projects
I’ve acted as “Technical Editor” for Packt on four Moodle publications. Tech editor tests and verifies the author’s processes and tools. Published in August 2018, Moodle Course Design Best Practices: Design and development, 2nd edition is a valuable update due to the major changes we saw in 3.2 through 3.5. A must read for the periodic Moodle course creator. Both of these earlier books are well written but I have to recommend the Gamification for anyone interested in learning how to apply game theory within a Moodle course.

Moot by Glass
I had the pleasure of joining a diverse group of Moodlers at Moodlemoot Baltimore 2013. The Moot took place over 2 days and 3 nights at Loyola University Maryland. The Moot sessions were excellent, but it is the people I go for and there was no lack of brilliance or diversity this week. Here are a few of the over 200 photos I took with Google Glass. The gallery is here and will be added to over the coming days. Please feel free to download and share the pics.
Since Tuesday, I’ve been attending the International iMoot and I’m quite amazed at how much I’ve learned. What is an iMoot you ask? Moodle (open source learning management system) conferences are call Moodle Moots. An iMoot is a virtual, online conference that runs 24 hours a day with keynotes and presentations by users and experts from all around the globe. There are also forums and the live presentations include a lively chat. So I’ve watched sessions in the middle of the day and a couple at 3 am and 5 am.
