Requested Presentations/Workshops for MoodleMoot 2013

Besides the open vetting of proposals submitted freely by members, we often request/solicit some presentations each year to fulfill training needs at the conference.

This year we will need a variety of training workshops for teachers. But how about for administrators and engineers?  Last year we had very few.  This year I am planning to fund our server engineer, Mr. Haruyuki Harada, former Featured Speaker at the MoodleMoot Hakodate to come to the MoodleMoot 2013 in Tokyo. Mr. Harada is also the server engineer of the MAJ Server, and soon to be launched MAJ Hub Server.

He said that he would do any requested presentation or workshop, and asked that we get him those suggestions.  If we could make a few proposed titles before Wednesday, Oct 31, the proposal deadline, that would be helpful. He is prepared to present bilingually, though I think most topics should be in Japanese.

Here are some suggestions I have:

  • Moodle Server Setup and Maintanance: Beginners Orientation
  • Moodle Server Setup and Maintanance: Advanced Techniques
  • Managing Student Assistants for Course Setup and Administration
  • Massive Testing: How to Manage your Site for up to 1000 Simultaneous Users
  • Server Hardware and Software

Hi,

I already got commitments from Attain and Human Science (MAJ associate members)  to take care of some hands-on/workshop sessions. They have skillfull instructors on their business. If you make an official request, they will coordinate some sessions based on their deep knowledge and practical  experience.

Hi Toshimi,

That is wonderful to hear two MAJ Associate Members will help with workshops. What topics will they teach?  If you have not asked them a specific then maybe other officers can recommend the topics they should cover. Will they cover server engineering and adminstration?

What topics should we ask Harada san to present on? He would like to write proposals by next Tuesday.

Hi, I have never posted here before but I've been using Moodle for several years. I just wanted to say that I'd be very interested in server engineering and adminstration presentations (if you're looking for feedback on that suggestion 笑顔

I'm interested in 1) Moodle Server Setup and Maintanance: Beginners Orientation

2) Server Hardware and Software (if it’s not too advanced, I know nothing about servers now).

I'd also be interested in anything related to administration of a Moodle site. I've been the admin of our site for a while now but still have a lot to learn.

Thank you! This will be my first on-site Moodle Moot (I went to an online Moot earlier this year), and I'm really looking forward to it!

Cheers, Jennifer

Hi Jennifer.

Thanks for your suggestion for the course of moodle administration.

Our company has instructed the networking and server for many years.

But I didn't make the detail of the seminar in this moot, your post gave me an interesting hint.

hope to seeing you in the moot.笑顔

Hi Takeshi,

Thank you for your quick reply. I'd love to meet up with you at the Moot. I'm at the stage of being capable with the basics of Moodle (but not yet entirely up to speed with Moodle 2.5, our current version) but very curious about just about everything Moodle can do. It takes so much time to learn it all. I'm doing research using Moodle (I'm doing a research project now with a sister class in Canada) and may be using Moodle in my Ph.D. dissertation research project, coming up next year. I'm very interested in the constructivist and constructionist aspects of Moodle too, in addition to all the practical applications. Well, I guess that covers it all! I'll look for you at the Moot. I think we will have lots to talk about! 笑顔 Cheers, Jennifer

I think that we also need to take care of new users and recruit people for workshops on topics such as

"Setting up and managing a course"

"Ways to use Moodle to get class feedback"

"Creating and managing quizzes"

"Using the new assignment module"

Others?

Ideally there should be either two concurrent workshops on each topic, one in English and one in Japanese, or one with a bilingual facilitator.

I agree with Tom. I think beginners are looking for basics of the different modules. I gave a presentation on  the database module last year and several people mentioned that they wanted others on the lesson module, online activity, and others. They also mentioned that they wish some of the basic presentations could be done twice just in case there was another presentation that they wanted to see at the same time.

Sorry for late reply. 

I was asked from instructors about what topics would be desired from audience. So I am asking them to post the topics they could teach in Moot workshop at once.  

So could you organize and coodinate the series of workshop titles with insuturctors?

- to avoid duplicated themes
- to coordinate well balanced levels (basic, intermidiate, advanced)
- to cover variaty of topics (course creation, block/activity development, theme design etc...)

One more important thing is language. The instuctors who I recruited are all Japanese speakers. Probably it is impossible to deliver workshop in English. 

 Do you want to have workshops in both English and Japanese, or English only?

>> So could you organize and coordinate the series of workshop titles with instructors?

Please contact Eric Hagley.  He is the MAJ Training Director, who coordinates these workshops. You can write to him in Japanese at <hagley at mmm.muroran-it.ac.jp>.

But still you should submit your proposals today or tomorrow of what you can do.  Eric will look through all of the proposals and coordinate. In the past, we had some workshops for Japanese-only speakers, and some workshops for English-only speakers. So your plan to have Japanese-speakers is good.

Yes, surely they will submit their proposals for workshop until tomorrow. I confirmed.
In case I will contact Eric-san. 

Thank you for suggestions! I hope we had many fruitful workshops 笑顔
