Call for Presentations
at the 16th MoodleMoot Japan, 2024
We are looking for Moodle users who would like to talk about their Moodle experiences. We would very much like teachers, students, administrators, programmers, thinkers, and theorists... anyone who uses Moodle, to inform the MoodleMoot participants about how they use Moodle and how to use Moodle effectively. We are looking forward to submissions from all Moot participants.
Attendees are likely to consist of some experienced users, some who have been using Moodle for a year or so, and quite a few people who have never used Moodle. MoodleMoot presentations will be in both English and Japanese.
Presentations can be 20, 40 or 90 minutes in duration. Case studies are 20 minutes and lightning talks are 5-10 minutes. Click here for more information about the proposal types and abstract lengths.Please indicate your preferred proposal type and duration on the submission form. However, depending on the number of participants and presenters, you may be asked to present in a shorter time slot and / or different presentation type.
Additionally, we will be having some "Moodle Showcase" sessions (similar to poster sessions) in which you will have the opportunity to show others what you or your institution / organization are doing with Moodle.
Are you a Moodle genius? There will also be a Moodle Genius Bar throughout most of the conference. If you are interested in sharing your skills and knowledge, please contact the Genius Bar and Workshop coordinator.

* Restriction of Submission
- Individual members and Institutional members
- As our conference grows bigger and more flourishing year by year, in the interests of quality, we’d like you to cooperate with our policy that, in principle, individual and institutional members can submit just ONE proposal for each type of presentation, that is to say you can submit a maximum of ONE regular presentation and/or ONE lightning talk and/or ONE showcase.
- For group presentations, if you are listed as a co-presenter, i.e. not the main presenter, you are still eligible to submit different proposals as the main presenter. Also, there is no restriction on the number proposals for workshops and genius bar sessions. The restriction on presentation proposals is not meant to absolutely eliminate multiple submissions. Multiple submissions may have a chance to enter the program if they receive significantly higher ratings from reviewers.
- By submitting a proposal to this conference, you are agreeing to abide by the following 3 guidelines:
- To keep presentations free of commercial bias.
- To present content in a fair and unbiased manner if relevant financial relationships exist.
- To declare that you are not receiving direct payments from a commercial entity with respect to the educational activity about which you are presenting.
- Sponsors are eligible for one to two regular presentation(s), lightning talks, and one to two workshop(s) and lunch presentations depending on the levels of sponsorship. See the sponsor brochure for details.
- Eligibility for Commercial Presentations (all forms of presentations including lightning talks, workshops, and others) are limited to the current Sponsors of the Moodle Association of Japan, or those who will complete application procedure by the time of Moodle Moot.
We ask for your understanding and call for vigorous submissions. Thank you.
