Call for Presentations at the 8th Moodle Moot Japan, 2015
From July 27th to September 30th (Wed) October 18th (Sun), 2015

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.

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.

Session time slots will be 90 or 40 minutes, and 10-minute Lightning Talks. In the submission form you are asked to indicate your desired presentation type and time, 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.
