One of those posts

It seems that whenever I get a blog, I (eventually) fill it up with posts that start with, “Sorry I haven’t posted in a while…”


So what have I been doing?

I presented at Wintec at their eLearning conference. I did two presentations, the first one was about the changes in Moodle 1.9 to 2.x, and was basically a condensed version of the MoodleBites 1.9 to 2.x course we run. The second was a brief slot during a wider presentation on PD opportunities, and I talked about what MoodleBites had to offer for lecturers and other staff at Wintec.

I have been working on the MoodleBites for Theme Designers course.

I currently have three courses on MoodleBites that I am facilitating, so that is keeping me busy, too. MaharaBites, MoodleBites for Theme Designers, and the Moodle 1.9 to 2.x Upgrade course.

My work at Unitec has also been keeping me busy with our pilot of Moodle 2.2 site launching just before Christmas, then right up to this week (the first week of Semester 1, 2012). The campus is teaming with students again and has really come to life after a quiet Christmas period where there was no one here but us chickens.


I have done some training here and there onsite, which is always great fun. I love going to different schools or tertiary institutes and working with their lecturers. It gives me a great buzz to show people new things about Moodle, especially if they’re keen to learn.
