Dear all


As you might (or might not have heard), Moodle HQ - the people behind the Moodle open source project - are hosting their first ever MoodleMoot India 2017 in Mumbai, from 18 - 19 December, at the Sahara Star Hotel.


Moodle HQ is working with our Moodle Partners in India and an event committee, including myself, to make this two-day conference a success.


I would like to encourage you, your colleagues and networks to take part in MoodleMoot India 2017.


There are many reasons to be part of MoodleMoot this year:


  1. Moodle HQ recognises the need for a cost-effective, powerful and open source learning platform in India and would like to invite existing Moodlers and those interested in Moodle to join them at MoodleMoot India 2017 to find out more about what’s new,  what’s coming up with and how you can empower your educators with Moodle.

  2. Recently, chief Moodler, Martin Dougiamas, announced a new investment partnership with Education For The Many. Find out directly from Martin how this will advance Moodle’s key projects and how you can be involved in shaping the future of our open source learning platform.

  3. At this Moot, Moodle HQ will present a new program, focussed on the role of education in Moodle, planning/envisioning sessions with our Moodlers in India to get ideas on features you’d like to see in Moodle and the latest update in mobile learning.

  4. Meet fellow Moodlers or those interested / well-versed in edtech, education and technology face-to-face, and get the opportunity to network, share ideas, collaborate on projects.


You can get involved in many ways:


  1. Be a participant and register your spot for the two days, which include access to all presentations, workshops, networking events and a Moodle Party. Hurry, early bird prices available until 27 October: https://moodlemoot.org/mootin17/registration-2/

  2. Submit a presentation showcasing your Moodle project, experience or stories that will help other Moodlers learn and discover more about the platform. Successful presentations receive a complimentary entry: https://moodlemoot.org/mootin17/submit-a-presentation/

  3. Be a supporter of MoodleMoot India 2017 by encouraging your company to sponsor the conference and have the opportunity to increase brand awareness. For a sponsorship package please contact: [email protected]

  4. Help spread the word about MoodleMoot India 2017 to other Moodlers you know, to your networks and colleagues. Let’s make sure we empower a lot of peers and educators with this open source software and strengthen our Moodle community in India. I’ve attached a flyer to help you spread the word easily!

  5. Follow @moodlemootindia on Twitter and share news and updates to your followers!
