Are you going to EdtechPosium?

By Scott Huntley | Events , News

Pukunui Technology is proud to once again (and in a way, for the first time) sponsor EdtechPosium! EdtechPosium, formerly known as MoodlePosium, is an annual conference organised by a collection of six Canberra based institutions. EdtechPosium focuses on educational technologies in the higher learning and vocational education sectors. This year, the theme is Fitting the Tech to Teaching, a fitting topic for the shift from a focus on Moodle to all Educational Technology.

We are not only proud to sponsor EdtechPosium, we are also proud to announce that Pukunui Trainer/Consultant Kenneth Scott Huntley will be presenting on both days. Scott will present on his experience building the ultimate Moodle course template with his last employer. He’ll also show you why he’s called the IoT Moodler with his presentation on using Arduino to teach programming. If you have no idea what Arduino is or why it’s fun to play with, you’ll want to see this talk.

But equally important, Scott will be there to meet and connect with our clients. We know a lot of you go to events like EdtechPosium, to meet fellow educators and gain insight and inspiration, and Pukunui wants to support you on your journeys of discovery. If you are already planning on going, make it your mission to share a cup of coffee with Scott and tell him your Moodle stories. We all love reconnecting with our clients at Pukunui, and events like these are great opportunities to do so.

And if you aren’t going, well, why not? You’ll have to move fast because registration is closing soon, but this is a great Australian edtech event we are proud to be a part of. We believe you’ll meet new friends and develop a professional network, be inspired by the presenters, including the five amazing keynote speakers, learn more about educational technologies like Moodle, and have a great time.

Details

EdtechPosium runs from October 30 to 31 at UNSW Canberra at ADFA in Campbell, ACT. Tickets are $340.

Upcoming Fortnightly Tips

By Scott Huntley | News , Training Tips

Three months ago we started Fortnightly Tips, Pukunui’s free fifteen-minute webinar showing you tips and tricks for the Moodle™ LMS. Since March we have had seven webinars, with topics ranging from Competencies to Activity Completions. Fortnightly Tips was even streamed live from iMoot, allowing Fortnightly Tips users the chance to sample the world’s largest fully online LMS conference.

Pukunui is pleased to have such a positive response to Fortnightly Tips from our customers, and is looking forward to bringing you many more great tips and tricks in the future. Some of the topics coming up include:

  • Tricks with the Choice Activity
  • A multi-episode series on Quizzes and the Question Bank
  • Using Grade Categories
  • Orphaned Activity tips and tricks

Using the Feedback Activity – June 16th

This fortnight, Pukunui Trainer and Consultant Scott will show you the Feedback activity. Feedback is a great way to add a questionnaire to your Moodle course and receive some feedback from your students. Scott will clear up the confusion between the Feedback, Choice and Survey activities. He’ll also show you how to add questions to a feedback questionnaire (including conditional questions) and interpret the results. And he’ll give you some tricks to only allow students to complete the Feedback activity after they’ve completed part or all of the course.

Join Us

Fortnightly Tips is a free webinar and held every second Friday. We broadcast live from learn.pukunui.com at the following times:

9:30 AM Sydney / 7:30 AM Perth, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong
12:30 PM Sydney / 10:30 AM Perth, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong
2:30 PM Sydney / 12:30 PM Perth, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong

During the live session, you have the chance to participate in the discussion and ask questions.

Missed a session? Catch the replay! All previous sessions are available at learn.pukunui.com. Come learn about Using BigBlueButton, or Managing your Courses using a CSV, or any of the other topics we’ve covered so far.

We’ll see you on Friday, June 16th.
