Steve Parkinson – The Open University
Looking at OpenStudio, a visually-rich Moodle tool the Open University has developed that helps remote students develop the feedback skills normally developed in physical spaces
Contract cheating means taking an entire work written by someone else instead of student. Every year more and more students resort to this type of cheating and there should be a reason for it. More precisely, a lot of reasons.
We will try to go a bit deeper, investigating the most popular circumstances that lead to student cheating and introduce Emma, our proprietary authorship verification technology. Emma analyzes student writing style and helps determine the true authorship of a particular work.
We will learn how to work with different types of students in order to prevent the problem before it grows and to show them alternative way.
Gerente de Desarrollo de Unicheck
Haakon Meland Eriksen – Norwegian Association of Local and Regional Authorities (KS)
How to make a competent Public Sector through sharing and working together? Norwegian Association of Local and Regional Authorities present KS Learning together with our Moodle partner, Catalyst IT Europe.
Adam Jenkins – Shizuoka Institute of Science and Technology
The International Virtual Exchange Project provides students with opportunities to interact in forums with people from all around the world to exchange information and ideas
Devin Hillenius & Youri Voet – CodeGrade
The most powerful way to maximize learning is by giving qualitative and personal feedback to students, especially in ICT education. This is, however, very time consuming. In this session we’ll explore how we can use efficiency enhancing tools and data to aid educators into giving personal feedback quickly. We’ll explore what’s already available, but also think about new ideas.
One Moodle: Sharing, Co-creating and Recognition
Bram Lauwers – Federal Public Service: Policy and Support.
Moodle helps to promote and put in place a New Way Of Learning Culture within the federal public services of Belgium. A Corporate learning culture of sharing, co creating and recognition.

Marcus Green – Titus Learning
In the world of education publishing, it is common to have two versions of a book, the teacher and the student version. I propose that Moodle should have more features to support the idea of a teacher version, and will explain in this session how this is possible.
Gaspar Perez – Wiris
One of the main difficulties of moving from paper to digital is in scientific assessments where the answers are complex expressions that computers can’t understand. We’ve solved that problem! Join this session to learn about Wiris Quizzes – a tool that allows students to input math expressions that are automatically graded.
Anne-Dominique Salamin – University of Applied Sciences in Western Switzerland
“Satisfactory survey” allows to create satisfaction surveys using various types of questions (global question, open questions, yes/no, Likert scale). Each question can be linked to a specific topic. Survey results are automatically presented in reports presenting aggregated data(comments, participants responses and rates) with meaningful graphs (Likert scale, radar, gauge, etc.).
Georgina McKenna – MEDIAL
Teachers want to use video in their courses but they are faced with two challenges:
– what tool(s) can they use to do
– knowing what the best practices are in creating it.
Organizationally the challenge faced is either this video being uploaded to multiple different systems or worse still it is uploaded directly into Moodle. In this presentation you will learn how you could overcome these challenges and give your teachers the tools they need at the same time as effectively managing your media content.
Boost navigation fumbling

The collaborative StudentQuiz enables students to create their own question pools and quizzes. StudentQuiz provides an effective learning experience using crowd intelligence, filters, and personal learning assistance.
Tim Hunt – The Open University
Moodle may be free, but to thrive it needs to be cared for properly. We will tell you how we look after the Open University’s Moodle. The things we do, and more importantly the people who do them.
Modern tools allow teachers to engage students during class through interactive lessons. In this workshop, we will see how to extend this behaviour outside the classroom and help students study at their own pace while providing meaningful and personalized guidance.
Antonino Sistac – Director, ReadSpeaker
Voice is a growing trend in education technology now, and rightly so. It’s a proven support for diverse students and faculty. Brands around the globe recognize the importance of voice tech, especially for exclusive, lifelike digital voice personas and AI for voice-first systems. Advancements in these core technologies are driving the shift from graphical interface to voice interface. And ReadSpeaker was there from the very beginning. Get ready to hear more about these technologies as voice-first interface usage expands around the world, from smart speakers in living rooms to smart assistants on the move, wherever consumers go. Even robots are using ReadSpeaker voices.
ReadSpeaker has been working with Moodle for quite some time to allow all students to learn while listening to content, or listen while reading. Adding our technology in Moodle is straight forward, and using the service is even easier. At ReadSpeaker we would like you to understand why voice-based accessibility, universal design and convenience is important for all your students and even faculty.
We will briefly show some of the most advanced features integrated in Moodle, and even allow all attendees to have a free trial for their institution.
Toshihiro Kita – Kumamoto University
In this presentation, we will share our exploration of how an LMS such as Moodle with learning contents for safety education in the fields of “child injury prevention,” “environmental safety engineering,” and “emergency nursing education.” At this stage, our Moodle is equipped with a voice user interface and a chatbot type interface for testing in practical situations.
Rick Jerz – The University of Iowa
In this presentation, you will learn the advantages and disadvantage of one of Moodle’s most powerful, yet most confusing built-in question types is “calculated multichoice.” You will learn how to create it, see it in use, and learn about some consideration to using it.

Giuseppe Fiorentino – Italian Naval Academy & Associazione Italiana Utenti Moodle
Does the translation of hundreds of wiki pages from the English Moodle documentation sound like a daunting task? Yes it does. Nevertheless, in this presentation, Giuseppe Fiorentino will introduce his Traduttòmetro, an online tool that helped him, a graduating student and a team of young trainee translators to obtain a quality translation of over 800 pages of Moodle Docs in Italian. The international version can help other Local Moodle Communities to start their own translation project
Igor Pesek – University of Maribor
Jeff Rubenstein – Kaltura
Our learning environments are ecosystems, each piece of which has a different set of data about student behavior. These data have the potential to provide rich insights, but there’s a great deal of work to do in aggregating and massaging this data to get there. There are emerging solutions on the horizon; and these should start to inform every institution’s data strategy. We’ll discuss the emerging IMS Caliper standard, the systems that are in place to consume this data, and enabling the work of predicting student success (and intervening for at-risk students) that have the potential to transform our education in the future.
Mark Harnor – Turnitin
Spot the cheat. Turnitin’s new Authorship Investigate adopts forensic linguistics best practices and machine learning technology to bring confidence to the process of investigating suspicions of contract cheating. This is your chance to see this new and innovative solution in action.
