MoodleMoots are events where the Community of Moodle users, developers and administrators get together to share experiences and good practice with our open source LMS, and also expand their knowledge and skills. It also provides them with the opportunity to hear about the latest developments from Moodle HQ, our Moodle Partners and also our MoodleMoot sponsors, who offer a wide range of solutions and services to expand e-learning projects and training platforms.
Today we speak with Johanne Ménager from Wiris, a Silver Sponsor for MoodleMoot UK and Ireland 2019, who will be at the event in Manchester next month.
Moodle HQ: Hello, Johanne! We are very pleased to have Wiris in MoodleMoot UK & Ireland as one of our Silver sponsors! For those who might not know Wiris, could you explain what your math and science solution does, and how it can enhance online teaching with Moodle?
Johanne: WIRIS is a mathematical software company based in Barcelona. We offer a suite of math (STEM) tools for Moodle and other LMS platforms. Let me introduce you our two main products:
With MathType it’s possible to type and handwrite mathematical notation and easily include quality math equations in documents and digital contents.
Wiris Quizzes comes as a bundle of new question types for Moodle, including open answers, automated grading and random parameters for math questions in the Moodle Quiz module.
Moodle HQ: What can delegates who visit your stand find out more about?
Johanne: For those working to improve their math teaching-learning process with support of EdTech we can share our experience! Especially if the projects need outstanding mathematical tools.
Beyond Moodle, if your project involves tools like Google Docs, Microsoft Word or iPads used on a daily basis MathType is also there to improve the teacher and students user experience.
Wiris team can share it’s wide experience in deploying STEM related projects. Not only regarding Wiris Quizzes as an assessment tool but also covering training, learning analytics, content creation and teacher support aspects.
Moodle HQ: You have sponsored many Moots in the past, and are sponsoring more this year too. Why do you choose to sponsor MoodleMoots?
Johanne: It’s exactly as you say, we have participated many times in MoodleMoots events in Europe, Asia, America, Australia and Oceania looking for those famous Mojito parties during the Moots. Now seriously, Moodle is the Open-source LMS with the most dynamic user community. It is a pleasure to continue participating, exchanging experiences and getting feedback to improve our math tools.
Moodle HQ: And finally, how can delegates keep up to date with the latest news about Wiris and contact you before the event?
Johanne: We are active in different social networks with the @mathtype and @wirismath profiles. You can get updates at Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
