Meeting Moodle Helen from Moodle HQ!

Although Moodle HQ  is physically based in Perth Western Australia, it has remote  outposts thousands of miles away in the Northern Hemisphere and last week I was privileged to  meet Helen Foster Moodle Community Manager and c0-author of Using Moodle  2nd Ed who’s based in Bonheiden, Belgium. We spent a lovely few hours together over dinner and a view of the runway of Brussels airport, talking about everything from the ins and outs of moodle.org and moodle.com to the linguistic nuances of Flemish v Dutch v German ( once a linguist, always a linguist!). I look forward to meeting Helen again if I can somehow get back onto mainland Europe – especially as one of her revelations was how lovely German (and ex-Midland) Moodler Stephan Rinkeis  🙂

  1. Hi Mary,

    that must have been a fantastic meeting – two of the moodle angels in one place 😉 I bet you had a fantastic time and that a lot of productive and creative ideas have been exchanged. I’m looking forward to the results of this!

    The next moodle-related opportunities to meet up are the moodlemoot 2010 in Berlin in March and the moodle2010 conference in Essen in September 2010. But if you ever want to come down to the Ruhr (Essen is the European Capital of Culture next year), there is a spare bed for you here!
