Greetings from MoodlePosium 2012 at the the University of Canberra where
about 200 educators from the tertiary sector are looking at e-learning.

As first speaker, Professor Marnie Hughes-Warrington, Deputy
Vice-Chancellor (Academic) at ANU announced that ANU will be introducing
Blackboard Mobile, with applications designed for accessibility and well
as use on mobile devices. Also Equella and Turnitin will be introduced.
(BlackBoard Collaborate is being evaluated). I will be demonstrating my
ANU on-line green ICT course materials, which are designed for
accessible and mobile use, at 11:50am.

Professor Nick Klomp is the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) at the
University of Canberra, then discussed the use of the Mahara e-Portfolio
tool for students to plan what they wanted to achieve at university. He
proposed working jointly with other universities to enhance the Mahara
software, which is open source, to improve it use for universities (I
will be leading a discussion of this at 4:20pm).
