Webathon on WizIQ

Education & Technology MOOC Using WizIQ

MMVC14 Presenters

What’s a Webathon?

A webathon is an online conference with back-to-back webinars over a period of a few days. I just completed a 9-hour 3 day webathon called MMVC14. The experience was similar to running a marathon. I loved everything about it.

Over 2000 educators from approximately 70 countries joined MMVC14 4th annual 3-day webathon on WizIQ. The free online conference is over, but participants are still joining. Learning does not end when the webathon ends. You can enrol, watch the webinar recordings, review the content and tutorials, write a reflection on 3 webinars on a blog post, submit your link, and get a certificate.

August Webathon on WizIQ

MMVC14 stands for Moodle MOOT Virtual Conference (MMVC14). The first MMVC stared in 2011. It was planned as a face-to-face conference in Cancun, Mexico for the whole family. The goal was to have a vacation conference for educators and their families during the month of August in another country every year. When the face-to-face conference didn’t work out, MMVC11 needed a home as an online conference. That’s when WizIQ came to the rescue. The rest is history.

MMVC14 Webathon

MMVC14 took place on WizIQ for the first 3 days and then on Moodle for the certificates. The presenters received certificates for presenting and participants were awarded certificates for reflecting on 3 webinars.

Not Too Late

It’s not too late to join MMVC14, watch the webinars and reflect on 3 using the following template, submit on IT4ALL Moodle MOOT, and get a certificate. The option will be open until July 31, 2015.

Feedback on MMVC14

The energy during the live sessions was high. Both the presenters and attendees enjoyed the process. I would like to thank the 28 presenters who took us to their homes in Bolivia (1), Brazil (4), Canada (1), Denmark (1), Finland (2), Guatemala (1), India (2), Israel (1), Italy (1), Pakistan (1), Poland (2), South Africa (1), Spain (1), Sweden (1), UK (1), and USA (7).  The presenters are educators who are passionate about using technology for instruction and learning. They all volunteered their time to share what they do with other educators from over 70 countries.

Presenters and Participants of MMVC14

The success of MMVC14 is linked directly to the presenters and the attendees of the live online classes in real time. The presenters did an amazing job connecting to the attendees. The chat box was beaming with energy as the attendees asked questions, made comments and connected with the content, one another, and the presenters.  You’re invited to watch the recordings, read the messages in the chat box, and reflect on 3 webinars so you can receive a certificate.

Thank you
