Moodle MOOT Virtual Conference

MMVC15 is short for Moodle MOOT Virtual Conference. MMVC11 was scheduled to take place in Cancun, Mexico. It was designed as a summer vacation for the whole family. Things didn’t work out, and it became an online event. Maybe, one day, MMVC will take place face-to-face somewhere around the world.
