What to do in order to participate:

Although you are welcome to drop in to any/all workshops without signing up or doing anything in advance, the following are recommended in order for you to be able to participate fully in the workshops:

  1. Sign up ahead of time for a development account in either Moodle or WebVista (whichever you prefer). Each workshop we will be doing hands-on practice applying what you learn. Even if you already have a course in Moodle or WebVista, we recommend that you also have a development account so that you can practice and experiment during the workshop without fear of messing up something you have created in a "real" course.
  2. Register a day (or more) ahead of time for the workshop by sending an email to Helen Mongan-Rallis at hrallis@d.umn.edu indicating which workshop you plan to attend.
  3. Although we will provide laptops to anyone who needs them, you may prefer to bring your own laptop.
