TCEA Moodle Academy Presentations List

Some time ago, Monica Martinez (TCEA) sent me the following list of Moodle Academy presentations. Although I'm sure the list is available elsewhere (especially now that the Android/iPhone apps are available), I thought it might be fun to repost it here:

We’re just a few weeks away from the TCEA 2011 conference! I wanted to follow up once more with information about the MoodleAcademy. Several reminders and the schedule can be found below. This program will be printed and available on-site. We look forward to your presentation and hope to make this event a “must attend” event for years to come.

Presenter Reminders:
The MoodleMoot Academy will be held during the TCEA 2011 Convention and Exposition, from Monday, February 7 - Tuesday, February 8, in Rooms 1 and 3. This two-day event requires registration and is free to convention registration attendees. Please register for the event if you plan to attend the event outside of presenting.
 
Presenters are required to check in at the VIP/Presenter Check-In near Registration at least 30 minutes prior to your session start time.
  
The program is listed below. Please review your session information and let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you,

TCEA 2011 Moodle Academy
