Antarctic Chat time

Greetings All,
Well I am a touch nervous, I have just agreed to have a chat with you all about Antarctica and how I will be using Moodle in that environment! The idea has been kicked around but the usual Antarctic Factor and changes to my voyage has made it a bit last minute that I have been able to join.  I am really looking forward to the iMoot though!

I think everyone would be very interested in hearing about what you are doing - pretty exciting that Moodle has reached Antarctica.

Hi Michelle,

No need to feel nervous we are a friendly bunch.

So what are you using Moodle for? Is this you site:

Hi Jeremy, 

The site you sent is the general Bureau site, but after trials last summer I will be setting up a separate MOODLE installation in Antarctica. It will be more like our internal Bureau MOODLE site. 

Glad to hear that some people are interested, I'll be interested to see if any of you have ideas about how we might make it work better in Antarctica!

Cheers and chat in a few hours~
