Swiss Academic Moodle Community

SAMoo is a community for Moodle administrators at Swiss Higher Education Institutions. We meet one to two times a year to exchange knowhow and best practices in didactic and technical fields related to Moodle, and we start new projects and coordinate activities together.


Our goals

  • Differentiate from the international Moodle community and address Swiss specific questions (e.g. SWITCHaai and SWITCH edu-ID).
  • Speak with one strong voice to national and foreign bodies.
  • Establish a "Swiss Moodle cookbook" with a collection of tutorials of Swiss Higher Education Institutions.
  • Develop plugins together (e.g. SWITCHcast plugin).
  • Exchange technical and didactical information and best practices.
  • Create a map of Moodle communities with their respective activities and specialities.


Meetings - coming up

Our meetings are single day events, hosted in turn by volunteering member universities, with contributions on didactic and technical topics and room for discussion. The aim of these meetings is to facilitate informal communication within the community.
