Article on HIZPIDE journal

hizpide-81_azalatxWe have just found out that the latest number of the HIZPIDE (the journal for teachers of Basque to adult learners) has published our article about Babelium.

Congress & Conferences

Hi all,

just a quick post to let you know that we will be presenting Babelium’s plugin for Moodle next week in Crete, in the 1st Moodle Research Conference 🙂  The plugin became an approved Moodle’s plugin on July 2 so we will celebrate it in Greece.

Flying back to Spain, we will make a stop at Madrid to meet our Moodle friends in the Moodle Moot Spain 2012. You can already check the full program (our paper will be presented on friday 21, september)

Last but not least, tomorrow we’ll be also working our way at Donostia’s San Telmo Museum, in the presentation of a great Citizens’ Initiatives compendium that the Basque Government is promoting inside a project called LanIrekia. A lot of interesting people will gather around this initiative, so it will be fun and interesting to drop by there 😉
