Hampshire College to Serve on CLAMP Steering Committee

CLAMPHampshire College was fortunate to become involved with the Collaborative Liberal Arts Moodle Project (CLAMP) when we began testing and using the Moodle learning management system (LMS) in 2009.

We are happy to announce that Hampshire College was nominated to serve on the CLAMP Steering Committee. This committee oversees the Collaborative Liberal Arts Moodle Project, determining which events will be held — such as the biannual Moodle Hack/Doc Fests and the recent Git and Ruby workshops — and sets the budget for the organization. The committee also determines the strategic path for the organization, such as which Moodle versions will be supported by the group.

Colleges serve three year terms on the committee. The original founding schools have been slowly rotating off, and this year Luther College and Smith College are stepping down.

Given Hampshire College’s long-time participation in CLAMP, its physical location, and its relationship with the Five Colleges, the steering committee felt that Hampshire would be a good fit to step into the role that Smith College held.
