"Use your Noodle, use Moodle" is one slogan of Jeffery Watkins' from a long time ago. It's quite good, but can we do better?
Let's see some creativity!
Submit your designs here in this thread (as fairly low-res JPEG or PNG files, save the hi-res versions for later) - I'll put them up for a vote and the most popular three designs will be sent out as prizes to the winning designers on their choice of any t-shirt from the shop! (and the rest of us can buy one if we want to!)
Sandbox bigger than Australia
This is of course influenced by Petr's post at the Security Center
This is an intersting phrase. What about the phrasee associated with an orange sandbox containing sand and a globe in the sand.
WE'VE TRIED THE REST, MOODLE'S THE BEST!
(I learned that second word on Ellis Island,
seems to be Dutch like snoop, stoop and Yankee)
And simple good as well!
Think it would also be nice on a banner.
is powered by
that's slogan (with a big M and a hat in the centre of the t-shirt can be really amazing). I'll buy one, sure!
More slogans (without graphical artefacts):
"Moodle: Born to learn"
"Yes, I'm a moodler!"
"How many moodlers do you know"
"Life is life, learn is Moodle"
"Vini, vidi, Moodle"
"Why? (in the front), "why not" (with a big logo in the back).
"I've had an idea..."
"When will 1.5 be released?"
"Moodle and I"
"Moodle and you"
"Something has changed"
"Bye, bye, instructivism (objectivism)" (http://it.coe.uga.edu/itforum/paper48/paper48.htm)
"Something has happened"
And what about a perfect square of text (filled with a powerful phrase in, at least, 60 different languages ), with Moodle's logo in the centre and the text fluxing around it.
Too tired to draw anything but I didn't resist the temptation to write this... ciao
under this shirt
for an orange
for a mortar board
(Our hat is called a mortar board in English)
Well, that wins my vote....
One question...how did you get the cow to stand still long enough to keep the hat on? You have talents why beyond the realm of Egyptian hieroglyphs!
I was in the computer lab at school when I read your post. I had to leave for a while until I could stop laughing.
Too, too much!
Good one N!
I don't know if I've ever seen the original "Got milk?", but a dozen of the spoofs though.
I have no idea what this got milk thing is about so having moooodle would make more sense to me
Wait a minute - you can put a hat on a cow but can't add udders?
Your Nubian story reminds me why National Geographic was so popular with 10 year old boy set. Now a days all they have to do is turn on MTV.
Many years ago my wife and attended the New Years Day Mummers Parade in Philadelphia. One clubs theme was fun in the barnyard. In addition to men dressed as chickens, pigs, the farmer and his daughters, about twenty guys were dressed up as dairy cows. They walked down the parade standing upright in their costumes. Ok use your imagination and picture where the cows udders (note the use of the plural form of the word) where located on the costumes. Interesting sight.
All and all, I still vote for the cow .its Moooodlerrific!
This all reminds me of a Far Side cartoon - the one where the cows are chatting, standing on their hind legs and leaning on the fence like they're proppign up a bar, until a car goes past and they return to grazing.
Means Gary Larson predicted cows moodling over a decade ago!
... with the cow it would be priceless.
I love it
There could be all kinds of variations on this theme.....just playing around....
made album cover like this
I am afraid of this cow!
Martin, does that mean you like cows like Linus Torvalds likes penguins?
To revert to topic, a bit, I was looking for appropriate images and found http://c2c-1.rocketbeach.com/~bluehorse/cowparade.html!
You couldn't make it up.
I had tourists telling me to milk it, lot try and push it over!
I am not sure if this is brilliance or prrof I am trully disturbed for finding it funny. Aiether way...Brilliant idea....
"Lead the herd...use Moodle!"
Or, to mis-quote the tagline of my son's favourite TV storybook where cynical cows always criticise the Blue Cow - "Everybody knows cows can't represent a learning platform" - but we know they can, don't we?
I need to get out more....
The cow is wonderful....How about (see below)
Udderly fantastic.............MOODLE !
T-Shirt front: logo, back: an image like this, this or this (the second is more like what I had in mind, but it has an extra surfer in the picture) with the slogan "stirring the waters of education".
Going to sleep, and hoping that someone can enlighten me even if the slogan sucks.
Test me I'm a Moodler
Kiss me I'm a Moodler ;)
By the way what about a new design for the Moodle Logo. Maybe more graphic/international ?
I've been thinking of finding a graphic designer to polish it up a bit, but the image itself is here to stay now.
antidote of the ignorance
Do you oodle?
Of course, this should be done in a nicer way from a graphic point of view.
Apart from the logo and text how about new T shirt colours that do not need sunglasses to look at?
Black for those Goth / Neo(Matrix) types or Dark Blue for the Conservatives out there. White or orange text will stand out more on these backgrounds I think.
What colours do they offer at the moment?
The Mooooooodle book worm.
unfortunately I was just using the demo so ran out of branches As a result I didn't try too hard to make it accurate or pretty so I offer this as a proof on concept . Prob a bit too detailed for a t-shirt anyhoo but I'm sure a good mind mapper would be able to come up with something better.
Mad Coooooooooool Darren!!
Anyhoo, as a result of my play I am going to try and buy the software at work and see if the students would like to use it to organise their progress.
I think it would be an interesting design but would depend upon how much space on the t-shirt was available.
The OS one looks a little more techie and a little more time is needed to get into it but that's fine. I will put the download on our VLE software section.
If it wishes it I can give him of discharge in Maps of Moodle for its edition or copies. It can be a rough draft of the English version.
Be Smarter...? (in the front)
Be Moodler... (in the back)
"Moodle Along. A way away from Blackboard"
The slogan for the current one is:
Moodle your way to the head of the herd class.
The class is always greener on the Moodle side.
Ok, I am gonna ask this, although everyone else gets it, what does a cow have to do with Moodle? Is Moodle slang for what cows do somewhere?
I can imagine there are other languages too where the cows sound different
Not trying to be tooooo serious, I have to agree with N on that one. Cute for the very mature however.
Yeah, I could seem some beer soaked dim wit being hauled away by the police screaming "but she invited me..."
Best leave that one alone....
Good work Julian!
If htere is interest then maybe we could put these items on the store.
Can I use this for the Moodle logo link for a site I am working on?
I would like to change the colors a bit and make it much smaller. I think the circle shape will look better based on where I am going to place it.
Do you have PSD files for it?
It's very bold and still moodlesque.
I really like this design but at the risk of becoming the most unpopular person on the forums... Wouldn't it look better without the Mortarboard?
The Mortarboard carries with it a weight of culturally and academically specific connotations that seem unsettling in the context of the Moodle ethos.
The Mortarboard seems also to locate Moodle in the past - being highly symbolic of authority, tradition, and the class system.
Aesthetically - and I'm talking personally here, that cap isn't an attractive symbol. The letter M/word Moodle (with it's rounded typeface) and the orange colour would much funkier and cleaner.
On a purely design level for this circular moodle powered logo I agree - the hat is not quite right in there.
With either the standard moodle logo or maybe the above shown "powered logo" on the front pocket and this on the back.
Consider allowing the ideas to flooooow a while longer.
The secret to the universe is the "Tree of Moodle"
You started the cows. Cows, Hinduism, Judaic Kabbalah. Extreme Moodling!
Of course Modle is a religion. Isn't it about sharing, caring, making the world a better, more peaceful place?
PS: I printed out all the super T-shirt ideas to decorate my classroom in order to demonstrate what kind of great ideas are born when people all over the world work together.
A Shining star in the Universe of knowledge!
I never wear t-shirts to school (no formal policy, I just don't think it looks very professional). But I made an exception when I got this great Harry Potter t-shirt. The front reads "I solemnly swear I am up to no good." The back reads "Mischief managed." (If you haven't read the books this won't make sense!)
Anyway I decided to wear the shirt to school because I knew my students would like it. The principal had neglected to inform me that we were having a conference with a parent to discuss retaining a student that day. So here I sit in the conference with a shirt that reads "I solemnly swear I am up to no good" while explaining to the parent that her daughter is immature, has very poor work habits, and needs to repeat the grade!
