If you’re curious to read about all the papers presented at the 1st Moodle Research Conference you are in luck. The conference’s proceedings in full have been published in a book format.
You can access the entire document here: http://research.moodle.net/MoodleCon_Proceedings_program/index.htm
Included are nearly 20 full papers and around a dozen short papers highlighting everything from ELIS to course aesthetics and design paradigms to the Moodle Course Creator Certification Administration. I will definitely be checking this out in my spare time.
