    1. The Moodle project

      Moodle is one of the largest open source collaborative platform used in the development of curriculum.

      Moodle is an Australian company and has various levels of subscriptions including one level for free. Overall I have found the site to be user friendly rich with demos, documentation and support including community forums. This site supports multiple languages and has an easy to use drop down menu for that selection.

      RATING: 5/5 (rating based upon a score system 1 to 5, 1= lowest 5=highest in terms of content, veracity, easiness of use etc.)

    1. Learning Design Process

      The Royal Roads University has created this useful site that offers support and assistance in the design and development of curriculum. What I found to be very useful is the support dedicated for Moodle, the online curriculum software as I have recently signed up for the site.

      The methodology used by the University is focused on an outcomes approach with integration of pedagogical and technological elements and blended learning.

      The site has a research link and the kb was excellent. I was very pleased to have found this resource.

    1. Moodle is a modular authoring tool for courses but at this time does not create SCORM packages.

      Is there something about SCORM authoring in the Moodle roadmap? That could be very interesting.

    1. Quiz questions can be exported in IMS QTI 2.0 format.

      Yes? Other support documents make it sound like support was dropped by Moodle 2.1 or so.

    1. drive, in part, the development of the Moodle project through a democratic mechanism.

      Social scientists among us may dispute this “democracy” label. The whole “one dollar, one vote” system is literally a textbook example of the Matthew Effect (through which the rich get richer).

    2. The most popular project for the MUA to tackle was Learning Analytics

      Although Dougiamas claims Moodle already has what is needed in the form of logs and reports: no need for Caliper or xAPI.

    1. the plugin work they wanted to do anyway

      Giving structure to an existing initiative.

    2. a group that is not exactly in perfect alignment with Martin Dougiamas and Moodle HQ

      That’s one way to put it.

    3. a rationale for a group of large Moodle hosts to collaborate on testing plugins with an eye toward requirements that other Moodle users might not have

      There’s a clear need for collaborative work on LMS. But this approach deepens the impression that Moodle is a solution for “admins”.

    4. Moodlerooms, now owned by Blackboard Remote-Learner UK, now owned by Blackboard Netspot, now owned by Blackboard Nivel Siete, now owned by Blackboard

      During MoodleMoot, the notion that one organisation could “own” different institutional members of the Moodle Association was brushed away. But it sounds like a distinct possibility. Maybe not Blackboard but, say, a publishing house or an EdTech vendor…

    5. Lambda Solutions [Corrected.]

      Oh? They were quite present at MoodleMoot. Wonder what their ties are. Clearly, their solution isn’t free software. Nor is it pushing Open Standards for Learning Analytics.

    6. alliance of Moodle service providers that currently collaborate on Moodle-related projects of mutual interest
    7. if one or more of the larger companies were to leave the Partner program.

      Had not thought of that, during MoodleMoot. But, clearly, there’s a number of things at the back of Martin’s mind (or anyone else at Moodle HQ).
