Saw this on Twitter and had to share (Thanks to @Moodleman for the RT).  It’s a great video by Steve Williams (@MrHSIE) created in the style of Common Craft highlighting the history and use of Moodle.  A great introductory video.

  1. Good work well done. Is Moodle Web 2.0? I don’t think so. Many of the products tied into it are, but Moodle itself is not. Moodle is still largely a Web 1.0 product devoid of Flash and Ajax, built on a ‘Click, wait, Fresh’ platform, WEB 2.0 no, an antiquated PHP platform, Yes.

    It is still a very good product for what is does, solid secure and robust. It is still very ugly and hard for many people to love. I was hoping Moodle 2.0 was going to take a Frog VLE type approach, but no, more of the same, and who knows when Moodle 2.0 is going be released now. Keep up the good work, cheers Darren

  2. I agree that Moodle is not at the bleeding edge of web technology. But web2.0 is a pretty subjective term. Depends on your definition; according to Wikipedia: “The term “Web 2.0″ (2004-present) is commonly associated with web applications that facilitate interactive information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design, and collaboration on the World Wide Web…” [en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web2.0]. In that case I would say it passes.

    But if it’s all about Ajax and Flash, then you’re correct: it’s hardly “web 2.0”.

    Great addition to an ongoing discussion termed #Moodlewish on twitter: http://zaidlearn.blogspot.com/2010/05/join-moodlewish-twitter-stream.html

  3. Moodle is definitely Web 2.0 without but without all the built in stuff. Moodle is a framework that can support Web 2.0 which is way more important than passing a Web 2.x litmus test of ajax. I use Moodle with students to teach Web 2.x concepts and it is great! Thanks to Doug and the Moodle development team.

  4. Dynamic is not a word that comes to mind when you think of Moodle, WEB 2.0. I don’t think so.
    Web 2.0 Wikitionary;
    1. (Internet) The second generation of the World Wide Web, especially the movement away from static webpages to dynamic and shareable content and social networking.
