Moodle is once again mentoring students seeking to make code contributions to open source projects. Last year the GSOC contributions brought us closer to SCORM 2004 compliance and also Moodle Flavours
If you’re a student visit the Moodle GSOC page to learn more about the projects and applying. Accepted applicants will work with Moodle developer/mentors and will earn a stipend for their work. Act quickly though: the application deadline is 4/6/2012.
One of the most promising and interesting projects is adding a “Autosave” feature to Moodle http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Projects_for_new_developers#Form_text_autosave.
