A group of Moodlers in the Midwest are working to develop a new socially oriented (re: not like the current Social format) course format for Moodle based on Edmodo.com and the Facebook newsfeed. If you’re interested in this project you can participate directly in the forum at Moodle.org: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=257998
According to the post,
We are soliciting community ideas and thoughts that might help us develop a more complete product.
Here is the initial job posting we made over 2 years ago with some of our initial thoughts: https://moodle.org/mod/data/view.php?d=54&rid=5607&filter=1
This has been a long time coming but we feel we are very close to finally getting the funds to undertake such a project.
Please share your thoughts as we plan to give this back to the community when complete.
Our ultimate goal would be to develop something that could be refactored into the core as a possible forum/social upgrade.
If you have funds and would also like to be a part of this please contact me directly and I can share more specific details. [permalink]
