Moodle Partner, Webanywhere and Apollo Education Group recently collaborated on a presentation at the US MoodleMoot in Minneapolis. The focus of the presentation was “bleeding edge user experience” and showed how Moodle can be drastically changed to provide users of all roles a much different/improved experience using the LMS.
Joshua Painter, VP of Product at AEG joined Webanywhere CEO Sean Gilligan for a presentation on “Bleeding Edge UX: Pushing the limits of Moodle to transform the course experience”. After a brief introduction by Gilligan, Painter delivered a highly informative presentation on how AEG have enhanced Moodle’s learning experience by developing innovative plugins, encouraging active learning, fostering social and collaborative learning and helping learners apply the learning in their workplace environment.
…Sean Gilligan, Webanywhere CEO, said: “We were delighted to sponsor MoodleMoot US and to be given the opportunity to present with Apollo Education Group on the innovative developments that can be made with Moodle, reinforcing its position as the leading worldwide open-source LMS”.
You can see some of the background to their thinking (providing an “app-like” experience to rival that of using sites like Uber, Netflix, etc. to learners) and some of their design aesthetics in the presentation below. Check it out on Slideshare at http://goo.gl/5Ehlxu
