The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR regulation) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all people within the European Union (EU). It is the most important change in data privacy regulation in last 20 years.
While the organizations are getting ready to become GDPR compliant before the regulation becomes effective from 25 May 2018 . Moodle is also looking to support Moodle sites in EU to become GDPR complaint.
How to involve in GDPR Compliance testing?
As we reported earlier about the Moodle HQ’s approach towards GDPR regulation. Moodle HQ team is going to develop features which can be initially installed as Moodle plugins for Moodle 3.3 & 3.4. These plugins will be included in Moodle core for Moodle 3.5 versions which will be the next LTS version release.
In continuation to the approach, Moodle HQ team is looking for Moodle Site Admins and data privacy officers to help in GDPR compliance testing. The participants need to test the GDPR features and give their opinion on what needs to be improve by March 2018.
If you would like to take part in the testing, you can choose a suitable time through this calendar link. You will need to spent around 10-15 minutes carrying out a quick card sorting activity & usability test based on the prototype features.
Hurry up and book your spot soon to be a part of Moodle’s GDPR Compliance regulation journey.
If you would like to share your views/feedback about the GDPR support plan, please get involved in this Moodle Forum thread.
