As we get closer to our January 2019 testing, we’re also getting better at explaining what MoodleNet is! This is our latest attempt at that, and we’d love your feedback:

  1. Looks like a lot of cool things are on the horizon.
    A couple questions/comments: I didn’t see Moodle partners mentioned, are they still part of the planning?
    The other items is related to content/resource creation. Educators, at least the K-12 type that I have most experience with are generally very good at finding things. Building resources is quite another story. In my experience, the teaching profession still relies heavily on few educators who spend countless hours developing skills and building resources. Bringing any number of teachers together to actually build common resources is always a challenge, primarily due to the fact that everyone seems to be building in the environments of their choice. As a consequence, resources tend to be scattered around and almost always require effort to “adapt them for local use”, sometimes significant.
    Missed opportunities and money spend to modify content and resources so they play nice with whatever the chosen system is are no doubt huge and in my mind, entirely not necessary and always benefit the providers of the various systems/platforms. I was wondering (and hoping) that MoodleNet could be a place where educators actually build.

    1. Hi Dirk, thanks for the questions!

      1. Partners – as you know, any innovation project has several stages. Although Moodle Partners have been updated about what we’re doing with MoodleNet, I feel like we need to prove the value proposition first. Plus, they’ve been very involved in a new project which will also be announced soon, so they’ve been busy!

      2. Resource creation – I actually think the next step beyond resource sharing is co-ordinating the building of resources. There is a plethora of tools, both online and offline, to help you build resources. Martin Dougiamas has suggested, and I agree, that crowdfunding resources that don’t currently exist seems to be something that’s needed. Moodle Partners could definitely be involved with that.
