Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.3. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Roadmap.

This roadmap collects the best information about upcoming features in Moodle. It is not 100% certain - features may change according to available funding and developers.

Version 1.9 - Expected June 2007

The gradebook system will be revamped for performance, switching from our older "pull" model to a "push" model where all modules will now publish grades as necessary into a central table. Support for (local/state) outcomes/goals/competencies is included! => really hope to consider including Gradebook Plus or add similar features to allow instructors to input grades directly!
The new Events API provides a way for any code to "hook" into events in a clean, loosely coupled way. it's a foundation of the new Gradebook.
  • Repository API ? - Open University, Moodle.com, Humboldt and Warp Networks
Abstract all file operations to an API that allows plugins for different external repositories
Allows questions to be shared by the whole site, a course category, a singe course, or be kept private to a single module. More control over who can do what to each question.
We plan to have a very simple export for any Moodle course into IMS LD format, as a proof of concept and to help the community start learning about IMS LD.
Site-wide groups, reusable groups, and assigning activities to groups are the major improvements being developed

Version 2.0 - Expected Late 2007

Support for importing/exporting LD, converting Moodle activities and sequences of activities into a standard format for sharing, and importing standard sequences into Moodle courses
Allowing dependencies and forced paths through the content
Makes it easy for users to find and navigate other systems and external Moodle repositories, leveraging the Moodle Network in various ways.
API for integrating external systems for managing student information
  • Old DB install/upgrade system removed
The deprecated system for installing or upgrading database entries used in Moodle < 1.7 will be completely removed, while supporting only the new XML based database scheme introduced in 1.7
Moodle Voice is a project for embedding VoiceXML support into Moodle Core.

Note: Moodle 2.0 will require PHP 5.1 as a minimum, because of certain improvements not available in PHP 4.

Version 2.1

Interface Moodle activities and repositories to help produce portfolios for internal assessment AND external publication
