Notes

ELIS Presentation

ELIS was presented by Hubert Chathi from Remote-Learner.net. Hubert described the development, structure and implementation as well as plans for the future.

Hubert also raised some other lesser projects from Remote-Learner.net, including an improved cron system.

Plugins (M&P replacement)

The new Plugins system was demonstrated. The features of the new system were shown.

  • Screenshots
  • Multiple contributors
  • Versioning
  • Ratings and reviews
  • RSS feeds various steams of information

The system is on [moodle.org], but not open to the world as yet.

The future of the system was discussed, including encouraging people to upgrade code.

Moodle 2.2 progress

There was a quick overview of the Roadmap for 2.2.

Specifically the following topics were discussed in some detail.

  • Rubrics
  • Files and repositories
  • Milti-tenancy
  • iPhone app and Web services

Other stuff

  • Dan Poltawski attempted to speak about how Mahara code revision works, but was unable to share his desktop, unfortunately
  • Tim Hunt said he was contemplating two new types of plugin. One was to re-organise the question bank code into plugins (e.g. edit questions, edit categories, import, export and preview). This would let people add new functionality. The other was to convert mod/quiz/accessrules.php to be a set of sub-plugins of quiz.
  • Replacement for MNet through Web services and OAuth
