Plans for the future

Ideas for and details of planned future features of Moodle are initially discussed on the forums in the Using Moodle course at moodle.org. That developer discussions are intermixed with user discussions in the same forums may seem strange at first but is one of the reasons for the success of Moodle. It is important that both end-users and developers discuss the future features together.

Once ideas begin to crystalize on the forums they can be summarized in this wiki, either as part of the Roadmap or in the form of Developer notes. These pages then form the basis for further discussion in the forums.

Documentation for specific components

This section is for documentation of specific components of the existing core Moodle code. Discussion of components that are under discussion or in development can be found in the Developer notes or on the Roadmap.
