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 1.6 - Beta expected late February 2006

A new activity module that allows collaborative collection of structured data, useful for many things!
  • LAMS - LAMS Foundation
