Moodle MOOT presentation in Dublin, Ireland on May 12th 2015
There is a common misconception that the Moodle platform is inflexible and/or ugly. How far can you push the boundaries of Moodle without core hacks? Can Moodle be beautiful? This presentation looks at the development of a stunning MOOC site for United for Wildlife and discusses some of the hurdles and successes faced.
The first MOOC for United for Wildlife will be released in early May 2015 on a dedicated platform and has an array of plugins with improvements to; UI/UX with the theme, consistent incourse navigation, additional and modified My page blocks, custom authentication, custom login, badges block and a visually bold grid course format.
This presentation is a case-study showing what is possible with Moodle, using the plugin framework and no core hacks.
