The big picture (重点)
Working on the Moodle learning platform involves millions of moving parts, and every release generally includes hundreds of improvements. However, there are four main goals that we are focussing on for the next two years:
User experience and flow (用户体验和流程)
The entire user experience from onboarding, into daily teaching/learning and expert customisation of Moodle is the core value of what makes Moodle useful or not in the real world, in fully online and blended modes.
While we're working on hundreds of smaller, annoying issues, we are also doing some major re-thinking around what an LMS should be in the next decade and beyond as a tool to empower educators and learners.
Enabling all our developers(给开发者赋能)
Our significant community of engaged developers are an amazing group of over 1000 people - many of them make a living being part of the Moodle community.
We are of course working on ways to make Moodle programming easier and better, with better training and support as well as improved APIs, plugins, integrations and support for modern technologies.
However, a particularly exciting initiative is the new Moodle Plugins Service, due in 2021, which will provide an "app store" experience on which all developers can build financial sustainability for their work, while teachers will have easier access to use hundreds of new plugins in their courses via the web interface, without needing to convince their admins to install code. This will help the entire plugins ecosystem.
Better integrations between Moodle products (完善Moodle产品之间的整合)
The current Moodle products already integrate with each other, of course, but there is much more to be done to make them work together more seamlessly, as part of one platform, so that our users have a better experience and also so that they become more aware of solutions to their problems.
Better integration with the world (完善Moodle与其他系统的整合)
Moodle is never used alone, and it is a part of many ecosystems at many levels. We must connect to all kinds of other systems, we must of course comply with new legislation such as the GDPR, Accessibility and much more.
In particular though, we are committed to helping to promote Open EdTech and to work closely with qualified Open EdTech products and major stakeholders to design and build an open architecture for a long-term future.
