Paper presented at Moodlemoot Ireland & UK, Dublin, Ireland, 2-4 April 2012

Usually we think one of Moodle's great assets is its worldwide community. However, IMHO you may question whether the community as it is organized today can cope with future challenges.

IMHO what we need is:

1. an organized way to give the Moodle community a voice;
2. an open discussion on what is going on in the e-learning field and how we perceive these developments are valuable for our teaching/learning and have their impact on the position of Moodle.
3. an open discussion on the Moodle characteristics that are appreciated most by its users.
4. an assessment of alternative roadmaps for development.

As an example, the Open University has given various presentations on earlier Moodlemoots on the way this large educational "factory"organizes course development and has changed their own instance of Moodle (3000 changes, I once heard, if I remember correctly). I really want to know more about what they are doing. And I really would like to use that if it is more appropriate than Moodle’s standard edition. Or even better, if we agree on such changes, make them the standard edition. Of course such issues require careful discussion of advantages and disadvantages, and careful decision-making. A better organized community could initiate and facilitate this.

What do you think about it?
