Moodle & Wikiversity - new Moodle plugin interfaces with MediaWiki

Sumana Harihareswara-2
https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Education_Portal/Newsletter/April_2013/Wikiversity_and_Moodle

"Moodle is a free and open source learning management system (LMS).
James Neill has made some valuable contributions about how Moodle can be
used in conjunction with Wikiversity as a platform for open education.
To minimise the need for exporting/importing content from one learning
management system (LMS) class site to another and then to another
institution Wikiversity may be used as an open educational content
repository.

A moodle-plugin has been developed by Jan Luca (German Wikiversity) to
include content into Moodle hosted on Wikiversity by using a simple tag:
[Include-WV]<URL>[/Include-WV]. The plug-in can be tested on
http://sandbox.wikiversity.wmflabs.org/moodle. For further information
contact Jan Luca or Wvk. This move is part of an initiative to restart
German Wikiversity that seeks to invite new contributors to the project."

Thanks for working on this, Jan Luca and Wyk! I see the code is at
https://github.com/JanLuca/Moodle_Wikiversity_plugin .  Are you looking
for help of any sort -- design, testing, localisation, etc.?

Re: Moodle & Wikiversity - new Moodle plugin interfaces with MediaWiki

Jan Luca
Hallo Sumana,

thank you for your support. I have added Wvk in CC so he will get the
messages, too.

The main part of the Moodle-plugin is ready but I have thought about some
others things that we could do:

1. Create a Wikiversity Moodle-theme
2. Create a MW-extension which shows some information about a Moodle-course
in a wiki page
3. Add another admin for Moodle and the Labs project (wikiversity-sandbox)

About localisation: I already planned to contact the people from
translatewiki.net to ask if they could add my plugin

About testing: http://sandbox.wikiversity.wmflabs.org/moodle is open for
everybody to use and test it. I would be happy when as many as possible
would test the plugin and report bugs to me.

Best regards,
Jan

Jan, thank you for working on this!  If you are willing to mentor a
student or new contributor in working on items 1 or 2, maybe you could
add some details about what would be desired and add them to
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Mentorship_programs/Possible_projects .

Thanks,
Sumana

Re: Moodle & Wikiversity - new Moodle plugin interfaces with MediaWiki

Jan Luca
Hallo Sumana,

I have created a section for creating a Moodle-extension for MW:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Mentorship_programs/Possible_projects#MediaWi
ki-Moodle_extension

It would be nice if somebody else would help with item 1 because I'm not the
best designer. There should be people with more experience than me.

Best regards,
Jan

Ok, at least with you there is enough technical expertise to get the
project going if an interested student shows up.

Please create a related enhancement request in Bugzilla, under Mediawiki
extensions >> Extension requests, and link it from the wiki entry.

Thank you for contributing your skills mentoring newcomers!
