16 projects submitted by members of the Moodle Users Association are currently competing for 10 available slots over at the MUA.
MUA was created to give any user the opportunity to have a voice in Moodle’s next features and design. It offers membership categories with fees proportional to the number of votes. It is an international organization, different to the existing national Moodle associations.
Any member can submit a project. They then undergo several stages of voting. Projects become more robust and detailed until the final round. At each stage of the process, the submitting member is responsible for the project. If chosen for funding, they must also handle deployment to completion. If not chosen, owners can submit the project for the next Cycle.
The ten projects that earn a slot will be reviewed by Moodle HQ. If they clear, they will receive funding in order of voting, until all funds are allocated. In the previous MUA Development Cycles, one project has been funded each time.
Active candidacies feature:
Advanced grading interface
Extended anonymity and user disguises
Expanded Question Bank management options
Improved notifications for students.
