First Voting Round Open At The Moodle Users Association's January Project Development Cycle

If you are a member of the Moodle Users Association, missing your opportunity to vote in the current edition of MUA’s Project Development Cycle risks letting just a few votes decide what’s best for the whole community. This is why MUA’s Shannon Johnson is encouraging everyone to cast their vote. Voting can also be a chance to exchange ideas about Moodle and its features, or to spark your imagination and gain courage to submit your own project in July!

Access the MUA site with your membership credentials, then head out to this page to cast your vote. Feel free to study the projects closely and make your questions and comments in the Forums. If your inquiries might be better off answered by technical experts, visit the project’s page on the Moodle Tracker. Voting will continue to take place as usual on the MUA website.

The first round of voting for the Moodle Users Association Project Development Cycle 2018 – January to June will run until Thursday, March 22nd (time uncertain). Your membership tier will determine the amount of votes you have available, which you can distribute across projects as you see fit.
