I can understand your hesitancy Chris, mine too. The thing is, what is it that we, as individuals want to learn? I do not even know what I can learn. I know I will never understand string theory, nor the finer points of using the epee, but I can design a science experiment for a Yr 8 class and I am pretty handy in a knife fight... That is what I needed to know, but with Moodle, I just feel that I have approached this with that same "what do I need to know to get me out of immediate trouble" attitude. This implies I am really without a sufficient grasp of the big picture stuff, an overarching view of Moodle if you like.
For me, I suppose, I do not want to formalize too much of this, like you cannot answer questions in the forums until you complete these qualifications, that would make it too exclusive and run contrary to what I see as the spirit of Open Source. What I would like is a page that has an image on it that says at the start "If you want, these are all the things you can learn about Moodle." At the end it says something like: "Now you have gotten this far, have a think about how you might like to contribute to our Moodle Community." Of course, the choice always lies with the learner.
For one problem, could it be considered that some sort of template could be constructed for what the Community feels is an acceptable level of understanding of how to use Moodle by Students first? What is it that Students should know about Moodle? What features does the Community feel that Students should be familiar with? What features are most popular? Would that not then encourage Teachers to develop resources and activities using those features?
I know this is a little different to what I was thinking about earlier, but who's need is greater?
