I've just finished the first draft of the Crowdfunding section of the MoodleNet white paper. Please do take a look at it and add your comments and feedback! This part explains the role of crowdfunding and how it is related to membership and subscription options for supporting individuals and organisations providing content, products, and services.
There three recommendations for Project MoodleNet from this section:
- Recommendation #15: Project MoodleNet should provide a way for educators to be recognised for the contributions they make to the community, including in financial ways.
- Recommendation #16: To avoid advertising within Project MoodleNet, members should be able to support the development of new features through membership and/or subscription options.
- Recommendation #17: Project MoodleNet should encourage the development of OERs by educators through easy-to-use crowdfunding options.
Please do give your feedback either in this thread, or directly on the Google Doc: https://goo.gl/vwWRVD. Thanks in advance for your comments, support, and suggestions!
What's next? I'm going to revisiting the six scenarios outlined at the start of the white paper in light of the 17 recommendations made (so far!)
