Back in 2011 Tim wrote an enlightening blog post.
This was a great source of inspiration for some of us.
I took the liberty to borrow his title because since a few hours I know what I want to build next.
I feel so stupid for not having this idea years ago, because in fact it has been floating in my mind for years (even before I learned about Moodle) but I didn't saw it was there.
First, let me remember you that in fact all my Moodle contributions have been to improve on other ideas, maintaining plugins when they were seeking for a new maintainer, fixing bugs, I don't think I ever created something brand new.
So maybe this idea also isn't brand new and somebody has already done that.
What I want to do is a Moodle website were teachers from all countries could exchange questions.
Of course Moodle will run this website and it will surely require a dedicated activity module (but the question creation activity can provide some code to create this module) and I think this is quite doable.
You can object that moodle.net has already some questions to share but what I envision would be more general
- contributed question types would be available so for instance teachers can try and download gapfill, Stack or formulas questions
- the feature to be able to try a question before deciding to download it is important the data module used on moodle.net doesn't permit that
- When people wrote about a question in the Quiz forum they could link to that question so that other can try it live.
One last thing but very important to m is that it should be entirely free !
