Martin,

You're addressing the key issue, IMO, with MoodleNet -it's lack of focus on sharing Moodle courses. Sharing entire Moodle courses is what is desperately needed. 

What you're describing as a need is what is being created by the California Community College system so that they can share their OER courses via Canvas. It is also what is being created by the Minnesota State System so that they can share their OER courses via D2L Brightspace. It is what Schoology created so that the 40 OER courses created for

could be easily and quickly shared among the 206 participating Minnesota school districts which includes about 600,000 K12 students.

Moodle doesn't need to make itself into something it isn't. It is very good at being an LMS.

Hi both, MoodleNet is going to content-agnostic, and export collections of resources as MBZ files. As such, it is entirely possible to share resources that unpack into courses.


(Dan, I'd respectfully ask you to refrain from repeatedly sharing the same content, and in particular the video you have posted many times now. Some may see this as spamming the forum)

Doug,

My previous post was directed to Martin, a new member of the discussion, who had likely not seen any of the previous posts where I linked to the Minnesota Partnership for Collaborative Curriculum. I am indeed guilty of promoting wider awareness of the free, teacher created, standards aligned OER curriculum that is specifically designed for use in Moodle. I'm even guilty of creating a non-profit corporation registered in Minnesota (the home of SPAM) dedicated to providing professional development for teachers to become more proficient at using OER with Moodle.

Hi Dan,

Thanks for the reply. 

It's good to hear that similar ideas have already been established successfully.

But as I understand those projects created the courses (contents) centrally and then imported them to the local sites.

In our project we would like to directly login to a partner site and participate in their course.
