I'd like to let you know about the major initiative we are planning for Moodle LMS 4.0, which is due late next year (see the Moodle Roadmap).
This release will focus primarily on UX (user experience).
Of course, UX has always been important in a project like Moodle, and every one of our 6-monthly major releases has included UX-focussed improvements, but because we've given ourselves a longer time-frame for our 4.0 (18 months), we'll be able to make some really major strides forward in the overall experience of Moodle, areas like navigation, task management, course creation and more, bringing our thousands of community plugins along for the journey. As well as the big things, we'll be fixing lots of "low hanging fruit" and long-standing smaller problems.
To help guide this process, we've been expanding our UX team, including an experienced new UX Lead. Her name is Candice Deimer and you'll be seeing a lot more from her here soon!
To kick things off and help us prioritise what to work on, we've prepared this very short survey (it should take you just a few minutes) to collect initial thoughts from everyone who uses Moodle (educators, students, admins, designers and more).
Please fill this out and share it widely among your networks:
Moodle UX Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/88T3YTL
There will be a lot more user research happening afterwards, and if you'd like to help, please make sure to say so in this survey so we can talk to you.
I hope you're all keeping safe around COVID-19.
Cheers and thanks!
