- Example: Bb has a box on their main page called "Solutions for". Evidently they think their prospective users are HigherEd, K-12 (obviously American), Professional Ed and Commerce.
This prospective user viewpoint also relates to demo.moodle.org and http://moodle.org/course/view.php?id=34. These are not good demonstrations for a prospective user (ie a student who wants to learn about Moodle). For example, the focus/thesis should be on Moodle (with all due respect, not English Lit nor Physics). id=34 at least has some interesting history, but demo.moodle is stuck back in 1.4 and does not show an administrator or teacher anything about grades, groups and other 1.9 features in action!
Moodle.org needs more resources devoted to these projects. These things remind me of institutional plant maintenance. When the budget is tight, "we can put off painting the building that contains our science lab we just upgraded, until next year." How many perspective students are NOT interested in walking into an unmarked building with peeling paint, despite having the latest and greatest inside?
And here I am communicating on a forum, using Moodle and I think that is great.
