I'm shopping for (trying to make up my mind, that is) for a Master's Thesis project, and would like base it on Moodle. My work already involves a lot of Moodle specific customisations, so I don't need financing, just a direction
One thing that I already started was a metadata
based material repository. There exists a few of these, but my angle was to provide a dead simple upload
(no required fields, just the file), extract some of the metadata fields semi-automatically from the material (google
way, but obviously on a miniscule scale only) and then emphasize the re-structuring and labeling/tagging of the material. A bit like flickr meet's wikipedia... just a tiny bit
But it got buried under all that metadata.
Another, a bit smaller, thing is an export to a visual format. There was a small scale implementation of this announced here in April, but I'd like to take it much further, exporting a Moodle course to a full standalone web site, with the more interactive parts as separate backup's/downloads and so forth. Maybe some of that metadata stuffed in here and there too for academic sugar.
The "some small projects" page mentioned Moodle wide search. There might be something there, just need an angle other than the obvious practicality, that's the pain of these academic things.
Also the My Moodle is being developed, maybe refactoring the forum posts and other Moodle resources for a personal take on the personalisation/blogging/My Moodle...
As it's my Thesis I can't co-operate in the actual code. I'm not pushing it to anywhere, but would it not to be a complete waste of time (other than graduating of course, which is a definitive plus
Edit: I posted on this forum as I'm looking for a coding task, not social innovation
