We just had an impressive user conference in Barcelona, and the engagement by and towards our integrations was incredible!
1. Moodlemoot Global 2023
The conference brought together 700 people from all over the world, and commercial integrations supported the conference by sponsoring it and being there to hear and talk to our users. From the 26 sponsors, 8 of them were part of our Certified Integrations' group and 14 more were tools that connect to Moodle, so all in all, an amazing contribution to this beautiful get-together!
2. Plugin directory
We have started work on the inclusion of LTI integrations and other integration types in or alongside our plugin directory. The final shape that this will take is still unknown, but if you'd like to share feedback with us regarding this, we'll be very happy to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Certified Integration Partner Day
Besides our user conference, we also had our very first Certified Integration Partner Day last week. It was fantastic to exchange with a group of passionate advocates of educational technology, some of which are open source, all of which support the Moodle project. A few great ideas came out of this extended meeting, and also a lot of exchanges that make our work stronger and more resilient to the ever changing nature of technology and education.
Here is proof of the fantastic team of people that constitute our Certified Integrations, together with three of our extraordinary Product Leadership team: Marie Achour, Brett Dalton and Matt Porritt.
4. Did anyone say generative AI yet?
Obviously, as AI became hot a few months ago, a few companies contacted us with ideas and suggestions that we've never heard of again. However, there are two great exceptions to that: Nolej.io has started creating a Moodle plugin for their automatic course creation tool and DataCurso.com, developed by the Moodle Partner Industria e-Learning, is a tool to support course creation with a pedagogical approach.
That's it for this month, I hope you're having a great back-to-school in the Northern hemisphere
