This year, for the first time ever Moodle HQ is coordinating a capital campaign to 1. raise [...]

14 Plugins and growing for Atto Text Editor

One of the great things about TinyMCE was that it was very extensible and came with loads of features already built in. Moodle's own text editor released with 2.7 is comparatively light in features, but that is slowly changing. Recently released for Atto was the "More Font Colors" plugin which is exactly what it sounds like. Here's a list of all of the Atto Plugins that you can use (each can be [...]

“Goodbye” addon for Moodle provides users self-deletion option

This would be a great addition to Moodle.org, one of the largest Moodle sites in the world (but with no way to be removed from the site unless you're spam or a bad-actor). Bas Brands is the developer/maintainer of the local plugin which allows Moodle users to choose to delete their own accounts. For any self-registration site, whether offering free or paid services (through courses or [...]
