Set and forget Moodle with RSS[edit source]

Perhaps my heavy use of RSS into Moodle would be worth a mention. Set up Moodle with feeds, then forget it and continue working in the open: that example is not an active teaching unit, but with a few added things like more prescribed assignments and activities, I don't see why it couldn't be a model...

Alternatives to Moodle[edit source]

For the Dutch wikiversity, I'm talking to someone from Is it smart to explore this platform? The people of are also thinking about open content. Is it possbile to experiment with moodle? I'm not very technical so setting up a Moodle environment is propably something I'm not capable off.

Hi Tim, If your learning institution doesn't have its own learning management system (LMS), then partnering with an online LMS provider could be a good option. I'm interested to learn more about what functionality Khan Academy can provide. The Wikimedia Foundation sister projects provide a good, open platform for learning content. But they don't provide good mechanisms for tracking enrolled participants and for providing private assessment submission and grades etc. Hence the need also for an LMS. Moodle does require technical capacity to install, manage, modify, etc. Your thoughts? -- Jtneill - Talk - c 01:06, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
Hi Jtneill, I'm working for an ICT company but we don't have a LMS. An online LMS probably will cost money. I want to create generic learning modules which can be used by Dutch companies. Cheers, Tim Timboliu (discusscontribs) 12:50, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
Wikiversity can provide a platform for hosting generic learning modules. What else do you need e.g., that an LMS offers? -- Jtneill - Talk - c 01:57, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
What I want is something like In my opinion this platform provides a far more richer learning experience than the wikiversity, which provides flat content. Timboliu (discusscontribs) 14:04, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
I had a quick look at Khan Academy - it seems to be video-based? What are the key features/functions it offers that you want to use? Here's an example of how I teach university subjects using Wikiversity combinged with other platforms SRDP general overview. Sincerely, James -- Jtneill - Talk - c 23:20, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
