The list shown below contains some of the most recent proposals that were submitted by members of the NED community like you. Want to put these ideas into action? We offer two options for plugin development.
Since 2003, various coalitions of individuals, schools and organisations have come together to fund the development of many of the plugins shown above. This “crowdfunding” model allows small players to develop complex plugins that are usually the domain of large companies and universities. There is no long-term commitment or group membership. When enough money is raised to fund a proposed idea, the process begins. The details of the development (i.e. which features get added or modified, interface layout, etc.) are decided by those who fund the work. Interested? Get in touch with us for more details.
We can work directly with you or your team to develop Moodle plugins to meet the unique needs of your school or organisation. Weather you are looking to create something completely new or modify an existing plugin, we have the experience and expertise to make it happen.
