I think the best part of your post was the bullets at the end. Those four criteria would make for a much better model than what I think Moodle has been based on. I agree that Moodle is content centric (that’s why it’s valuable to so many) but at the same time I feel that when too much emphasis is placed on the content our teachers are students miss the point of learning. A rating system with the best content filtered to the top is definitely a fresh approach…now if only we can get that filter started…

Thanks Joseph,

Yes, the post was a bit of a ramble… I’m not sure that Moodle is by-default content-centric, but it certainly how people use it - because it’s so easy to do so.

Thanks Figaro,

I hadn’t realised how easy it was to crack MD5-hashed passwords. Although, I believe this is only possible if the passwords use simple words and do not mix lower and upper case letters.

Just adding a password policy and tweaking the teachers’ capabilities in Moodle would solve a lot of this.

Very interesting ideas and thoughts about Moodle and Elgg.

I have done some reflection on Moodle here, which might be of interest:

As for halfway house, why not just add a Elgg in Moodle, just like what they did with LAMS :)

Now, that would be a good start :)

Cheers and thanks for sharing your VLE frustrations and reflections.
