Three Sessions for Moodle Developers from MootIEUK 2020!

This blog post revisits three of the popular sessions under the topic ‘Development’ recorded for The UK & Ireland Moodlemoot, 2020.

Getting Features into Moodle Core

Want to add new features to your Moodle Core?

Look no further! In this presentation, Davo Smith from Synergy Learning gives a simplified step-by-step guide for getting new features onto Moodle Core.
Davo exemplifies the process using a real feature that he helped to add to Moodle 3.8, which provides the ability to filter the dashboard course overview using a course custom field- MDL-66017.

Who Develops Plug-Ins?

In this presentation Titus Senior Developer Marcus Green gives the low-down on Moodle plug-ins! Marcus discusses all things plug-ins. From who it is that actually develops them, to how to spot if a plug-in can be supported and enhanced and if it makes a difference whether they are a freemium or paid service.


If you are thinking about evaluating plug-in options for your Moodle site, or just curious about the background of Moodle plu-ins check this presentation out!
