SOURCE: MarketWatch

Blackboard Inc. announced two separate open source contributions of Moodle code from Moodle Partners NetSpot and Moodlerooms, including a completely redesigned assignment module which updates one of the most commonly used tools in the Moodle system.

The new assignment module, developed by Australia-based NetSpot, has been included in the newest release of the Moodle’s “core” software, Moodle 2.3, released globally to users in June. NetSpot developed the module in close partnership with the Moodle HQ development team and a consortium of Australian universities, greatly enhancing Moodle’s ability to manage electronic submissions and simplifying its use for educators and students.

The Baltimore-based Moodlerooms team has made Flexpage, a tool for organizing the layout of materials and content on a course page, available as open source code to the Moodle community. The tool helps educators and instructional designers create more engaging and visually appealing courses by streamlining the organization and presentation of their content.
