For those of you who were at BETT you probably already know this but I thought I'd let you know that if you are being pushed to use Uniservity and their poor excuse for a VLE at the moment, they will be moving over to Moodle design modules soonish, so be aware it will all change very soon.
Thank god for that! This is exactly what we as an LA have been asking for and they've finally listened, now to the other 50 things.....
Hope this helps,
They are replacing their limited design structure with the moodle design structure. This mostly relies on floating modules that theoretically can be created by anyone and moved with a Click and drag feature, which would be big improvement from their wysiwyg editors.
As they were showing it off with a moodle header I am assuming they have just paid Moodle for the code.
They are saying Summer for it's release, but I am not sure how realible that is and how smoothly it will run in after the MIS integration saga we had.
Yes, as far as the guys I spoke to about it were aware it will be a fully functional moodle design. If that is true then you will be able to use all moodle modules and plugins.
So uniservity is now moodle? Or atleast built on top of Moodle?
Id love to see more!
Yeah could you confirm that? Uniservity is moving to moodle and away from Sharepoint? Will be funny as our LEA has just gone with Uniservity and we pulled otu to go with Moodle, arf arf.
The uniservity front end already looks very moodle-like, can you remember who you spoke to at BETT regarding the Uniservity change?
We also ditched university to go with moodle
this would be most interesting because moodle is published under the GPL - which would mean that Uniservity would also have to be published under GPL if they have used the moodle code
so we can all use uniservity for free ? (not that I want to, last time I looked it sucked)
Interesting. I didn't pay too much attention to the Uniservity stand as what I saw on the screens didn't look any different to what they offer at the moment.
I spoke to Ben Sills and a couple of sales guys, can't remember what they were called, they were showing a limited version off on a couple laptops on the edge of the stand with a couple of guys giving a brief description about it.
When I mentioned it to Ben because of my disbelief, he confirmed that this is the way they are going.
As I said before: Here's hoping!
