The learning platform Moodle is being further developed in a joint collaboration project between Vienna University of Technology and the University of Vienna. The collaboration minimizes costs and effort: a combined team consisting of both TU Vienna and University of Vienna staff develops modules on a joint development server according to the quality guidelines of the Moodle core development, and carries out updates.
The software engineering team orientates themselves towards the biannual update cycles of the Moodle core system. This allows deploying Moodle for universities in a sustainable, long-term and stable manner - despite limited resources. In the future, further collaboration partners such as universities or universities of applied sciences shall benefit from this exchange.
