I often think of how it would be nice to have an instance dedicated to K-12 educators. Scholar.social is nice but more geared towards college level academics.

I don't even know if we have enough K-12 teachers on here to merit having such an instance, though.

And with my luck, I'd have to start it myself.

I don't want to have to manage other teachers. I've been Department Chair and I don't like that job.

@crash there is this #moodle net idea (A federated social space for educators) but it does not seem to get traction

@openrisk As in the Moodle LMS? I like Moodle but that seems a little overpowered compared to something like a Mastodon instance.

@crash its a separate effort (built by the same team that builds the LMS) that will somehow federate. At some point a demo instance was live but now they seem working on a next iteration docs.moodle.org/dev/MoodleNet

@openrisk I see what you mean about traction. I could be reading this wrong but it looks like no code changes since August and no announcements since before then.

It's a shame.


@openrisk is right that a re-boot is coming soon. The first version was aiming to be a part of the mastodon/fediverse, but I'm not sure if that functionality ever appeared. It's mainly about curating OER resources with direct sharing from moodle sites.
