The blog for official press releases, has announced that Moodle 3.4, schedule for November this year, will ship with the Inspire plugin ready out of the box. The announcement came along with an interview with Project Inspire leader, Moodle HQ analytics researcher Elizabeth Dalton.

An early version of the Inspire plugin has been available since March. It features an analytics engine that uses your organization’s student information to offer numerical probabilities on the event of a student dropping out of the course. The engine also learns from anonymized information submitted to Moodle voluntarily.

On the interview, Dalton shares her excitement about the latest developments, as well as about the warm reception and continuous, high-quality feedback the community has offered. Ideas and suggestion have come from every side and aspect, from the technicalities of data gathering, collection and processing, to larger issues about ethics, accountability of analytics tools, and privacy.

About upcoming new features coming with Inspire for Moodle 3.4, Dalton explains the idea of matching course section to time dedication, to follow closely on behavior and provide more accurate estimates. But to make the engine more useful, a lot more data is still needed, that encompasses more Moodle use scenarios.

Dalton encourages all Moodlers interested in staying closer with ongoing Inspire’s developments, to look at its issue code in the Moodle Tracker.
