Moodle.org community manager, Helen Foster announced today that Moodle will not be participating in the Google Summer of Code this year,

this year we’ve decided not to submit an application for Moodle to be a mentoring organisation in order that we can focus on the Moodle 2.0 release. There’s still lots to be done if we’re to meet the release timetable in the Road-map! (http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=143919)

Since 2006 the GSOC has contributed to many areas of Moodle development and has allowed Moodle.org to mentor many young developers throughout the world.  Project areas in the past have focused on core Moodle functions such as the blog and chat features as well as specific areas such as

  • working on docs
  • creating new question types
  • usability issues and
  • IU/UX improvements

Despite the acknowledged focus on the release of Moodle 2.0 this is an unfortunate development for both the Moodle Community and students interested in the popular LMS.
