Great interview with the creator of Moodle

The original designer of Moodle. He's a genius.

"When designing Moodle, I wanted a set of values that could act as a compass:

  • everyone should be a teacher as well as a learner
  • if you understand the context of a person, you are able to teach them better.
  • a learning environment should be flexible; as you learn more about the people in it, you're able to change it
  • learn by doing and constructing and learn by engagement"

It's so refreshing to hear such solid learning theory from a software developer.
