Bringing students together with open source technology

August 26, 2019 By Júlia Verdaguer

Group messaging in Moodle provides learners and instructors with a dynamic, immediate way to communicate with each other. We launched the group messaging feature with the Moodle 3.6 release enabling users to collaborate simultaneously with each other rather than one-to-one. This powerful feature has been a driving factor for a class of students in their school in India.  

Recently, Tamarind Tree, a collective from India that works towards social justice, open knowledge and open technology, shared a beautiful story of how a class of students in their School is using group messaging within their Moodle site. Because one of their classmates cannot attend school currently due to family circumstances, the students are using group messaging to update their friend about what’s happening in class and encouraging her to come back to school as soon as possible.
