March 26, 2024 By Lucy Sherwood

At MoodleMoot Global 2023 in Barcelona, Marvin D. Hoffland and Mario Wehr of FH Kärnten gemeinnützige Gesellschaft mbH (Carinthia University of Applied Sciences) presented on how they used Moodle App at their university. We caught up with them to discuss further.


Marvin, who handles Moodle administration and course development, and Mario, responsible for technical aspects, delve into the objectives, challenges, and solutions encountered in creating an app that serves as a campus service system and not just a learning platform.

They highlight the importance of providing a one-stop shop for students, integrating various functionalities like course information, events, transportation services, exam results, and more. Utilising the Moodle app’s hybrid cross-platform framework, they explain how they achieved this integration, leveraging technologies like Angular, Ionic, HTML, JavaScript, and CSS.

Their mobile app, designed to streamline campus services, offers students and lecturers a user-friendly interface with features like event schedules, course evaluations, grade overviews, and access to transcripts. With a focus on avoiding the maintenance of separate native mobile apps and ensuring simplicity and efficiency in development and usage, Marvin and Mario provide valuable insights into their innovative approach to enhancing accessibility, customisability, and effectiveness in campus management processes through their Moodle-integrated mobile app.
