Interview With Martin Dougiamas On Changes To Moodle Community This Year

Phil Hill, Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment, Sept 07, 2015
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Good tough interview of Moodle founder and CEO Martin Dougiamas by Phil Hill based on changes around Moodle in the wake of recent acquisitions by Blackboard. "The recent Blackboard acquisitions don’t bring any benefits to Moodle as a whole," says Dougiamas, emphasizing that the core mission  of Moodle remains unchanged and non-commercial. "We are an organisation that is completely focussed on supplying a true open source alternative for the world without resorting to venture capital and the profit-driven thinking that comes with that," he says, "we see our mission as being *servants* to the community of teachers and learners who need Moodle and quality open source Free software. Our core duty is to give away the software we develop."
