O akci

This hackathon is a joint collaboration between the European Commission Directorate-General for Informatics and United Nations Office of Information, Communications and Technology.

It will be the first of a series of hackathons under the initiative of OSS4SDGs – Open Source Soſtware for Sustainable Development Goals.

The goal of the first hackathon will be to tackle SDG 4 Quality Education. The selected open-source community will be Moodle since the UNICEF platform developed for India is based on this software.

The Challenge

Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, learners from all over the world have been forced to study from home. Many of these learners in developing countries had to abandon their studies due to a lack of appropriate digital learning infrastructure. Even those with access to stable infrastructure may face challenges to access Learning Management Systems (LMS) platforms. Within this framework, the Moodle mobile app and existing video conferencing plugins have been playing key roles in expanding the footprint of digital learning possibilities. However, there are still some challenges and areas for improvement, so we are looking for proactive ideas and solutions in these areas to help improve performance, expand video conferencing functionality, and consequently reach more students. We therefore propose two challenges:

The Mobile App Challenge

Improve or extend existing Moodle plugins (or create your own) for the Moodle mobile app, so that users can access all Moodle  functionalities via mobile devices.

The VideoConf Challenge

Improve or extend existing Moodle plugins for video conferencing so that users can further easily switch to virtual classes with little effort.
