Hi Griet,

I should have chosen my words more carefully in my original post.

It seems there is interest in giving WebPA an overhaul, if that happens it would still be worth integrating with Canvas.

As we speak, we are working on a connection between WEBPA and our Canvas through the API.

 

So this message means we should stop this since WEBPA will not be operational in the near future? Could you let us know?

 

 

Anyway, it would be interesting to have a plugin (with similar functionality as WebPA) that is LTI-compatible with multiple LMSs such as Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle etc.

There is interest to revive an old project that involves peer evaluation.  We used ipeer for the MVP, but it can be anything as long as it's an LTI. That way it can port into Canvas, Noodle, D2L etc.

Currently it is on hold as we find funding.

If anyone wants to collaborate please feel free to connect.

I have actually started updating the core code of WebPA to fully support PHP 7 and would be looking for testers for this in due course.

I think longer term, the application probably does need a rewrite but updating to support PHP 7 should suffice for now,

It would be very interesting to hear your reasons for wanting to write a replacement for WebPA, rather than updating the existing code.

But if you are intent on producing a replacement, have you considered writing it as an LTI Tool Provider?  In that way you could support other VLEs and widen the pool of potential contributors.  That is, unless the Basic Outcomes and Membership (Names and Role Provisioning) services are insufficient for your needs.

Hi All,

Regrettably it seems WebPA has reached end of life and we need to find a replacement.

Having looked at the available options we are now looking into writing a Moodle plugin to replicate the workflow and algorithm of WebPA (Workshop does not do what we need).

I am posting here to find out if there is any interest from other Moodle using institutions interested in contributing to this either in terms of functionality / requirements or development work?

Thanks, Jeremy
