Presentations Schedule

9:00 AM  – Optimizing the Moodle documentation publishing process with Scenari (Dokiel) 

Presenter: Marc Couture, Moodle Admin, Université de Sherbrooke

At the Université de Sherbrooke, upgrading to Moodle 4.1 and the ensuing major work to update our existing documentation led us to re-evaluate our online help and internal training materials.  This re-evaluation was also made necessary by upper management’s decision not to renew our Confluence public license (Atlassian), the platform we previously used to publish our online documentation. After some research, we chose the Scenari open-source platform and its Dokiel documentation model: 

(https://doc.scenari.software/SCENARIchain@6/en/https://doc.scenari.software/Dokiel/en/). 

In this presentation, we will take a quick look at our experience so far, which has been very positive overall over the past year in which we migrated all our documentation to the Scenari platform. We’ll also present the next steps in our transition to Scenari, with plans to extend its use to helping faculty collaborate and publish educational resources.
