Below is a screen shot of how 'Moodler' might look


A spokesperson for Twitter has confirmed that they have spoken to Mr Dougiamas regarding the Purchase of the Virtual Learning Environment for an undisclosed amount, the deal is to include Martin's personal twitter account @moodler

Mr Dougiamas has declined the sale of Moodle on the grounds that twitter would also want his twitter account @moodler back

Professor Pilar Lofo from the Leeds City College Virtual Learning & Business committee has gone on the record stating that it would be disastrous if Moodle was sold to twitter as users would spend all day checking tweets and not actually getting any work done.

Would you mind if you could check your tweets and assignments at the same time? Justin Beiber would agree.
