What is DD?

DD sets up an identity provider and many apps providing a cohesive user experience considering schools and universities as the main use-case.

The project provides an integrated solution to handle the common environment in education:

  • Classrooms: A Moodle instance with custom theme and custom plugins
  • Cloud drive: A Nextcloud instance with custom theme and custom plugins
  • Documents: A document viewer and editor integrated with Nextcloud
  • Web pages: A Wordpress instance with custom theme and custom plugins
  • Pad: An Etherpad instance integrated with Nextcloud
  • Conferences: BigBlueButton integrated with Moodle and Nextcloud (needs a standalone host)
  • Forms: A forms Nextcloud plugin

Administration interface

The project includes an administration interface that allows to easily manage users and groups and keep these in sync between applications.

To easily migrate and insert users and groups to the system there are also two provided imports:

  • From Google Admin Console as a JSON dump
  • From a CSV file

Why does git history start here?

Why does git history start here? A lot of work went into stabilising the code and cleaning the repo before the public announcement on the 1st International Congress on Democratic Digital Education and Open Edtech. Using that version as a clean slate got us to the repo you see here, where changes will be reviewed before going in and anyone is welcome.
