Hello. I'm new to the community, and I'm very lost. I have a few question that might seem simple but you'd help me a lot.


We are trying to implement an oembed filter plugin to use on blackboard but we don't know where to start


Moodle has such filter

Moodle plugins directory: oEmbed Filter


And according to the plugin matrix we can use the same plugin on blackboard?

Plugin Matrix - Blackboard Help

The moodlerooms confuse me. Is blackboard based on moodle?


Ok, so next step would be to


1. Contribute to the repository to extend the plugin and add our service to the list of accepted services.

        The benefit of this is that we can kill 2 birds with 1 stone and the plugin will work both for moodle and blackboard. Does anyone has any idea how we can contribute to this plugin?

2. Create a new plugin based on this plugin with the same goal

        The bad part is that if one user wants to use our service they have to install our plugin without the benefit of all the other services. Question is how do I publish a plugin for blackboard?


Any help is really appreciated. Thanks!
