Premium Plugins and Themes for Moodle

Currently a very important forum thread is live on Moodle forums about having a premium plugins and themes section. The thread was started by Justin Hunt and involves active replies from Martin Dougiamas, David Mudrak, Gareth J Barnard and other fellow moodlers.

The forum thread is basically a discussion about having a premium subscription model for plugins and themes based on the popularity, number of installs, number of ratings etc.

There are many moodlers who are in favor of having a premium subscription model but many are also opposing it as Moodle is released under GPL and people are using it because of “free of cost” tag.
