I recently created a survey for Grav Open Course Hub users, and I thought I would post it here too:
I recently tweeted a set of updated Grav Open Course Hub workflow diagrams, and I thought I would share them here:

With the release of the Open Course Hub 2.0 package, three example sites are included in the Course Hub Bootstrap theme’s _demo folder; basic, intermediate and advanced. Let’s take a brief look at the visual appearance and highlights of each example:
I recently tweeted a few highlights about the 2.0 release of the Open Course Hub and I thought I would share them here:
The Grav Open Course Hub supports a number of optional URL flags (i.e. parameters) to better support embedding Hub content into other LMSs such as Canvas or Moodle:
chromeless - hide all global navigation elements
summaryonly - display the summary of a blog post
hidepagetitle - hide the title of a page
Long on my to-do list was to further explore how Grav Open Course Hub content could be displayed within the popular open source Moodle LMS. Curious about the initial results? You can explore a live demo at paulhibbitts.net/moodle/course/view.php?id=2 and view some draft docs at learn.hibbittsdesign.org/coursehub/integrating-grav-with-moodle.

Having just finished my 20th offering (in 20 years, how did that happen?) of CMPT-363 at SFU I will be getting back to posting more frequently about my on-going work with Grav in the field of education… stay tuned.
In the meanwhile, I await word for my most recent Grav-related proposal for the Festival of Learning 2018 entitled Delivering a Better Experience by Using the Open, Collaborative and Flexible Grav CMS – Inside or Outside of your LMS.
You can see the results of my further integration of Grav Course Hub within an LMS (in this case Canvas) at canvas.sfu.ca/courses/34140/

I am excited to be part of SFU’s DEMOfest this year, where I will be presenting and discussing with my fellow educators the advantages of using the Canvas LMS with Grav:
Canvas Assessment Strengths
- Assignment submissions and rubrics
- Surveys, quizzes, and graded discussion forums
- Multi-course calendar and gradebook
A safe place for student assignments and data, and where most of our students are!
Grav Content Management System Strengths
- Free open source software (FOSS) project
- A modern flat-file (no database) CMS, which supports custom page types and modular content
- The platform-independent format Markdown is supported, and pages remain as individual files
For tech-savvy educators a modern and flexible platform under their full control!
