Hi Jan,

I cannot speak for WMF Engineering, but if you are looking for an (open source) learning platform that could be integrated with MediaWiki (either in terms of using data from the MediaWiki API or databases or accessing Wikimedia user credentials), you should consider if an application installed on Labs and using OAuth for authentication/authorization [1] would meet your needs.

Thanks for very swift answers!

Follow up question: Is WMF in any way looking into making MediaWiki more suitable as a learning platform (think Moodle or similar platforms) or would it be up to chapters or volunteers to make it happen?

Med vänliga hälsningar,

I think we should be very careful about any extension added to the
cluster - AFT5 is very complex, and if there are use cases that
require this kind of functionality, they should be examined
independently, rather than assuming AFT5 is the answer.
