Top 5 Moodle 2.6 Features/Changes

Top 5 Moodle 2.6 Features/Changes | Are you a Moodler? | Scoop.it

 

Moodle 2.6 is coming very soon, if you haven’t tried it out you might want to jump over to QA.moodle.net to explore a little and get your feet wet. There is a laundry list of new features, changes, enhancements, fixes and improved usability over in the release notes: http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Moodle_2.6_release_notes.

 

Below you’ll find 5 of my favorite new features, changes or enhancements and each, in my opinion, goes a long way in improving the usability of Moodle.

 

1. Performance: first and foremost 2.6 should be a faster and less resource hungry site to run. “Many important changes have been made to improve Moodle’s performance: a new sessions infrastructure with 100% support that adds a new memcached session handler and improves the existing ones; OPcache support; changes to reduce memory usage and lots of new cache definitions to reduce database queries by using fast cache stores.”

Maria Zappa Kasapidi's insight:

Η καλή εμφάνιση ενός e-learning μαθήματος δεν μετράει απλά... έχει τεράστια σημασία.

Ο εισηγητής δεν είναι στην τάξη για να τραβήξει το ενδιαφέρον των σπουδαστών με ...τερτίπια. Ο σπουδαστής είναι μόνος του και αν δεν τον τραβήξει το περιβάλλον δεν θα μελετήσει το υλικό και φυσικά δεν θα επιλέξει άλλο μάθημα.

Here are some simple settings that any Moodle administrator can change from the Site Administration menu that will help to improve his/her Moodle site's performance. Some of these changes come at the cost of functionality, so sometimes you have to pick between a particular feature and performance (or a faster server), but often these settings are just enabled out of curiosity with no discernible reward other than a slower site.

David Nandigam's curator insight, November 28, 2013 5:27 AM

“Now I existed solely thanks to the quantum paradox, my brain a collection of qubits in quantum superposition, encoding truths and memories, imagination and irrationality in opposing, contradictory states that existed and didn't exist, all at the same time.” ― Robin Wasserman, Crashed

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, March 23, 1:13 PM
  • WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

    The  key factors are: Learners’ age, back ground knowledge, the purpose of learning, the learners’ circumstances (employed, students, unemployed, etc…)

  • DO YOU HAVE THE COURSE CURRICULUM?

    In many cases the course curriculum does exist, for example: National Curriculum, University course modules , In-house corporate training.

  • WHAT EXTERNAL PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS NEED TO BE MET?

    All external examination bodies provide an exam guide or syllabus which you have to insure your course will address them.

  • WHAT IS THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT?

    Would your learners attend any face to face classes? Do they access their course from home, work, or college? Do they work as a group or individuals?

Moodle Plugins Directory: Online Audio Recording | Are you a Moodler? | Scoop.it

Finally putting an end to the need for a streaming server (or a Java applet) to allow students to record audio clips for Moodle assignments, the Online Audio Recording assignment uses Flash (10.1+) to record audio from a microphone, convert it to MP3 format and upload it to Moodle via HTTP POST.

 

Installation note: since this is an assignment type (not a standalone plugin),it needs to be placed in /mod/assignment/type/ - not straight in the /mod/ directory.

Adding a Twitter feed to Moodle

Adding a Twitter feed to Moodle | Are you a Moodler? | Scoop.it

Last year Twitter changed their API which caused a lot of custom blocks which implemented the Twitter API to stop working. Today I will tell you how we can re-add this feature into Moodle without any block development.

 

1. Open the Twitter account that you want to show in Moodle and navigate to this page: https://twitter.com/settings/widgets

2. Click “Create New” to create a new widget and copy the html code to your clipboard (Ctrl + C)

3. Turn on Editing and add a new HTML block. You can do this by turning editing on on the home page, find the “Add a Block” block, as shown below, and then select “HTML”.

4. Click HTML Source view.

5. Paste (Ctrl + V) the widget code into the HTML editor

6. Save your changes and view your new Twitter block in Moodle
