Moodle Q&A -- Why are check marks are not appearing on portions of courses I have completed?

Moodle Q&A -- Why are check marks are not appearing on portions of courses I have completed? | CEET Meet (Dec.2013): What's New in Moodle 2.5?  ~ David LeBlanc | Scoop.it

The activities display two ways to acknowledge activity completion. If you see a dashed border checkbox, the checkmark will appear automatically when you satisfy the criteria. This would be the case for the Glossary and the Quizzes. A solid border checkbox is one where you check it yourself by clicking it when you are satisfied that you have finished it

Moodle a single computer or from an external hard drive (2011)

This provides a set of steps and download links but the article is dated 2011. I have no idea whether the information is still reliable.

 

Portable Moodle seems to have been discontinued (http://nearlyvirtual.wordpress.com/portable-moodle-2-3/). Does anyone know anything about whether it's still available?

Learner Engagement - 2 ways to look at this

Learner Engagement - 2 ways to look at this | CEET Meet (Dec.2013): What's New in Moodle 2.5?  ~ David LeBlanc | Scoop.it

The struggle to make virtual learning environments more "engaging" can be addressed at several 2 evels

(1) Engagement with content 

~ course structure and design

~ use of Moodle tools such as badges or the Data Base, Glossary, and Workshop Modules

(2) Engagement with other learners

~ using a blended model, moving away from totally asynchronous participation to a cohort model, grouping

 

The bigger question seems to be: How do we transform students' motivation to come to online learning into motivation to stay, to actively participate, and to engage more deeply with the content?

ThinkBuzan - iMindMap 7

ThinkBuzan - iMindMap 7 | CEET Meet (Dec.2013): What's New in Moodle 2.5?  ~ David LeBlanc | Scoop.it

Integrates in the 'ultimate' version with something called DropTask to turn your desktop into virtual paper. (Sounds like a conundrum to me, but I love the creative flow this tool permits in the generation of mind maps.
