Create Podcasts in Moodle course using the Pcast plugin

Create Podcasts in Moodle course using the Pcast plugin | Climbing the Moodle ladder | Scoop.it
Unless you are living in a stone age, you might be aware about Podcasts and the benefits they provide in the E-learning courses. Podcasts offer numerous advantages in the learning space as they are a mobile form of media and a type of social media format.

Moodle has got a nice attractive activity plugin named “PCast” which makes it simple to create podcasts in Moodle. The podcasts can be created by teachers and audio as well as video podcasts can be uploaded.

14 Plugins and growing for Atto Text Editor

14 Plugins and growing for Atto Text Editor | Climbing the Moodle ladder | Scoop.it
One of the great things about TinyMCE was that it was very extensible and came with loads of features already built in. Moodle’s own text editor released with 2.7 is comparatively light in features, but that is slowly changing. Recently released for Atto was the “More Font Colors” plugin which is exactly what it sounds like. Here’s a list of all of the Atto Plugins that you can use (each can be found in the Plugin Database) broken down to strictly text editing and extensions using 3rd party tools,

Provide students with a custom message upon login with this Block

Provide students with a custom message upon login with this Block | Climbing the Moodle ladder | Scoop.it

The Login Message block is a pretty slick way to differentiate notifications to students based on their login statistics. Each can be customized to fit your needs.

Messages are each displayed in a regular block and are triggered by login.

1. Before login
2. First time
3 1 day since last login
4. 1 week since last login
5. more than one month from the last login

Might be a good way to promote model student behavior. Check it out and download it here: https://moodle.org/plugins/view.php?plugin=block_login_info. The block is developed and maintained by Hiroshi Honda and is available for Moodle 2.7.

Moodle Mobile Messaging Gets the Whatsapp Treatment

Moodle Mobile Messaging Gets the Whatsapp Treatment | Climbing the Moodle ladder | Scoop.it
Moodle Mobile 1.10 was recently released and brought with it a few new features including new navigation, choices to sync only when you have a wifi connection (to keep Moodle-related data charges down) and plenty of fixes. The full list features, fixes and enhancements is available at http://goo.gl/iox935.

Additionally the app’s messaging interface got an upgrade as well making it look more modern similar to apps like Whatsapp and Telegram. You can give it a go by downloading the app on your Android, Windows or iOS device and connecting to http://school.demo.moodle.net/ [instructions here: https://docs.moodle.org/28/en/Moodle_Mobile#Testing_the_app_on_a_demo_site].

Online Grading to Make Teaching Life Easier with Moodle

Online Grading to Make Teaching Life Easier with Moodle | Climbing the Moodle ladder | Scoop.it
As Moodle continues to develop as a learning platform, new features emerge. This month, the latest release has delivered multiple improvements to the Gradebook tool, taking from quantative and qualitative research from teachers across the globe. A new Grade history report allows teachers and managers to see which grades have been changed, when and by whom, while a handy Single view makes it simple to focus on one column or row of the gradebook.

While there have been a range of aggregation strategies available to teachers in Gradebook, a new natural weighting method in the latest release allows for the sum of all grade values, scaled by weight. Extra credit, excluded and hidden grades are all supported.

Moodle Rubric Grading - Complete Guide - Super Moodle

Moodle Rubric Grading - Complete Guide - Super Moodle | Climbing the Moodle ladder | Scoop.it
The Moodle rubric, a system built for criteria-based assessment, explicitly describes the performance expectation for an assignment. The rubrics have several criteria and each criterion has several descriptive levels provided. A rubric identifies several attributes. They include descriptions, performance levels and the criteria.

Criteria take into account the performance aspects that an instructor intends to assess. The description attribute denotes the desired characteristics associated with a criterion. The performance level is a rating scale in rubric used to identify the level of mastery a student has within a given criteria. Each descriptive level has a numerical grade and an instructor can choose the level that answers a given criterion in the best way possible.

Moodle plugins: Wiki export

Moodle plugins: Wiki export | Climbing the Moodle ladder | Scoop.it

This plugin adds the ability to export Moodle wikis as either PDFs or epub documents.

 

It was developed by Davo Smith of Synergy Learning, on behalf of the Judicial Institute for Scotland

 

Usage

 

Once the plugin is installed, you can visit a wiki, then click on the new 'Export as epub' or 'Export as PDF' links that appear in the activity administration block (with javascript enabled, similar links are inserted on the top-right corner of the page).

 

Users with the 'mod/wiki:managewiki' capability also get a 'Sort pages for export' link, that allows them to choose the order in which pages will appear in the export.

 

There is an additional global setting which allows a copy of any wikis on the site to be sent (as a PDF) to a given email address, whenever they are updated (note, this will not export all wikis on the site the first time it is configured, it only sends those that have been updated since the email address was first entered).

Looks very useful! Improves the ability to mark a wiki and ensures no pages are missed.

Moodle plugins: Scheduler

Moodle plugins: Scheduler | Climbing the Moodle ladder | Scoop.it

The Scheduler module helps you in scheduling appointments with your students. Teachers specify time slots for meetings, students then choose one of them on Moodle. Teachers in turn can record the outcome of the meeting - and optionally a grade - within the scheduler.

 

Group scheduling is supported; that is, each time slot can accomodate several students, and optionally it is possible to schedule appointments for entire groups at the same time.

The Moodle Lesson Activity truly is an amazing content creator

The Moodle Lesson Activity truly is an amazing content creator | Climbing the Moodle ladder | Scoop.it

Not many Moodlers use the Lesson Activity in Moodle.  Mostly because it’s neither a brilliant quiz engine nor a replacement for the book module.  But when you combine both these elements and spend a bit of time on the design you can create engaging, interactive learning packages that can stand their own against popular content creation tools, and best of all, it’s authored natively in Moodle.

 

 Let’s look at the benefits/features of using the lesson module:

* Include a file popup – such as a supporting word doc or PDF, similar to what Storyline lets you do with resources
* Display a progress bar (which by the way can be styled to high heaven with CSS to look funky with gradients)
* Display an on-going score to learners so they can see their grade
* Can be set to work like a slideshow/stage with fixed height so it feels more like a Powerpoint or SCORM package
* Can be a timed activity
* Can be password protected
* Availability can be based upon completing a previous lesson – very powerful feature
* Availability can also be based upon the time spent on a previous lesson – perfect for Online Guided Learning Hours (UK requirement)
* Allows for multiple attempts and limited retries (fully configurable)
* In-built quiz with multiple question types
* Ability to import questions from other platforms
* Branching and clustering – allows for random quiz slides
* Workflows and pathways – learners can see different slides depending on the answers to a question – can be made interactive and personal.
* Can be linked to outcomes for improved reporting
* Has its own reporting tools
* Links with the Moodle gradebook
