Do You Know What To Do About Bugs In Moodle Cloud?

Do You Know What To Do About Bugs In Moodle Cloud? | Collaboration Online | Scoop.it

The Moodle Cloud service was introduce by Moodle HQ just over one and a half years ago as a way to support smaller scale users of Moodle. The service is completely free (unless you want to turn off advertising, and recently Martian Dougiamas announced new tiered pricing at the #MootIEUK16) and is a fantastic way to do everything from get your first Moodle up and running, to hosting a small course or just experimenting with the platform.

The service was designed with the non-tech portion of the Moodle community in mind. It is literally a “sign up and go” service with everything you need to run courses. As such, users of Moodle Cloud can’t integrate all of the plugins and customizations they may want, but that’s not really the point.

Introduction to Natural Weighting in the Moodle 2.8 Gradebook

Introduction to Natural Weighting in the Moodle 2.8 Gradebook | Collaboration Online | Scoop.it

One of the most notable changes to the Moodle 2.8 gradebook is a new grade aggregation method called natural weighting. In this article, I will provide a brief overview of natural weighting and share a few examples of how this new feature can be implemented in a Moodle gradebook.

At a basic level, natural weighting is just an updated version of the “Sum of grades” aggregation method. Moodle 2.8 does not include “Sum of grades” as an option, so instructors who simply want to add a group of grades together to produce a sum should use natural weighting instead. However, unlike “Sum of grades,” using natural weighting allows instructors to take advantage of some additional capabilities as well: grade items can be weighted according to their points (the default behavior) or according to any alternate weights that the instructor wishes to use.

Beginning with Moodle classes in the Summer semester 2015, natural weighting is the default aggregation method for gradebook categories, but Moodle’s other aggregation methods (“Simple weighted mean of grades,” etc.) can still be selected for a gradebook category on the category’s settings screen. In many cases, instructors won’t need to change to a different aggregation method, because natural weighting can be configured to produce a sum or a mean, with weights applied or not applied, based on what the instructor needs the gradebook to report.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, March 9, 2015 3:33 PM

Here is a significant update of the Padagogy  Wheel developed by Allan Carrington. Here is what he has to say about what is included in the update:

  • Links to twice as many apps: It has direct links to 122 of the latest and most popular educational iPad apps.
  • App selection criteria: to help teachers make better app decisions These also are linked to the APPitic website and each Bloom’s Cognitive Domain Category has comprehensive selection criteria.  Prompts asking the teacher to think how the app would help the user achieve the domain activities.
  • Each domain activity linked to apps:  (that’s wheel 5 from the core) is linked to a group of apps considered most useful to enhance good outcomes.
  • The SAMR model wheel better communicates the idea.  This might seem a small addition but I have added two way arrows around the wheel.  I hope this helps teachers understand that the idea is to virtually align the SAMR model with the Bloom’s category they are working with.  The idea is once one or more apps are chosen then think Redefinition if possible. Just keep in focus that the SAMR wheel is meant to spin.  It also has a link to a great video from Dr P. as we call him in the ADE community (Dr Ruben Puentedura) who invented the SMAR model, that’s also worth watching.
  • The QR codes have been updated: and provide a great way to connect the “treeware” (aka printed) poster to online resources.  Every mobile device should have a QR reader App …. they are free as well.  The email QR code is particularly cool in it sets up an email to me in your email program and even gives it a subject line and says “Hi Allan”.
  • Information available in 19 languages: This is the most exciting new feature to me and it is again thanks to the hard work of the APPitic team.  So if one of these languages is your heart language, and not English, you can research the app and the pedagogical resources in your first language. Now that opens up help to a lot more teachers.  Of course the challenge is to get a padagogy wheel in the same 19 languages … anyone like to help?

Bonjour!  Welcome to my French 2 unit,  À la maison.  This unit was created for my face-to-face French 2 class and adapted for the virtual classroom as part of my Assessment in E-Learning course through the University of Wisconsin-Stout. 


As you read through this unit, you will find the demographic information for my current teaching position at Lake Mills High School, as well as the course content and description for my face-to-face class.  While the learning objectives remain the same, the delivery, as seen in the Unit Overview and the Learning Objectives, utilizes assessments that will be used in a virtual classroom

Moodle plugins: Wiki export

Moodle plugins: Wiki export | Collaboration Online | 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).
