Sandbox Plugin Lets you reset demo and free trial courses automatically

Sandbox Plugin Lets you reset demo and free trial courses automatically | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
If you’re selling enrollment to courses using Moodle or showcasing a demo of a new Moodle plugin or feature, giving potential customers a chance to review the materials/functionality before they commit to purchasing might help increase conversions and sales overall. Just like the reset feature on Demo.Moodle.Net which resets the courses to a base stat every hour, the Sandbox plugin for Moodle 2.x allows you to set a course up and systematically/automatically reset the course so that even the same users will get a fresh experience every X duration.

According to the description (https://moodle.org/plugins/view/local_sandbox):

After installing local_sandbox, the plugin doesn’t do anything until it is configured. To configure the plugin, please visit Plugins -> Local plugins -> Sandbox.

There, you are able to define when local_sandbox should restore the courses.

You also define the directory where the course backup files to use for course restoring are. local_sandbox takes every file in this directory with a .mbz filename extension, takes the file’s name, searches for a existing course with a shortname equal to the file’s name and finally, uses the course backup file to restore / reset this course.

Additionally, there is an option to set the course start date to today instead of setting it to the date saved in the course backup file. Use this option if you need to provide playground courses in Moodle which pretend to be up-to-date.

As local_sandbox acts automatically, it can inform you by mail when failures or problems occur.

The plugin is now available for Moodle 2.3 through 2.8. Download it here: https://moodle.org/plugins/pluginversions.php?plugin=local_sandbox

Q&A With Martin Dougiamas, Founder and CEO of Moodle

Q&A With Martin Dougiamas, Founder and CEO of Moodle | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
ETT: What is the market segment your company is in and who are your core customers?

Although we are often called an LMS, we refer to Moodle as an open source learning platform because we do much more than a strict definition of an LMS can allow. Moodle is currently used in more than 230 countries with more than 70 million users worldwide. The focus of Moodle is to provide educators (individuals, schools, universities or workplace) with the tools to build their own highly customized site for online and blended learning.

In the 12 years since its first version, Moodle has been adopted by many renowned organisations across the globe, including Australia National University, California State Universities, London School of Economics, Google Mount Sinai Hospital, Shell, Mazda, ING, Allianz, and Open University as a few examples.



ETT: How did you come across the problem you’re addressing and how did you define it – what was your process in identifying it?

When I started Moodle, the web was fairly new and was largely a one-way publishing medium. As an Internet developer since 1990, however, I knew a lot more interactivity and collaboration was possible via computers, and I started researching the latest in pedagogy and working on Moodle as a way to blend this into the growing web technology.

 

ETT: What it is that you’re doing differently than your competitors? And do you expect to develop other differentiators in the future?

 

Moodle will continue to be an open source learning platform and to try and take open source to new heights.

Unlike many .com companies in the edtech sector who may be driven to produce profit for investors, our main drive is to provide free tools for educators to use as they wish.   Even though we do have a range of commercial services via our Moodle Partners (see moodle.com) all of these are designed to help pay developers to produce our free software.

eLearning Instructional Design: How best you can engage your learners? | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
As a student, I always wondered why I was more comfortable remembering a movie dialogue than the physics theorems in my textbooks. Now, as an instructional designer, I got an answer to my question – if we find something attractive and interesting, we take extra efforts to learn and remember it for a long time.

But, what goes into making your eLearning courses engaging? Well, you can create highly interesting and engaging eLearning courses by focusing on certain instructional design strategies. Let us see more.
