Moodle 2.5 Course Reports Beginner Tutorial

Moodle 2.5 Course Reports Beginner Tutorial | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

Moodle course reports beginner tutorial. Course reports page can be a very powerful tracking tool in Moodle. It allows instructors to view course logs, user activity reports, and course statistics based on users, times, or activity modules.

 

An instructor might use reports to gauge how many students opened an article he or she wanted them to read before lecture. More importantly, it can show who did not open the article. The night before the lecture, however, you can send out an email to all the students that did not complete the reading to remind them. This feature is helpful because it will not email the students that have already completed the activity. You can also use reports to gauge when students are logging into your course the most. For instance, say Sunday always has twice as many views as Thursday. You might adjust the time you post material or require the completion of an assignment to better fit the activity of your students.

View PDF files in a pop-up window in the Essential Theme on your Moodle 3.0 site (works on all other themes as well!)

View PDF files in a pop-up window in the Essential Theme on your Moodle 3.0 site (works on all other themes as well!) | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
Design. It's all about design. Today's post is a sequel to my earlier post on the same subject. In that post, I enabled my PDF and ODF files to open in a Lightbox-like window, when clicked upon, in three themes: Evolve-D, Academi and BCU. I had used FancyBox and ViewerJS to achieve this. I couldn't get Fancybox to work with other themes.

The great news is that I have since discovered that ShadowBox (in place of FancyBox) works on Essential theme. The installation is much easier, and I managed to optimise the look and feel of ShadowBox by tweaking its original CSS file.

Learning Outcome
At the end of this post, you will be able to hack your beloved and sacred Moodle site so that PDF files will open as pop-ups. That's all. Nothing earth-shattering. However, I strongly believe that my post today is going to touch lives and make a difference in your Moodle experience (XP). As well as your teachers' and students' Moodle XP. Read on!
