Moodle plugins: Online audio recording

Moodle plugins: Online audio recording | EdTech & Ebooks | Scoop.it

Audio recorder (Flash 10.1+) submission method. Records locally and uploads via HTTP POST, so there's no need for a streaming server!

 

Finally putting an end to the need for a streaming server (or a Java applet) to allow students to record audio clips for Moodle assignments, the Online Audio Recording assignment uses Flash (10.1+) to record audio from a microphone, convert it to MP3 format and upload it to Moodle via HTTP POST.

What is an "Enhanced" eBook? | Common Craft

What is an "Enhanced" eBook? | Common Craft | EdTech & Ebooks | Scoop.it

Another example is Nancy Duarte’s book Resonate, which she calls a "multi-touch" book. Resonate is wonderful example because it uses the full menu of enhanced ebook options, from audio and video, to interactive quizzes, graphs and behind-the-scenes content.  I've seen no better example of enhanced ebooks than Resonate. Again, why read about famous speeches when you can watch or listen to them in an enhanced ebook?

Moodle plugins: oEmbed Filter

Moodle plugins: oEmbed Filter | EdTech & Ebooks | Scoop.it

Using the oEmbed protocol http://oembed.com/ hyperlinks pointing to supported sites will be substituted with an embedded version.

N.B. You may need to disable YouTube and Vimeo in the Admin->Site Administration->Appearance->Media Embedding

 

This helps send students to videos on external sites but without leaving Moodle and being distracted by other content.

 

Currently supported sites

* YouTube *

* Vimeo *

* Ted *

* SlideShare

* Screenr

* Issuu

* Poll Everywhere

* Soundcloud

* Microsoft Mix

 Sites with * also support optional "Lazy" loading. For these sites a thumbnail still of the video is shown that is swapped for the actual video when clicked upon. This speeds up page load times and reduces bandwidth.
