Moodle plugins directory: Flexpage Activity

 How much potential does this have. It could be a real game changer in Moodle design with a real opportunity to create engaging, dynamic and personalised designs (and content).

 

More details about how to set it up at http://kb.moodlerooms.com/article/50/administrator#427

 

Looking forward to see some examples...

New GCSE Science Moodle Course with adapted grid format

New GCSE Science grid format
gideonwilliams's insight:

Quick video showing a design for a GCSE Biology course using Gareth Barnard's amazing grid format. Updated for Moodle 2.6 I have set it to show square images and made all the uploaded images square shape first (very important!)

 

The icon link design is one we use a lot of at Perins. External links are shown on a separate page. Internal links eg to downloadable files or Moodle activities are made to another topic that can be hidden from the students.

 

Some CSS changes made to the block. Looks not too shabby!

 

The Flash animations work well when you lnk to the SWF file. Nice hand tip from this location: http://www.wikihow.com/Save-Flash-Animation-from-Website

Open Badges

Open Badges | Moodle and Mahara | Scoop.it

Good discourse through Moodle badges showing progres being made on this feature. Links to Mozilla as repository but no mention of Mahara :O(

 

Great to see different contributions from other locations although all mainly colleges.

 

Interesting to read about the complaints for badges (slide 12) and the idea that badges are showcasing skills in the same way CVs do (slides 15-17).

 

Really interesting to see developing use of badges to assess staff skills (slides 28-36)!

Professional ePortfolio: Don Presant - Savvyfolio.net

Professional ePortfolio: Don Presant - Savvyfolio.net | Moodle and Mahara | Scoop.it

Want to see an amazing Mahara page used by a professional? Look no further than Don's page. Amazing design and one I show our students who sometimes think that mahara has no future beyond school lessons.

 

Notice the badges plugin which links his mozilla backpack to the site

 

Wonder what theme this is?

Moodle Themes and Icons

We were considering changing our theme at moodle.perins.net so I went out to look at the different themes available and how schools and colleges have approached designs.

 

The slideshow was made in May 2012 and not updated since. It contains my thoughts and opinions towards the end and was later discussed with our elearning team at school.

 

From September we will be teaming up with WebAnywhere and are currently looking at different design features.
