This video demonstrates all the core features of the new "Essential" theme written by Julian (Moodleman) Ridden.
The Essential theme is designed with a focus on clean and crisp design while also providing a high degree of customisation. Features include: - dynamic slider on homepage - custom color schemes - 3 custom block locations - responsive design
"If are you planning to move from Moodle 1.9 to Moodle 2 you will need to redevelop your theme. This document aims to provide some guidance on what’s out there already and some of the issues to think about.
Moodle for teachers: An introduction is a 4 week introductory course with a recommended total of 8-12 hours participation time. Registration opens on 19th August 2013 and the course starts on 1st September 2013. There are no fees for taking the course and successful participants will be awarded a Mozilla Open Badges course completion badge that they can add to their Open Badges backpack.
1. a teacher creates the activity with the LTI connection details
2. they click on the link and it launches the BBB framed by the Moodle site
3. they are automatically logged in and granted presenter rights
4. the student can click on the link course page and be logged in and able to interact with the teacher.
It is great to see another tool become LTI enabled, which will make things much easier for teachers to leverage the diversity of learning tools in Moodle without having to install extra custom integration. I also see that the BBB LTI integration is IMS certified which means that it has been tested to meet the standard which is good news too.
