Open Technical Debt

Open Technical Debt | Moodlicious | Scoop.it
Technical debt is accumulated future work that has amassed as the result of decisions made during the development of software (or more generally during the development of information systems). The term was coined in 1992 by Cunningham who realised that as soon as software is created there is an element of deferred work that can be equated to “going into debt” (Cunningham, 1992).


Analogously, technical debt is often equated to financial debt, such as a loan. The value of a technical debt is not dollars, but the cost of the time needed to rectify problems. As software is created, compromises are made between delivering a flawed but acceptable system now or delaying and delivering a superior system later. These compromises result in a backlog of work that needs to considered before a future release.

PoodLL for 2.3 Released

PoodLL for 2.3 Released | Moodlicious | Scoop.it

We even had time to sneak in two goodies. We added two filter types to the PoodLL filter, Quizlet and SlideRocket. Sliderocket.com and Quizlet.com are great places to get content for your courses. But it is difficult to cut and paste the embed code from them, because by default Moodle and TinyMCE won’t allow iframes. But the PoodLL filter now handles all that.

Cybergogue: A Critique of Connectivism as a Learning Theory

Cybergogue: A Critique of Connectivism as a Learning Theory | Moodlicious | Scoop.it

"Overall, connectivism seems to be standing on one foot. It appeals to the classical formalist theories of education on which it stands, while simultaneously denying their relevancy. It declares the network itself to be knowledge and everything connected to it is a knowledge maker. Its adherence to scientific standards, supposedly, may come later, even as educators struggle to help students understand how to discriminate between scholarly academic sources and unreliable sources, which is an increasing problem within institutions of learning."

Open Badges - MoodleDocs

In September 2011, Mozilla launched the Open Badges project as a way to "make it easy to issue and share digital learning badges across the web". Mozilla have developed an open specification and API for badge creation and sharing and are looking for developers to implement infrastructure that makes use of the badges.


TotaraLMS have volunteered to lead the development to integrate Open Badges into Moodle (and also Mahara).


This document contains our initial ideas and some unanswered questions around implementation in order to receive feedback from the moodle community on what is required and how to implement it.

SCORM doesn’t work in Moodle?

I see a lot of posts with very limited information about issues with SCORM in Moodle – Here is a common question:

My SCORM package works fine 90% of the time but 10% of my users report that it doesn’t save their score or flag as complete – help?

 

This question is not very specific so it’s hard to give advice but here is a list of things to check.

Graphical Interactive Student Monitoring Tool for Moodle 2

GISMO is a graphical interactive monitoring tool that provides useful visualization of students' activities in online courses to instructors. With GISMO instructors can examine various aspects of distance students, such as the attendance to courses, reading of materials, submission of assignments. Users of the popular learning management system Moodle may benefit from GISMO for their teaching activities. With respect to the standard reports provided by Moodle (which basically allow teachers to see if an individual student has viewed a specific resource or participated on a specific activity on a specific day), GISMO provides comprehensive visualizations that gives an overview of the whole class, not only a specific student or a particular resource. With GISMO, instructors can perform analysis of the whole class, and may have a "clear picture" of what the class is doing, or has done in a period in the past.

Moodle 2.3 - I'm Excited!

Mr. Dougiamas always provides a hands on type of demonstration of what’s newest and greatest within Moodle. This keynote was no different. Martin started by highlighting the various changes in Moodle 2.3 which will be released mid-late June 2012 (once QA and testing has wrapped up). The focus of Moodle HQ’s efforts this development cycle has been largely focused on increasing the usability of Moodle and mitigating some of the most widely criticized aspects of the 2.0 platform.
