An activity is the general term that is used to refer to a group-of features in the Moodle course. Basically an activity is some thing which a student does which interacts with the other students or/and the teacher

Moodle plugins: MindMap Course

Moodle plugins: MindMap Course | MoodleUK | Scoop.it

WIth MindMap Course, Moodle becomes a first LMS which allows students for using courses through interactive, personalized mindmap. Additionally, it provides features unavailable in standard Moodle so far, which are: 1) graphical presentation of conditional dependencies and 2) distinction of modules where student have problems (and which are near deadline). Map files can be downloaded, they are compatible with Freemind software.

 

Map is interactive. Users can enter course elements (like sections, modules, lesson and book pages) directly from map. Elements which were not visited by user are distincted with bold font. There are displayed arrows, which describe conditional activity dependencies. Modules, where a particular student has problems, and available time is running out, are appropriately highligthted as well.

 

Map files can be downloaded and opened in Freemind software, what gives teachers additional features. For example, to create a task for students teacher downloads a map and change it, for example move some elements, add invalid elements, create (or not) a list with elements possible for using. Students task will be getting map to the correct content.

This app requires Java and Flash to work.


Via Miloš Bajčetić
Moodle_UK's insight:

Looks interesting!? "a new perspective for using courses - as a mindmap instead of regular course page".

more...
Miloš Bajčetić's curator insight, June 18, 2:45 PM

IMPORTANT: Map files are stored in /blocks/mindmap/temp/ folder (within the block folder). This folder have to be writeable by the web server process. Temp files are periodically removed via cron script. 


VERY IMPORTANT: TO AVOID DATA LEAK, MAKE SURE THAT YOUR WEB SERVER IS INCLUDING .HTACCESS FILE FROM /BLOCKS/MINDMAP/TEMP/ FOLDER. This disables indexing of the folder. You can check this by entering: yourmoodle.com/blocks/midnmap/temp/ in web browser and you should NOT be able to view any files.

This could be a big game changer. Having moved from a Moodle school to one that uses Edmodo I recognise the pros and cons of both systems.

 

Replicating an Edmodo style interface in Moodle but backed up by Moodle second to none functionality and range of tools could have a huge impact in bring Moodle to a wider audience.

Moodle in English: Moodle tip: How to allow guests to post in forums

Moodle in English: Moodle tip: How to allow guests to post in forums | MoodleUK | Scoop.it

How can guests post in a forum? is a question which comes up fairly regularly so I thought I would post a suggestion with the above title in the hope Mr Google and community members might get to it in future.

 

The simple answer is: guests cannot post in forums, even though you can edit permissions to allow them to. It does not work. However, that is not very helpful if your organisation has a course open to guests and you would like visitors who are not a part of your Moodle to contribute to a forum. Perhaps you have a open course with examples of a new study programme and you want prospective clients to ask questions, for example?

 

A workaround is to create a new role, the Forum poster role and to give this role to one account which you create uniquely for the purpose of allowing visitors to post in forums in your guest access course. The role is quite restricted; the user cannot change the name or password and can only post in forums, not do quizzes, add to wikis and other logged-in user activities.


Via Miloš Bajčetić
Moodle_UK's insight:

Useful tip and a reminder of the settings where a role can be assigned.
