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.

162 Page Moodle Manual from @HowtoMoodle

162 Page Moodle Manual from @HowtoMoodle | MoodleUK | Scoop.it

Here’s a 162 page resource compiled by Moodle Partner HowtoMoodle that covers a host of need to know Moodle processes for course creation and management in 2.5. Within the pages of Course Creator Essential 2.5 are easy keys to help you understand what you’re looking at (which view, if it’s an admin setting, etc.) and loads of information on anything from course creation, to specific use of various activities to conditional activities. While much of this information is available within the Moodle docs, this resource has helped to distill the information into one easy to access, free PDF that you can share with colleagues or just keep handy.

"Disaggregation in the Gradebook" & "Learning Analytics" - Bob Puffer

CLAMP‘s (Collaborative Liberal Arts Moodle Project) most recent Hack/Doc fest featured an interesting presentation on the Netspot and Monash University developed “Engagement Analytics” toolset for Moodle and how it can be used to identify at risk students and improve retention at schools using these types of schools. Bob Puffer, the speaker, provides some good information on other engagement tools (including Signals by Purdue University) and how they can be used as actionable items by faculty (or staff) or by sending a student a direct message for intervention. According to Mr. Puffer, the key is that the tool can change the weighting of each activity type so that each implementation can choose which activity types are most meaningful for measuring engagement.

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.

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.

Community Funding: TimeStat Block for Moodle 2.5 and up

Community Funding: TimeStat Block for Moodle 2.5 and up | MoodleUK | Scoop.it

I’m working with a few community members to bring the TimeStat block up to date for Moodle 2.5 and 2.6. I’m working directly with the original maintainer/developer, Łukasz Sanokowski, who will do the development.

 

If you’re not familiar with the block, TimeStat is one of the only blocks which created insight directly to the amount of time (seconds and minutes) that students took on activities within a course. It’s a great window into time on task for students of your Moodle classroom and we hope it will be just as valuable for Moodle 2.5 and Moodle 2.6 as it was for Moodle 1.9. Check out the original plugin database entry at https://moodle.org/mod/data/view.php?d=13&rid=4200.
