Moodle 3.0 is about four weeks from release and the Moodle development team is seeking help in getting testing done. (PS – there are over 500 tests that need to be run to check everything).
Getting involved is fairly simple:
1. Read over the QA testing guide here to learn how to run tests, reset them, submit fixes, and more. 2. Send a note to Rajesh Taneja at the link in this forum. He’ll add you to the Moodle Tester Group in the Moodle Tracker. 3. Start testing!
As noted in the forum – Moodle is looking for a 100% pass rate in the next three weeks to make sure everything is polished and in place for the release.
Not Moodle but some useful ideas in a well presented and engaging ebook from Brightspace. Topics include: 1. Engaged instruction ; 2. Classroom design ; 3. The “flipped classroom” ; 4. Emerging technologies ; 5. Gamification
Tired of manually enrolling students or describing the step by step that a student might need to take to self-enroll in a resource? The Auto Enrolment plugin will enroll students based on their interaction with a course on your site.
The enrollment plugin provides a quick and easy way to setup auto enrolment based on if the student views a course, views an activity or resource, or simply logs in.
What might it be good for? If you have a bunch of courses that are open to any of your users that you want to provide a quick and easy way for them to connect with (and stay connected with) such as those that are social format focused on subject or communities or courses with lots of handy resources.
While the big changes are the ones that get the most attention, small tweaks to Moodle’s modules and usability can go a long way in making your course and course experience that much better. This small (in scope not in difficulty or complexity) change proposed by Tim Hunt is one that I can get behind: the proposal is to modify the behavior of random question blocks in the quiz to assign a weighting to which questions are displayed in subsequent attempts or other exams that utilize the same question banks.
How will it work? According to the explanation in the post,
* Find all the question that could go in this place. That is, the questions that are in the right category in the question bank.
* For each one, count up how often it has been used in all the students previous quiz attempts (if any).
* Look at all the questions that have been used the fewest number of times. (So, of some question have not been seen at all yet, take all of those. Otherwise, if all questions have been seen at least once but some have not yet been seen twice, take all the ones that have only been seen once. And so on.)
* Pick one of those questions at random and use it.
There isn’t a business in any industry today that doesn’t feel the heat to transform themselves on a yearly, quarterly, monthly, or even a daily basis. The eLearning industry is no different. So th...
I have scooped this because I wanted to share and remember the Major Online Training Trends especially.."Pull not Push. The first thing most learners think is, “They are making me take this course”. The future is creating an environment where people want to go to learn or get the content they need to do their jobs better"
