How to easily export your Moodle site settings and configuration to other Moodle?

How to easily export your Moodle site settings and configuration to other Moodle? | Moodling | Scoop.it
Are you a Moodle administrator who used to manage multiple Moodle sites? You might have experienced the pain of configuring the same settings again and again on production, development and other instances of your Moodle site. Is there any way to simply copy and export all configuration settings from one Moodle instance to another? Answer to the question is yes.

Admin presets block is a Moodle plugin which allows you to simply export the site settings to .xml presets, import and load other sites presets. The plugin which was initially developed by David Monllaó, is now being maintained by Clément Prudhomme & Nikolaos Papoutsis. Recently, the Admin presets plugin was updated to a new version compatible with Moodle 3.3 version.

By using the admin presets block, you can export all the site settings into .xml files which can be later imported to other Moodle sites. It also provides rollback of applied changes and partial loading of presets which is a great feature for administrators.

Want to add interactivity to your boring PDF files? Check out this awesome Plugin

Want to add interactivity to your boring PDF files? Check out this awesome Plugin | Moodling | Scoop.it
You might have created a lot of study material and published it in the form of PDF files but your students are not finding it interesting. How you can make those boring PDF files into interesting, interactive and more engaging content resource?

Today, I am going to show you how you can convert your existing PDF files into creative, fun-filled interactive activities in your Moodle course. Mask is a new activity type plugin for Moodle which is developed by Edunao – Moodle partner from France. The Moodle plugin is compatible with all Moodle versions from 2.7 to 3.2.

The intention behind the development of Mask plugin is to offer a simple solution for teaching staff to create an interactive experience from existing PDF files by converting them into images using the pdf2svg library. The teacher can upload their PDF file to Moodle, lay down masks that obscure parts of the underlying document and add questions for the students to answer to make the masks disappear.

Before proceeding further, please note that this plugin needs additional pdf2svg application which is available as a standard debian and ubuntu Linux package and is also freely available for Microsoft Windows and Mac OSX.

How much your learners are engaged in your course? Find out with Course dedication plugin #Moodleplugins

How much your learners are engaged in your course? Find out with Course dedication plugin #Moodleplugins | Moodling | Scoop.it
Online teaching is always cursed with low engagement and higher dropout rates as compared to traditional brick and mortar learning methods. Moodle teachers also face the problem of low student interaction within the course. If you are also facing the same problem, there are many ways to improve the student interaction within your Moodle course.

For measuring the interaction in your Moodle course, you need to measure how long your students are online. Course dedication is a Moodle block plugin which allows you to keep a track of estimated interaction/dedication time of participants within a course. The block plugin is created by Aday Talavera and is available for Moodle 2.7 version onwards.

Course dedication plugin is mainly intended to be used only by teachers to check how the students are interacting within their course. Students are not allowed by default but you can configure the block for students for a personal overview. The plugin calculates the interaction time through sessions. It will check all the clicks within a course, sessions and sessions duration to give you the interaction time. You can also export the data to spreadsheet format.
