Moodle plugins: Wiki export

Moodle plugins: Wiki export | tipsmoodle | Scoop.it

This plugin adds the ability to export Moodle wikis as either PDFs or epub documents.

 

It was developed by Davo Smith of Synergy Learning, on behalf of the Judicial Institute for Scotland

 

Usage

 

Once the plugin is installed, you can visit a wiki, then click on the new 'Export as epub' or 'Export as PDF' links that appear in the activity administration block (with javascript enabled, similar links are inserted on the top-right corner of the page).

 

Users with the 'mod/wiki:managewiki' capability also get a 'Sort pages for export' link, that allows them to choose the order in which pages will appear in the export.

 

There is an additional global setting which allows a copy of any wikis on the site to be sent (as a PDF) to a given email address, whenever they are updated (note, this will not export all wikis on the site the first time it is configured, it only sends those that have been updated since the email address was first entered).

Looks very useful! Improves the ability to mark a wiki and ensures no pages are missed.

Miriam Fischer's curator insight, October 23, 2014 3:27 AM

Gute Idee, schon oft wurde ich gefragt, wie man die gemeinsame Arbeit im Moodle-Wiki exportieren könnte.

Sandbox Plugin Lets you reset demo and free trial courses automatically

Sandbox Plugin Lets you reset demo and free trial courses automatically | tipsmoodle | Scoop.it
If you’re selling enrollment to courses using Moodle or showcasing a demo of a new Moodle plugin or feature, giving potential customers a chance to review the materials/functionality before they commit to purchasing might help increase conversions and sales overall. Just like the reset feature on Demo.Moodle.Net which resets the courses to a base stat every hour, the Sandbox plugin for Moodle 2.x allows you to set a course up and systematically/automatically reset the course so that even the same users will get a fresh experience every X duration.

According to the description (https://moodle.org/plugins/view/local_sandbox):

After installing local_sandbox, the plugin doesn’t do anything until it is configured. To configure the plugin, please visit Plugins -> Local plugins -> Sandbox.

There, you are able to define when local_sandbox should restore the courses.

You also define the directory where the course backup files to use for course restoring are. local_sandbox takes every file in this directory with a .mbz filename extension, takes the file’s name, searches for a existing course with a shortname equal to the file’s name and finally, uses the course backup file to restore / reset this course.

Additionally, there is an option to set the course start date to today instead of setting it to the date saved in the course backup file. Use this option if you need to provide playground courses in Moodle which pretend to be up-to-date.

As local_sandbox acts automatically, it can inform you by mail when failures or problems occur.

The plugin is now available for Moodle 2.3 through 2.8. Download it here: https://moodle.org/plugins/pluginversions.php?plugin=local_sandbox

Moodle Plugins Directory: Ranking block

Moodle Plugins Directory: Ranking block | tipsmoodle | Scoop.it

This block improves gamefication into the moodle plataform.

The ranking block works together with the moodle course completion. In the moodle course you configure the criterias to the end of the course. The ranking block monitors these activities and add points to the students based on accomplishing the activities. There are different ways to gain points.

 

For example:

- If a student completes a html page the ranking adds 2 points.

 - If a student completes an assignment and it is ended only when the student receive a grade. The ranking add 2 points plus the grade points to the student. You can configure the default points in the block configuraion.

Miloš Bajčetić's curator insight, February 26, 2014 1:06 PM

NOTE: All the activities that needs grade to be finished will add the activity points (default 2) more the activity grade. For example: If the course has one assignment and it's configured to be completed only after the grade is received by the student and let's say a random student received by the end of the assignment 10(ten) as his grade. In this case that student will obtain 12(twelve) points, the 2(two pre-configured) from finishing the activity plus 10(ten) from his grade.

 

This only occurs with activities that have grades. ex: foruns, assignments, lessons, etc...

Moodle plugins: Slideshow

Moodle plugins: Slideshow | tipsmoodle | Scoop.it

This is a new block which creates a slideshow in the header of a site or course page.  It uses jquery/cycle to handle the image transitions. Jquery is also used to manipulate the DOM to reposition the block's node into the heading div of the page. 

 

Since this is dependent on using moodle's built in jquery functions, it is not available for versions prior to 2.5.

Update: This block will work with the Clean theme on Moodle version 2.5.2 where MDL-41516 has been fixed.

Moodle plugins: YouTube submission | tipsmoodle | Scoop.it

The YouTube assignment submission plugin is for the Moodle assignment (2.3  and above). It allows teachers to set an assignment, for which a submission can be a video. The video is uploaded from the student's pc/device directly to YouTube. The video file is stored on YouTube, though it is accessible from Moodle.
