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

4 Ways Moodle is Used for Nonprofit Organizations

4 Ways Moodle is Used for Nonprofit Organizations | tipsmoodle | Scoop.it

We all know that Moodle is a compatible LMS for education, healthcare, government, and corporate sectors, but not everyone is aware that Moodle is a great tool for nonprofit organizations as well. Here are 4 ways to use Moodle for nonprofit organizations.

* Moodle can be utilized by nonprofit organizations to host their website, and create online-based classrooms, which allows anywhere/anytime learning. This allows a social community to form. In Moodle, users can interact, engage in discussions, and even collaborate on work. Moodle allows course and user management, including course information, and student activities.

* Moodle's open source and cloud-based delivery makes it particularly useful for nonprofits. Nonprofit associations often have clientele and employees distributed across the map, so being able to access Moodle from any device that connects to the internet offers an effective training delivery method.

* An open source model also allows nonprofit organizations to be inclusive, meaning that it can be open to anyone regardless of their geographical location. Anyone working in a non-profit knows that a strong community is key, and Moodle allows a strong foundation. As you can imagine, opening the doors to such a large audience can mean a world of difference to a non-profit organization - more hands on deck means more productivity towards their cause.

* Moodle allows standardized curriculum and training. Consistency is essential in any organization, because it means that all members are on the same page, and there are no gaps in knowledge between members.

All of these outcomes of using Moodle work together to essentially bring awareness to your cause. By building a sense of community, your community in turn begins to develop your brand. Overall, Moodle gives you the tools you need to be efficient, and focused on your cause, and your people.

Gamify Moodle - Part 2 - Adding Dynamic Metrics

Gamify Moodle - Part 2 - Adding Dynamic Metrics | tipsmoodle | Scoop.it

This is the second part of our Gamify Moodle series, which is designed to help you gamify courses on the super-popular learning management system Moodle using Playlyfe.

 

In our first part, we scratched the surface of gamifying your courses on Moodle. We have already integrated Moodle with Playlyfe using blocks, so let's pick up from there.

 

As a course designer, you would want is to add gamification elements such as points, badges, levels, and rules to your courses. You'd also want only a few people to access this admin area. To do this, we will create a single block, shown only to teachers and course designers, which will allow them to create new badges and point metrics. And when they are designing courses or quizzes, they can decide the amount of points or types of badges the students will gain on completing those courses or quizzes.
