Catch Up With Moodle 3.3 Ahead Of The Major, Feature-Light 3.4 Update

Catch Up With Moodle 3.3 Ahead Of The Major, Feature-Light 3.4 Update | Marks Moodle | Scoop.it
Considering the announcement made recently by Moodle Founder Martin Dougiamas signaling a development introspection of sorts, no new features will come in Moodle 3.4, and we might have to wait until 3.6 for brand new functionality. Rather, the coming year will focus on getting the existing parts working as they should, all of them already available in Moodle 3.3.

At the four-minute mark, Jeremy Schweitzer describes Moodle to the newcomers, touching on the “modularity” to which it owes its name, and important attributes including the open source nature of the project and the importance of a global community for its ongoing development.

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 | Marks Moodle | 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.

October Moodle Plugin Roundup: Did We Miss Your Hidden Gem? | Marks Moodle | Scoop.it
The Moodle Plugin Directory is open to both free and paid plugins. The community is aware that plugin development could be a sustainable business model, where valuable products should find a way to exist and develop sustainably. Paid plugin developers, however, might find it valuable to offer trials or demos as the Moodleverse is a particularly active and picky community, something particularly great for businesses looking for early-stage feedback.

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? | Marks Moodle | 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.

Tag more of what you want to save and see in Moodle Forum posts, glossary entries and book chapters may now be tagged in Moodle 3.3! Thank you to our Moodle community member Andrew Hancox for making this feature possible in our latest release.


To use this new feature, administrators will need to firstly enable tags from the Moodle users “manage tags” screen in their Moodle site. Then administrators can either force standard tags, suggest tags or allow users a free choice. When users click the tag, or click on from the “search tags” site page, they can view everything within this tag across a variety of formats. Users are then able to filter their search to specific areas, or add the tag to their own user interests.

Moodle plugins: Catalogue

Moodle plugins: Catalogue | Marks Moodle | Scoop.it
Provides a visual and central place for a teacher to access everything he can use in his course (activities, reports, blocks, …) Frequently used items can be marked as favorites for quick access. Unless the teacher wants to delete or move an activity or block, he rarely needs to switch to editing mode. Students can also use the Catalogue to access the tools they're allowed to. No need, for users, to learn a first method to add an activity, then a different one to add a block, then a third one to use enrolment methods, and so on, searching the four corners of the UI... With Catalogue, it's the same method for all of these tools and they all can be found at the same place.

Moodle site administrators! check detailed cron tasks stats through this awesome Moodle plugin

Moodle site administrators! check detailed cron tasks stats through this awesome Moodle plugin | Marks Moodle | Scoop.it
All Moodle site administrators must have faced problems with the cron tasks in their career. Cron is a special PHP script that runs different tasks at differently scheduled intervals. For running your Moodle site properly, you need to configure the cron tasks on your server immediately after installing Moodle. Over a time, some tasks within the cron script starts taking a longer time than usual or starts failing completely. How do you come to know about the statistics for your cron job?

Catalyst IT – Moodle partner from New Zealand, Australia & UK, developed a new Moodle plugin – “Cron lock statistics” to help all Moodle site administrators. Cron lock statistics is a lock statistics admin tool, specifically tailored to report on cron task timings. This plugin can offer a report over which tasks are currently running and where, with a detailed history of how long each task took during previous execution.

Most of the time, most cron tasks are quick and finish in seconds. You may not be interested in knowing the history of these tasks. However, you might like detailed stats for slower, bigger tasks. This plugin compresses the history of all quick tasks so that you will get overall stats for all cron tasks, and detailed stats data for slower bigger tasks without bloating out the database with too much data.

But if you read through some of our case studies on Moodle Stories you will also find a number of organisations – from big corporations such as Mazda in Colombia, financial institutions such as rediATM and not-for-profit organisations, like World Vision – are also using Moodle for a variety of reasons.

Whether it is to induct staff, for training and certification or for professional development/learning opportunities, Moodle is being used in many workplaces around the world as a learning and work-related solution.
