Moodle LMS: Hot Potatoes is Now Free!

The E-Learning Curve

I blogged recently about the development of the Nanogong and the Riffly audio-visual plugins for Moodle 2.0. Today, I'm pleased to announce that an old - that is, well-established -Moodle plugin is now freely available. As a commercially-available utility, it offered well-rounded enhancements to the fairly basic Q-T capabilities of the Moodle platform.

Custom Reports in Moodle

eLearning Blender

This week I had some time to moodle around in Moodle. Moodle has some great standard reports but it doesn't appear to be too easy to customize them. I really haven't dug too deep until now so this was definitely an eye opener. I didn't realize how easy it was to set up. One thing that did trip me up though is customizing reports.

Corporate University: The Learning Management System

Your Training Edge

But if you do not have an LMS, the setup phase of your corporate university is the time to buy, build, or “freeware” a system. There are LMSs that are offered as “freeware”, such as Moodle.

Question: Tracking CBTs

Experiencing eLearning

My experience has mostly been in higher ed, so I’ve always needed to do grading or more tracking than what this reader needs: I am the sole person involved with e-Learning in my branch, and I am mostly limited to using freeware. Â Things like Moodle are overkill, as we don’t need grading, blogging, wikis, etc., A reader asked a question that I’m not really sure how to answer.

Teaching and learning C online

Moodle Journal

If the institute make use of a licensed product, as we do, then students either have to purchase it, or make use of a freeware or trial version. Of course I have naturally placed the link to the facility in a Moodle block. This year in both our FE and HE programmes in Software Development, I am using C as the principle language. I feel that C as a structured introduction to programming has a lot to offer students new to the subject area.

Thoughts on Social Networking

Moodle Journal

In fact I did a couple of blogs on this which you can still get to from here and to save repeating myself they are:- Tell And Post, Thursday, September 14, 2006 Social Networking So Far, Sunday, September 24, 2006 Essentially the idea was to start them off by using Moodle as a social tool and see if this had any impact of the likely emergence of online groups and ultimately outcomes.

Where are open source learning applications?

Tony Karrer

In it he points to the learning space and says that the current status of open-source learning applications is: Innovators - Elgg Learning Landscape and several others Early Adopters - Moodle and a few others Early Majority - nobody Late Majority - forget about it I would tend to agree with him that there are relatively few open-source learning applications, but would add a few thoughts. Think of it as freeware Captivate. *
