OLD STUFF below here

Just a dump of misc links and thoughts while I while I remember them.

Activity Locking (Now called "Conditional Activities" . . .)

Timed release for activities is a strongly desired feature.

There is a script for 1.9.x that works. It is being implemented in 2.0 Refs: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=92731

Now called conditional activity: https://docs.moodle.org/en/Development:Conditional_activities

Forum Post: 2006 - http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=45359

Subscribe at the thread level

I notice in the tracker http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-1626 there is a request for the ability for notification (subscription) at the thread level, not just the forum level. It says it is in 2.0 in the tracker. What does this mean? Is this definite, since it is not mentioned in the roadmap? Is it too small an enhancement to justify comment in the roadmap? To what level of detail does the roadmap get maintained?

Book Module

I note there is a request for the book module to be in the core. http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/CONTRIB-283 But it does not have a fix version indicated. Does that mean the request is not considered significant to be included in 2.0??

Admin Functions

Cloning items

http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=21234&parent=102367 (Old: 2005)

http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=67185#p450794 (2007)

Sharing cart (2009) The Sharing Cart is a pick-and-choose tool that lets you roam courses across your entire Moodle site, select just the item you want (without user data), and place it into your own course. The Sharing Cart, once turned on, follows you as you go course to course, carrying the items you pick up along the way. It’s an easy, intuitive tool for duplicating the teaching materials and activities we use every day. You can also use it to clone an activity within the same course. Some teachers found they can use it as a mini-library of frequently used content for copying to many of their own courses.

Five quick steps: Overview: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=80732#p357940

Floating Names and Headers

Freeze frame alternatives. http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-13950

The cludge/fix for a lot of items: group assessments in categories and hide them as needed. This is the problem of the student names list. The header problem: creagte groups: display one group at a time.

Old solution: The question of reprinting headers at regular intevals on the page. http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=91329#p454697

There is no sign of a freeze panel in any Moodle roadmap.

New course formats/Course building

http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=102680#p453401 - Six new formats

File Upload and Linking

Multiple File Upload

Facebok and Flickr have it, why not Moodle.  :)

Multiple linking all at once

If you have a bunch of files in your Files area, then there should be a better way to link them than one by one. Maybe a GMail option "Add another file" with the three aspects - title, description, browse . . .

Or maybe a tick box option in the Files area that fills a form with filenames and leaves some blanks. This will need a file API change

Links to Content Management Systems

The Moodle term is 'external repository' and an API is planned to enable access of a range of external possibilities.

Copying File into Moodle

Linking to File from Moodle

A scenario: Teacher linking to an external file as a new resource (think video repository)

  1. Teacher wants to display a file in the repository
  2. Teacher clicks the "Choose a resource" button
  3. Teacher is presented with a simple file picker to choose a file (with a menu to switch between multiple configured repositories)
  4. Teacher chooses a file in an external repository
  5. Link to the file is COPIED into Moodle and stored by the resource module
  6. Link is marked as owned by that user
  7. Whenever someone wants to follow that link, the resource module controls access (see Development:File API )

https://docs.moodle.org/en/Development:Repository_API

Objectives:

  1. Allow all Moodle users to easily bring content into Moodle from external repositories
  2. Provide a consistent interface to any external repository, for any Moodle module

Blog with comments

https://docs.moodle.org/en/Student_projects/Blog_improvements

There is a lot of talk about blogs on the various forums in Moodle.org, and in particular the Moodle implmentation of them.

Particularly here:

  1. http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=94623#p418128 and here:
  2. http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=44830&mode=3

There is an issue tracker here: http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-8776 but there doesn't seem to be any sort of focus to the discussion in the details. From the roadmap: comments are coming. What about the other suggestions in the tracker? Where do we find out what is coming and what is planned? How are decisions arrived at?
