Moodle1.6


IMS is a body which helps define technical standards for various things, including e-learning material. The IMS Content Packaging specification makes it possible to store chunks of material in a standard format which can be re-used in different systems, without having to convert the material into new formats.

The IMS content package in Moodle 1.6 enables such content packages to be uploaded and included in Moodle courses. There are various options for displaying content in a pop-up window, with a navigation menu or buttons etc. In addition, the resource type supports an optional repository, enabling content packages to be shared between courses.

IMS content package repository

The IMS content package repository is disabled by default. It may be enabled as follows:

  1. Find repository_config.php in moodle/mod/resource/type/ims and change
    $CFG->repositoryactivate = false;
    to
    $CFG->repositoryactivate = true
  2. Create a folder named ims_repository in the webroot
  3. Change
    $CFG->repository = "C:/public/www/html/ims_repository";
    to point to this folder on your file system

Content packages should be extracted to the folder ims_repository.
