Moodle: Auto-linking Moodle: Auto-linking Presentation Transcript

  • Moodle: Auto-linking James Neill University of Canberra April, 2009
  • The Problem A key advantage of web-based materials is the ability to create HYPERLINKs. However, hyperlinks are often:
    • Under-used
    • Time-consuming to create
    • Broken
  • Auto-linking: What it does Be default, Moodle creates auto-links to:
    • GLOSSARY items
    • RESOURCES
    • ACTIVITIES
    These auto-links appear in:
    • LABELS & WEB PAGES
    • FORUM POSTS
    • QUIZZES etc.
  • Auto-linking: By design Create auto-links for key site components and commonly used external links. Link
  • Auto-linking: By design
    • By default, only the first instance of an auto-linkable item in a section will be hyperlinked.
    • <nolink> ..... </nolink> in the html code can be used to disable auto-linking
  • Auto-linking: Via glossary
    • Add commonly used terms to the glossary (if they are not already Resources or Activities)
    • Then those terms will be auto-linked whenever anyone uses them
