Top 5 Moodle Plugins to Enhance Productivity - Webinar Slides: Jan 23, 2014

Whether you are new to Moodle or an experienced user, knowing which plugins to choose and how to best implement them can be a challenge. So which one’s should you choose and why?

Our Moodle experts regularly review plugins and advise and help our clients select the best plugins based on their learning/training needs. As an official Moodle Partner, we’re able to test and recertify all new standard plugins to make sure we can troubleshoot any potential errors.

In this must-see webinar with Chad Leaman, Moodle Evangelist for Lambda Solutions, and Ben Young, Director of Application Services, with co-presenter Arnet Tkachuk, Business Analyst, you will see a demonstration of their top 5 plugin choices which help with tracking learning engagement, reporting, and overall user experience.

  • Arnet: My name is Arnet Tkachuk, Business Analyst at Lambda solutions located in Sunny Vancouver.
    Before introducing my co-hosts, I just want to go over some basic tips to make this webinar as beneficial for you as possible.
    Our presentation should take about 45 mins, including Q&A, but will be available afterwards to answer any additional questions
    For everyone’s best experience I will go ahead and mute this webinar. If you do have a question you can use the Chat box option on the lower left hand of your screen; you can also “raise your hand” if you experience any technical issues, we will do our best to assist you.
    As with all our webinars, everyone will be emailed a recording of today’s presentation within 48 hours
    This webinar is designed for those directly involved with managing a moodle/totara site, or anyone interested in finding out how plugins can enhance their moodle experience.

    Without further ado, I would like to introduce Chad Leaman and Ben Young

  • [Arnet]
    Our client, The Alberta Motor Association, is all too familiar with cheating. The AMA needed a better way to verify that the person taking the exam was also the same person using their new skills on the road. To ensure that the person taking the exam was the person receiving the certification, we developed for them the 2-Stage Verification Plugin  This allowed students to take the exam remotely without having to travel to testing centers.

    All of our clients receive standard plugin installation and support included their managed hosting package
  • Arnet (or Ben): One of the biggest benefits we bring to our clients is saving them time and anguish when it comes to figuring our which plugins to install, and more important, which ones to avoid. Our clients simply tell us what new features they want to achieve from their Moodle site, and we can recommend the best plugin to intall. No second guesses, no troubleshooting.

    All our managed hosting packages include review, upgrade, and the setup of plugins. As an Official Moodle partner we’re able to offer ongoing maintenance of plugins through our applications support services.
  • Provide them with further reading/information i.e. We have a large collection of recorded webinars on both moodle and totara that you can watch at your convenience…here are several of our more popular topics
