  11. 11. Plugins that have got my attention (Trawling the Moodle plugins directory so you don’t have to)
  12. 12. Group Choice This module allows students to enrol themselves in a group within a course. The teacher can choose from which groups the students can chose, and the maximum number of students allowed in each group. Depending on the activity settings, the students can view the members of each group before making a choice, and change their selected group until the deadline.
  13. 13. One Topic Format Format to course that allows showing each topic in a tab, keeping the current tab between calls to resources, in such a way that when it returns from a module as the blog or the glossary it returns to tab from where you started. This format is based on the Moodle standard format: “Topics”. It accepts edition by AJAX.
  14. 14. Notifications Block Not always logged in, you want to be up to date about new content, discussions or events in your Moodle courses? This moodle block implements a solution that periodically notifies learners about new content or activities included into a Moodle course. This solution will act as a sentinel that detects whether new contents or new activities have been included into the Moodle course, and notify the learners and/or the instructors about that. Notifications methods are: e-mail message RSS aggregator SMS message
  15. 15. Course Checks Block This block carries out a number of automated checks on a course, that are all user configurable. The checks were designed to encourage a minimum standard of course quality and highlight possible opportunities for improvement. The block also has the option to allow users to "clear down" a course, simply removing any sections that don't have content. It won't delete any sections that have content and/or a summary.
  16. 16. Sandbox Moodle plugin which programmatically restores courses to predefined course states. It can be used to provide playground moodle courses which will be cleaned periodically.
  17. 17. TaskChain The TaskChain module allows several elearning "tasks" to be connected together into a "chain" which forms a single Moodle activity. The activity is accessed by clicking on a link on a Moodle course page.
  18. 18. Mass Actions Block This block allows instructors to perform actions upon multiple resources or activities, rather than having to perform repeated actions on individual items.
  19. 19. File Trash Utility for listing, downloading and deleting orphaned files (file no longer referenced in the files db table but still present in the Moodle data and/or backup directory
  20. 20. Essential Plugins
  21. 21. Bootstrap Grid Essential Plugins Extends the Atto editor so that bootstrap grids can be inserted into user generated content.
  22. 22. ATTO Fullscreen Essential Plugins This plugin adds a button to the toolbar which will expand the Atto editing window to fill the entire browser window. All other parts of the page are hidden.
  23. 23. ATTO Chemistry Essential Plugins Edit chemistry equations in Moodle 2.7, or later, using the mhchem extension to the MathJax or TeX filter. Useful for full and ionic equations, isotopes, equilibrium reactions, thermochemistry and reaction kinetics. Includes a periodic table of element symbols.
  24. 24. Fullscreen Toggle Essential Plugins The Fullscreen toggle button expands the content area by hiding all side blocks. Themes based on bootstrapbase / clean theme are supported.
  25. 25. Course Contents Essential Plugins Course contents block produces a table of contents for the course - that is a list of all visible sections (topics or weeks) in the course. Clicking at one of these links will display that particular section.
  26. 26. Auto Enrol Essential Plugins Enrol users into a course automatically, either as they log into your Moodle site or as they click on the course. In addition the plugin has advanced functionality to support automatically grouping and filtering users based upon their attributes.
  27. 27. The next Learn Moodle MOOC will be starting on 17 January 2016 What’s going on in the Moodle World?
