It is nearly three weeks since close to 300 Moodlers were gathered in Ireland for the Moodlemoot Dublin 2013. I would have blogged earlier, but things got in the way. This blog post just looks at some parts of the Moot from my memory.
I have included some of the images tweeted by the attendees – with attribution – if anyone wants theirs removed let...

Course sequencing allows for instructors to define a learning path through a given curriculum. It allows the course creator to define pre-requisite conditions between courses that are enforced by the LMS.
With Moodle 2 completion dependencies can be defined for a course, whereby course B can only be marked complete if course A is complete....

I wasn’t expecting to go to the UK and Ireland MoodleMoot 2013 in Dublin this year, but at the last(ish) minute, I was encouraged to do so and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I was pleasantly surprised by the number of developers around – so much so that I regretted not signing up for the hackfest day at the end.
However, its not just to talk to like-minded...
There has been a lot of talk recently about responsive design and Moodle. Everyone has a view about it whether it is something to use or not use.
Before I bring up some points, I wanted to set down one definition of what responsive can be “to adapt the layout to the viewing environment”. It is a good idea to have a website look the best it can on an...
A few months ago, I was intrigued by a presentation by Dan Pink, an American public speaker. Here is a version of that presentation (and there are a few similar presentations around, including a TED talk).
In the presentation, Pink claims that extrinsic motivators, specifically financial...

All the things I said I was going to do in December, I did. But that’s all a bit dull, so I’m not going to say any more about that.
I’ve just set up the test server for our March r...

Oh dear, it's my first blog post of the year. :)
There is probably something more interesting I could talk about, but we're getting a bunch of questions about 2.4 versions of OU plugins lately.
To recap the OU schedule:
63 issues have been successfully integrated with 11 rejected and 0 delayed. That is 85% success, will we beat it ever?
After a lot of discussions, seeking alternatives, confronting them, the integration team has published one backporting policy aiming to steady stable branches. Take a look to it and...
Over the last couple of months I’ve been working on the specification for a new module for our student-facing Moodle. It will replace a number of bespoke websites that are currently running to offer the same functionality.
The elevator pitch is that design students in a bricks & mortar university have a room they can go to, usually called the...
61 issues have been successfully integrated with 11 rejected and 5 delayed. That is 85% success, not bad, but still...
After all the QAs and major and minor releases, we are back to normal, peace & calm!
But there is not much time to relax, we are just some days away to finish all the planning for...
