Block: *Random content

Type: Block
Requires:
Status: Contributed
Maintainer(s):

This block allows to show randomly the titles of the chapters of a book (book module). And when you click on one of the titles you go to a chapter of the book. A possible utility would be to create books like FAQ or Did you know... or Tip of the Day and then add in a course blocks associated with these books.

In the configuration of each instance of the block you must choose:

  • which book will be used
  • the number of items to show
  • the title that appears on the block (if left blank will use the title of the book).

The available books will be those in the course, in the metacourses of the course and those in the site page.

In Moodle 1.6 version while configuring a block it is possible to choose a hidden book but the block will not be showed until the book is available. Furthermore titles of hidden chapters will not be showed in the block.

In Moodle 1.9 version while configuring a block it is possible to choose any book (in the course, metacourse and site) but the block will be showed only to users with permission to see that book (roles). Furthermore titles of hidden chapters will not be showed in the block.

All texts in English and Español-Internacional (es).
