Job offered: Develop a Plugin for Teaching Keyboard Shortcuts
Hi, I am looking for a developer to build me a Moodle plugin for a very specific question type. Here's some background on my project and my requirements. I want to design an e-learning course that teaches people how to use digital audio workshop (DAW) music production software. A central part of learning workflow with this (or pretty much any) software is learning all of the keyboard shortcuts. For example Apple Logic Pro X (the DAW that I use) has 586 shortcut keys right out of the box.
My core requirement for the plugin would be that the learner is asked what is the keyboard shortcut needed for a particular function of the software. The student will be required to enter the correct keyboard shortcut, which could be quite a complex combination of keys. Here's an example from the Logic Pro X software:
Question: What is the Keyboard Shortcut to Set All Tracks to Automation Touch Mode?
Answer: CTRL + SHIFT + CMMD + T
To execute that command in Logic Pro X via keyboard shortcut requires those four keys to be pressed. I want the plugin to be able to recognise whether that (or any other specified) combination of keys has been pressed, and in doing so inform my learner that they have answered the question correctly.
Also, here's a link to a discussion thread I started on my requirements on Moodle forums.
An example of the question type functionality I require can be found here:
This should be a general purpose question type plugin for Moodle (not specific to Logic Pro X). Once complete my intention is to add the plugin to the Moodle open source plugins library so it can be freely used by all members of the Moodle community.
