Hi Nadav,

 

We use this plugin and are very happy with it. But now that we're moving to Moodle 2, it doesn't seem to work - it seems that the format of quiz and question previewing is different from Moodle 1.9.


Have you happened to make a Moodle 2  version of this filter?

 

Thank you,

Lea

I had forgotten about this, so thanks for the reminder. The problem with this feature is security, as I say in the linked bug report - and I still don't have a really good idea how to solve that, but I have been thinking about it because implementing this is on our todo list at the OU. (Not very near the top, but it is on the list.)

I have a sort of experimental implementation but right now I don't have the time to finalize it. It works in the Dataform and may be populated to the course page in various ways including the Dataform autolink filter. An illustration of that (with the Dataform embedded resource) could be found at http://substantialmethods.com/subject/view.php?id=6&topic=1. The page should display an embedded random question from the list. I've added so far only a few of the available question methods. So many options and so little time to document them all. smile

Hi Itamar,


Thank you for posting this example. It looks great. Could you possibly share the code for it?

Thanks
Lea

I'm definitely planning to share it as soon as it is ready for sharing. I have a list of other developments that I'm currently preparing for sharing, so it may take some time. smile

I'm excited about this filter and will be testing it very soon. The security issues are not as significant for me, although I look forward to enhancements in the future.

I noticed that the latest update was last month... So do you consider this filter to be in active development?

Personally, I consider it essential to a number of important endeavors! Thank you for your work on it!

~Brendan

When you say "this filter" where is the code?

Hi, Tim. I meant the attachment on the referenced page, http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-17314 ... which didn't work for me.

Incidentally, based on what I'm learning, I could probably achieve what I'd like (e.g., embedding quiz questions and other activities elegantly and directly in course e-readings) by using Moodle as an LTI provider and WordPress or something as an LTI consumer.

Might that be about right?
