> Which files go where?
The quizport folder from the zip file goes into the "mod" folder on your Moodle site. Then login to Moodle as a user with admin privileges and you should see some messages saying the QuizPort module is being installed.
all the best
Thanks. I did just that but the module will not appear in on my moodle activities list when I am looking at the administration page of my moodle. I never saw any message when I logged in as an administrator. Have you had others with similar issues? Any suggestions?
actually Phillipe said he had trouble installing QuizPort:
server so I can come and set up QuizPort for you? Please contact me privately by email if you would like me to try:

thanks again for giving me access to your Moodle site.
As I mentioned in our private email exchange, the reason that QuizPort would not install was an error. caused by some PHP 5 only syntax. Your server is running PHP 4.4.7. I have now fixed that problem and QuizPort is installed on your server, ready for you to use.
I have put the PHP4 compatible code into the main QuizPort download, so if anybody else using PHP4 was having trouble installing QuizPort (Phillipe are you still there?) please download the latest version when you have the chance.
Yes I'm still hanging in there!
Thanks for the push! I'm going to give it a try asap and will report back to you.
Gordon you're a genius!
Not only does your latest improvement work like a breeze (installing was flawless) but what I found inside was positively brilliant!
Now the only thing I need is bullets to prove my administration your module is absolutely safe.
'Wonder where I might start...as I told you, It's one of the largest univ in France. They don't want to risk anything (understandable I suppose)
Thumbs up once again!
Great news Phillipe! Thanks for the feedback. It's good to know the installation went wihtout a hitch
I think what would be most persuasive is a demonstration of some "adaptive" learning materials you could make using a "smart" chain of Hot Potatoes quizzes.
For example, you could make a chain of 3 JMatches followed by a JCloze. The JMatches prepare the students for the vocab to be used in the JCloze. Each JMatch has 12 items of which 8 are displayed, but each JMatch presents the vocab in a different media, e.g. text-text, pictures + audio words, word text + audio sentences.
Add pre-conditions so that each quiz can only be attempted once the previous quiz has been finished. Add post-conditions to the JMatch quizzes so that if they get over 80% then can go on to the next quiz, otherwise they have to retake the same quiz.
Something like that would work. You can probably think of something far more interesting and methodologically sound, perhaps using HotPots you have already created.
Sorry there aren't any tutorials or written instructions on what to do yet, but if you are familiar with how the HotPot module does things, you already know how to create quizzes on your PC, upload them to Moodle and add them in one go as a "chain". The difference is that now a "chain" remains a single learning object. Moodle refers to it as a QuizPort activity.
