The Weekly Writer Club is nearing the time it will upgrade from 1.9 to 2.0. We'd like to install a quiz and game module for the first time. When is your best guess that Hot Pot will be stable for use in 2.0? Also, is there a combination of modules that work well together....QuizPort, Xerxe....? Should we stick with QuizPort if HotPot is going to be replaced.....in future versions (as it says in the notes)? We love the interactive games for learning Language Arts. Thanks for your hard work and your help!
HotPot for Moodle 2.0 is pretty stable. The only problem I know about is that the display creeps up in some themes.
If you are already using QuizPort, then I suggest you sitck with Moodle 1.9, until TaskChain for Moodle 2.0 is ready, as TaskChain will take over from both HotPot and QuizPort.
I expect the preliminary version of TaskChain to be publically available this summer.
Thanks, Gordon. I am looking forward to developing HotPot activities for Language Arts. I'm grateful for the work you are doing!
HotPot works fine in standard Moodle 1.9 - no installation necessary, but you may need to enable it
- Site administration -> Plugins -> Activity modules -> Manage activities
Upgrade from there to HotPot for Moodle 2.0 is working well - as far as I know
