Release of NanoGong with Moodle 2 Support - version 4.2.3
 

Hi there,

You may be interested to know that we have released an update (4.2.3) of the NanoGong plugin for Moodle 2.

  • NanoGong now works in the TinyMCE editor in full screen mode (thanks to Stefan Oertel!)
  • Previously, warning messages were sometimes displayed when using the NanoGong activity module, these have now gone (thanks to Kirill Astashov!)
  • Previously, when a teacher wants to enter a grade, the form is not displayed correctly in the web page; this has now been fixed 
  • There has been a change of name of the button from 'Cancel' to the more appropriate word 'Close' when viewing a NanoGong recording in the TinyMCE editor
  • Dutch language pack is now included (thanks to Joost Elshoff!)

All information about NanoGong, including videos, demonstrations and downloads, is available at the NanoGong web site:

Thanks!

Dear Prof. David,

I’ve just downloaded and installed a NanoGong from http://nanogong.ust.hk/ on my Moodle.  The java applet is able to launch but every time after recording, the voice message cannot be played with the following error displayed:

 

I’m using the latest Nanogong 4.2.3 on my Moodle 2.3.1.  When I browse the HTML source, the file at "http://my.moodle/draftfile.php/xx/user/draft/yyyyyyyyy/yyyymmdd123456.spx" is found.  Moreover, I find a lot of "yyyymmdd123456.spx" files in the database.  Do you know what is the problem with my installation?  Could you please help?  Thanks a lot.

Regards,

Murphy

I"m seeing the same problem as Murphy Wong describes on a sporatic basis. The 'new improved' nanogong works pretty well on our Moodle 2.2.4+ installation about 85% of the time. But occasionally we see the message as shown in Murphy's post & occasionally we will get a course in which we can ADD the recording but can't play it back. I am *so* happy to have nanogong back but the erratic-ness worries me a bit.

Update: I think I have found out why nanogong will fail to playback a recording in some courses. If the filters for the course has been set with HTML tidy turned 'on' then nanogong won't playback a recording. So if you also encounter this problem, try this troubleshooting idea: go to Course Administration --> settings --> Filters & make sure your html tidy is set to off.
