I have installed this beautiful plugin a few weeks ago (Moodle 2.3.1). And we (the Teachers) are very happy with it!
So I recommand any of you considering using the CLOZE question type in Moodle 2+ to install and use the Moodle CLOZE editor
I'm having a tough time installing this. Would you please list the steps you took? I'm using the latest Moodle. THANKS!
I forgot to say that it would not be too difficult to upgrade this editor to be a Moodle 2.4 TinyMCE plugin with the added benefit that it could be installed without patching any Moodle core file.
If a developer is interested by this project a documentation is available.
I'm modified plugin clozeeditor for Moodle 2.4. See the attached zip-archive
- Сopy the contents of the archive into the directory lib/editor/tinymce/plugins/
- Visit Site administration ► Notifications for installation plugin
Вutton "Cloze Editor" will be on the editor in second row after the button "Direction right to left".
Hi Vadim, Hi All,
there is an update available for Moodle 2.4 from the plugin website at http://projects.ael.uni-tuebingen.de/quiz/htmlarea. That one is based on the latest version of code, which includes reverse parsing of the syntax (the package you attached above doesn't have that, as it seems to be based on a much older version of our code).
Installation process is identical to what you described:
- Place the contents of the archive in lib/editor/tinymce/plugins/
- Go to Site administration ► Notifications to install the plugin
Updating from your version should also be straightforward, just replace the old directory "clozeeditor" and go to "Notifications".
Thank you very much, Andreas
it seems to be based on a much older version of our code
Yes, it is, reworked from version for Moodle 2.1 or, may be, 1.9
Our lecturers which use the cloze question type love this editor! A question: Is it planned to develop the cloze editor any further? The point is that Moodle 2.7 as an LTS release probably comes with another text editor (http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Developer_meeting_January_2014#Editor_replacement_.28Damyon_Wiese.29) --> "Tending towards Atto, with a CKEditor in the Plugins directory for those who want it."
see for example https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=181570
it is not planned, no. We currently lack the resources to migrate the tool to a different editor.
That said, it should be quite manageable to do so for someone else, given that the "new" choice of editor is as easily "pluggable" as TinyMCE.
Alternatively, you could use this website to generate your CLOZE quizzes: http://projects.ael.uni-tuebingen.de/quiz/htmlarea/index.php
Hi, Thanks for giving cloze zip file.
Oh, ok. Thanks very much!
The cloze plugin add-on for TinyMCE is available at https://moodle.org/plugins/view.php?plugin=tinymce_clozeeditor for Moodle branches 1.9 and 2.x.
It even works in Moodle 2.7 provided that you choose TinyMCE as your default (profile) personal (or site default) text editor.
I think this add-on makes writing Cloze question types very easy, fast and rather syntax-error-free for most/many/some teachers
Unfortunately, the main developer no longer has the resources to adapt it to the new Atto editor . Any volunteers?
Some people have suggested that this add-on might be a good idea for inclusion in future core branches. After all, writing good questions is a basic need in Moodle and question types add-ons are a very well developed moodle expansion.
