Hi Mark and Matt,
Thank you both for your quick answers.
We are currently developping this plugin and we are supposed to finish it for April. I hope you will be able to try it soon !
Our purpose is to create a tool for students which could help them learning interactively with other students. It could be useful if some information were missing in the presentation document or to make a note, a precision about the course.
The notes and questions/answers are ordered by page number. Actually, when someone posts a message, he is asked a page number related to his note/question. If the page number is not given, then it is stored in a special category for non-indexed pages.
Upvotes are a second classification method. Students and professors can upvote a question simply by clicking the related button in the desired post. The most upvoted questions/answers will be on the top of the category.
The live I talked about in my previous post is a function that the professor can activate or not. Follow the live means to be redirected to the page currently consulted by the teacher. If a student does not follow this live,he will be able to progress at his own rhythm.
Technically speaking, we developped a activity plug-in called ILE (Interactive Learning Environment).
The teacher create a new "ILE-activity” and upload his course. This course is sent to "ILE-server” (we will provide the code files for this server in addition to the plug-in). When a student want to acces to the "ILE-activity”, he clicks on the activity a link to the resource is displayed. It redirects to the screen given above, which is actually a website.
If a point remains unclear, feel free to ask me, I'll try to answer you as best as I can.
