Spoodle is a small 'offline moodle / moodle on a stick / portable moodle' project we’d set up and shared last year that we put together to help support distance learners with limited internet access.
The super short version is as you get a student who may have no connectivity but wants to continue their studies, you can backup the course from your ‘real’ Moodle, quickly launch this already-set-up local copy of Moodle (which you’ve already added your logo and any relevant plugins to), import this backup and send it out via USB. Student plugs it in, clicks start, everything launches up, no net required.
Anyway! Happy to report have now put together a new version using the new Boost theme and Moodle 3.3 (as well as up to date 3.1 and 3.2 versions if closer to your current moodle)
In addition, have also changed the first part of how we were setting it up, now directly adapting the moodle.org Windows installer, which seems to have helped speeds which seemed to be an odd issue for some people in the earlier version – fingers crossed
some video instructions. Two out of four up so far, and will keep editing the
ones on ‘how to customise’ and ‘how to set up for a student’ clips through the
because having put together this new version then stopped and realised ‘How do
I let those people who were interested before know we’ve put something new up? Oops’
, have a mailing list over in the right column of the site (or here) for letting people
know! I promise it won’t be used to fill your email with crap, just the occasional
version update as Moodle updates.
If you find it useful, or feedback, as before drop me an email any time as well!
