My follow OU developers John Beedell, Mahmoud Kassaei and I have been have just finished creating a couple of nice plugins at the request of our product owner Chris Nelson. Chris is going to write a blog post explaining this in more detail. I think that will appear on medium.com soon.
The idea is that you should be able to embed questions from the question bank anywhere in Moodle, for example into Book or Page resources, or even into Labels or Forum posts. This is something that has been talked about for ages.
There are two integrated plugins:
- filter_embedquestion for displaying the question
- atto_embedquestion for inserting the necessary code when editing content.
As I write, those plugins DB entries have not been approved, so if you want a sneak peak, you will need to get them from github (https://github.com/moodleou/moodle-filter_embedquestion).
Here is an example of a question in a Page resource: (I wish I had chosen a better question when generating the screen-grab!)
(I want to acknowledge that we are not the first people to create something like this, but we wanted an implementation that worked in a particular way, particularly in regards to security.)
