Hi,

I have published my new module "Unilabel" which is waiting for approval yet. The last version you can download on github:

https://github.com/grabs/moodle-mod_unilabel/archive/MOODLE_35_STABLE.zip

It would be really nice if someone could try this out. If you find it usefull please let me know.

Description

This module enables you to include some nice formated text on the course- or frontpage.

There are 5 different content types included (extendable sub plugins):

  • Simple text
  • Carousel
  • Collapsed text
  • Course teaser
  • Topic teaser

Usage

The configuration consists of two steps (except the "Simple text" type).
  1. The creation of a new instance by using the activity chooser.
  2. The configuration of the content depending on the content type you chose in the first step.

Description of the content types

Simple text
This content type just show the label as you already know
Carousel
In this content type you can define a series of images.
Each image is shown in a slide show.
You can also define a caption to each image that is show inside the slide item.
For each image you can define a url what makes the image to a clickable button.
The carousel is by default responsive to different screen sizes.
To optimize the responsivity to each of the images you can assigne a mobile optimized image.
This mobile image is shown on small devices smaller than 768 px.
Grid
In this content type you can define a series of images and contents/urls.
The grid is by default responsive to different screen sizes.
You can set a column count for the grid to define how many tiles are shown in one row.
On smaller screens the column count is reduced by a half of the defined count.
On mobile devices like cellphones only one column is shown.
To optimize the responsivity to each of the images you can assign a mobile optimized image.
This mobile image is shown on small devices smaller than 768 px.
If you have defined a content for a slide the content is shown as a modal dialog if you click the slide.
If you have defined a url for a slide on click the url is loaded.
Collapsed text
This content type offers you two options:
  1. a folded content
  2. a modal dialog containing the content.
Both types can be used with or without animation
Course teaser
Mainly intended to show on the frontpage it shows the titles and images of selected courses.
The presentation can be a carousel or a grid.
Each Item is a clickable button that brings the user to the related course.
Topic teaser
Mainly intended to show on the frontpage it shows the description of topics of a selected course.
The topics will be shown as carousel or as grid.
If you click on such a shown topic a modal dialog shows the topic content.
