"Tiles" format displays course topics as "Tiles", rather than as a list. When clicked,
tile content is displayed under the tile with an animated transition.
The layout adapts to different screen sizes and orientations.
each tile, activities can also be set to display as "sub-tiles".
The tile icon for each tile can be selected from a predefined set (i.e. the teacher does not need to upload images).
It is available at https://moodle.org/plugins/format_tiles
If you have a question, please let me know.
Awesome format, David! Any chance you could do a 3.2 version?
Kristin I wasn't planning to do a 3.2 version now, as it looks from the stats page at https://moodle.net/stats/ like usage of 3.2 and even 3.3 is dropping off at this point. I did try installing it into 3.2, hoping that it may just work as it was, but unfortunately it looked like there were going to be some things needed fixing.
I understand. I work with both Moodle and Totara and would need the 3.2 version for the Totara sites. Thanks again!
On each tile, the percentage complete is based on the number of activities that are marked as complete within each section, either by the student or automatically. This excludes labels as it does in other formats.
In the screen shot it's shown as a percentage, but there is an option in course settings to show it in the standard way if preferred (i.e. "Progress 3 / 4") instead.
In the next release I am planning a couple of minor fixes on this, and soon after adding some automated tests to ensure that the calculation is doing what it's supposed to do.
You would use the normal controls to set the completion criteria (e.g. students must view the activity, or students must achieve a certain grade etc). If you have set "Progress on each tile" to show under Course Admin > Edit settings then completion status will show on the tile as well.
Note that, as regards grade dependent completion tracking only (not view dependent tracking) there is a bug in plugin version 3.3.5 and earlier, which means that the completion status may not show correctly to students. This bug was fixed last week, and will go into the next release at moodle.org (version 3.3.6, probably within the next couple of weeks). In the meantime the fix is posted in the version at https://bitbucket.org/dw8/moodle-format_tiles/downloads/ if you need it.
