I put together an iTunesU launcher block for Moodle back in September
but it wasn't quite "up to snuff" to release to the public.
I'm reworking it now, adding enough features and flexibility in order to
be able to permanently do away with hardcoding any settings.
For anyone who has worked with BOTH iTunes U and Moodle, could you
give me some feedback for how flexible you would like the following
(Disclaimer: requires passing familiarity with iTunes U API and interface organization.)
I'm using the Moodle course ID to map to the iTunes U identifier.
However, because of the organization of iTunes U
pages/categories/courses and whatnot, I wanted to be able to add
optional prefixes to the Moodle-generated credentials.
However, now that my institution has two Moodle instances which are
organized differently (particularly course categories), the original
scheme isn't working.
I'm putting together a conceptual mapping scheme now, and want to know
if I'm missing some flexibility that other people would need.
At the global level, I want the administrator to be able to able to add to the identifier aspect of credentials as follows:
At the instance level, I want the administrator to able to:
- add to the instance identifier as follows:
- override the instance identifier entirely:
- override the global pre/postfix options at the course level:
So, all that said (and if it lacks clarity, I can elaborate), have I missed any probable scenarios?
were to install a Moodle iTunes U block, what would you like to see?
