In the scope of my research and to solve a requirement of some teachers and pupils in my school I’m developing a search block by metadata: Search LOs-metadata.
This block allows you to search all the resources and activities, inside a course, in the user courses, or in all the courses, since the resources have been previously annotated with metadata LOM or metadata DCMES (see this post for more details: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=46942#229398 ).
This block can be tested in http://www.vgportal.ipb.pt/vg-learning.htm with visitor access (search for \"programa\" or \"exemplo\" )
But if you want to add metadata use
http://www.vgportal.ipb.pt/vgportal/moodle/course/view.php?id=46 with the account:
Name of user: formador
I will appreciate all commentaries and suggestions to improve the block and modules…
If someone is interesting in see this simple block and modules I can send… However, the work is not finished…
Thanks for any help and assistance you can provide!
