New Module: Thesis Completion Tool
 
Hi,

There is new module for testing:

http://moodle.org/mod/data/view.php?d=13&rid=617

Project imagine that they don't need developer any more. While module is well coded, and none of bugs is known, it can't be ready. It needs more testing and feedback.

I wish I had had a thesis completion tool when I was doing my PhD.

(I was hoping this module was something that wrote your thesis for you, sadly that does not seem to be the case.)

Hi,

thank you for Thesis module, I wanted to test.
I copied thesis in moodle/mod, chown, chmod recursively to 755. When in admin, tables tried to update :

(mysql): CREATE TABLE `mdl_thesis_student` ( `id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment, `userid` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL default '0', `courseid` int(10) unsigned default '0', `company` varchar(255) collate utf8_unicode_ci default NULL, `thesissubject` varchar(100) collate utf8_unicode_ci default NULL, `thesissubjectmatter` varchar(255) collate utf8_unicode_ci default NULL, `thesisdescription` text collate utf8_unicode_ci, `degree` varchar(255) collate utf8_unicode_ci default NULL, `thesisinstructor` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL default '0', `thesissecondinstructor` varchar(255) collate utf8_unicode_ci NULL DEFAULT NULL, `thesisstarttime` int(10) NOT NULL DEFAULT NULL, `thesisendtime` int(10) NOT NULL DEFAULT NULL, `locked` int(4) NOT NULL default '0', PRIMARY KEY (`id`),) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 COLLATE=utf8_unicode_ci

Re: New Module: Thesis Completion Tool
 
Hi,

You found hardcoding sad Sorry.

Calendar has own languagefiles in thesis/jscalendar/lang-folder. There are over 30 languages.

This fix remove hardcoding. It's dirty because it doesn't check utf8, just only check that language file exists. And set language to english if there isn't any language file.

Better than nothing.

Re: New Module: Thesis Completion Tool
 
Tested the module and it works fine. I have some comments though.

The changes.txt indicates that the hardcoded calendar language was removed from view.php but the zip I downloaded I downloaded May 22, has not been updated.

I still had to change the following line to display tagalog, which by the way is not supported by the DHTML Calendar (posted my translation on their sourceforge page).

"<script type=\"text/javascript\" src=\"$jscalendardir/lang/calendar-tl.js\"></script> \n"

After I got this to work I noticed that the gantt chart is in English. There is no lang file in the Jgraph, is it hardcoded or does it rely on locale setting?

Lastly, the supervisor's comments did not appear in the page for students, are they sent via email or did I forget some setting?

Despite the above, it is a great module, hope it becomes standard.

Re: New Module: Thesis Completion Tool
 

I've tested the view.php file posted here and I found a problem with the following line. This conditional seem to return false in moodle 1.7+ on a windows platform.

if(!file_exists($CFG->wwwroot.'/mod/thesis/jscalendar/lang/calendar-'.$lang.'.js'))

And results in the calendar always displaying english. I changed the conditional to following, and it worked,


if(!file_exists('jscalendar/lang/calendar-'.$lang.'.js'))


For utf8, instead of adding code to test for utf8, simply rename all calendar lang files that are utf8 from:

calendar-tl-utf8.js

as an example to:

calendar-tl_utf8.js

that is, change the hyphen between the lang code and utf8 to an underscore, because the script:

$lang=current_language();

will return tl_utf8 (with an underscore!) and the view.php will not find it because of the mismatch in names.

I tried to install it but all i got was a little error message:

Tried to modify database, but "/var/www/localhost/htdocs/moodle/mod/thesis/db/postgres7.sql" doesn't exist!

So it seems to me, it won't work because we are using postgresql? Is your module compatible with postgresql? It seems there are on or two files missing. Could you fix this, please?

Nice module,

the student can set phases and conect evets to that. I was wondering how this student could also connect (promised) deliverables.

For inserting just hyperlinks, it must me able to edit <a href="">x</a> in the description box


In the project course format the teacher sets the assignments for the project.

If it is a problem to allow students to initiate new assignments, how about a list of - say 10 - empty assignments, the student can link to his thesis timetable?

(connection could be realised with a drop down box (zero is no connection, 1-10 is one of the others...)

Re: New Module: Thesis Completion Tool
 
Hi,

Good perception. Assignment was in the todo-list, but we didn't reach to implement itsad

Phase named assignment, which makes ready link to assignment.? Course base, which have ready assignments and which are in the Thesis phases list?

I'm out of project now, and haven't time to implement it. For Finnish universities is more important to get this module to Moodle delivery packet. What if professors and students like it, but administrators don't install it?

Backup and restore works, but I know, that Postgresql support and utf-8 migrate are still missing. What else? Testing and feedback, please.

Ari,
I installed the thesis module in Moodle 1.6 and it works well. I have the same issue as Lukasz Olek above, in the activities pull-down a modulename entry shows up at the bottom of the list instead of a "thesis" entry. If I click on it, the rest of the module functionality seems to work well.

I created a "thesis" folder in the mod directory to hold the module files, but it seems that Moodle doesn't pick up the "thesis" name for the list of activities. Any ideas on how to address this issue?

Check contract from:

Hi Ari
Thanks for doing this so quickly. I have two installations on the website - the live moodle 1.6.4 lives in /moodle so I have to put the other test moodle in a different folder.
I had a problem with the file that you sent. When I uploaded it, as a test student I could see the three tabs 'Profile' 'Phases' and 'Contract'. When I clicked on the 'Contract' tab I had just a blank page. So I got your original file and made the changes you suggested and this has corrected the problem. Maybe I did something to your file when I downloaded it!
I've attached my amendment here.
I don't have problems with the database at all - all the installations have gone through OK, and I have not had the error messages that Ali described. We do have odd problems with another Moodle at work - but that is running on a Windows server.
Thanks for all your work and help - this is going to help staff and students to plan their work so much better than they do at present!

Tool is planned so, that supervisor has own course for every student group. And she/he has as many courses as are groups. It's quiet complicate to change.

Why there should be many Thesis Completion Tools in one course? This is developed before Moodle's group feature.

Thank you for this thesis module.

I installed it and was able to add a thesis activity to a course.

I have 2 questions:

1-
The only thing I was asked to do was to add the name of the thesis activity. When creating a quiz, I am asked about opening dates, closing dates, shuffing questions, etc. The only thing this activity asked was the name / title. Is this all, or is there more that I am missing?

2-
Also, student names were not selectable - the names were there, but they were not links, and could not be selected. Any ideas on how to fix this?

I am using Moodle 1.7.

I used the latest thesis code, thesis097.zip, on March 17, 2007.

Dear Joe,

Idea is, that
1. Teacher/supervisor add students to course.
2. Students fill their Thesis Contracts and when it is ready, send it to supervisor for approval.
3. Student name will become active link, when she/he has written something to contract.

Fill first contract and phases as student, so You understand better.

There should be course example which make idea more clearer, but is should be done by them who get salary from project. I'm out of project and just volunteer.

During last 2 months, when there has been statistics, module is downloaded over 250 times to over 60 countries. English speaking countries are naturally the largest groups, but to Spanish speaking countries, Spain and Latin America, module is downloaded over 50 times. Are Spanish language files necessary?

Hi,

Unfortunately this tool was made during Moodle 1.6, before groups.

Project has ended. I'm still interested in to work with this tool, but not without salary any more.

Hi,

What Moodle version do You have?

If version is 1.7 or above, copy zip's en_utf8 - folder to tr_ut8 -folder and then it copy to moodledata/lang-folder in the server.

Then go as admin to Languages-Language Editing -page, select select turkse as current language and then Edit word or phrases.

Thesis file is quite end of the list. Just change English to Turkey. And then Edit help documents.
