Using the Poodll Assignment Submission students can record audio, or video direct from their device, or even draw on a whiteboard, and submit to the Moodle assignment. It requires the Poodll filter to also be installed.

Using the Poodll feedback plugin it is also possible to respond to the student in the same medium in which they submitted. See the Poodll filter for more details. 

NB New users should use the: Cloud Poodll Assignment Submission

Its newer, lightweight, has no dependencies, stores everything in the cloud, and can transcribe student speaking

Use Cases


Oral presentations have become a common means of assessing students' understanding of the topics covered in a course of study. However, it is not always practical for each student to present live to their teachers and peers. Recorded audio and video submissions allow asynchonous assessment of presentations, allowing teachers to preserve valuable instruction time. Poodll Assignment Submission is perfect for remote learning contexts in which learners lack the opportunity to present in a shared physical space.

Speaking Practice

In language learning contexts, teachers are always searching for new opportunities to get their students speaking. Recorded mini-assignments give language learners the opportunity to practice basic skills such as self-introductions or presenting a unique aspect of their culture or homeland. Intermediate or advanced students might record extended monologues or unscripted conversations with classmates for assessment by the teacher.

Getting Started

Poodll Assignment Submission requires the Poodll Filter.

  1. Download and install the Poodll Filter. Be sure to read the support documentation.
  2. Visit: https://poodll.com/try-poodll and take a free trial

Then you can install Poodll Assignment Submission as usual from the Moodle plugins directory. Please see the Poodll Online Submission support documentation for more information on installing and using Poodll Assignment Submission.

    Hi Justin, some of my users are asking to use Poodl in a workshop. Do you have any plan for that ?
  • Justin Hunt

    I don't have a plan for that. But it could be possible. I would have to look into the workshop module a bit. So it might happen, but it probably won't happen in the next month or two.

    Hello, Is it possible to limit the max recorded file size by the "Maximum submission size" Assignment setting?
  • Justin Hunt

    Actually .... no. This really should be implemented though. If its an mp3 audio recording, you can achieve something by limiting the time allowed to record. But thats about it.

    Hi there! Thanks for this awesome plugin! I have two questions.

    1. When I tried to submit the assignment via moodle mobile app, it directed me to the browser and asked me to log on to the site to submit the assignment. Is it possible to submit within the app?

    2. When I was using ios devices, I can only upload video and files to submit the assignment but not audio recording. Do you know how I can solve this problem?

    Many thanks!

    I have a brand new locally installed version of Moodle (3.0.2) and I am attempting to get video submission and playback from my Android device to work reliably.
    I have the Poodll and Online Poodll filters installed. Both are the most recent versions as of this posts date.
    I am using your Tokyo servers for "recording".

    POST_MAX_SIZE = 300M

    1. Video recording, upload and playback from my Windows 10 computer seems to be working fine.
    2. On mobile (Android LG G3 phone), newly recorded video uploads are consistently failing with the error "File Could Not be Uploaded".
    3. When selecting a previously recorded video to upload from the Phone's photo gallery, videos I have recorded today fail to upload, but a video I recorded on July 13 using the same phone, uploads successfully. Not sure what the difference is other than lenght and size. None of which exceed course or server settings.
    Successfully upload video = 5.6MB (approx 7 seconds)
    All other videos that fail, range from 6 -10 MB.
    4. No videos playback on the mobile device regardless of origin. In other words, neither the one file I have been able to successfully upload from the phone will play back on the phone, nor will any videos uploaded from my computer playback on the phone.
    5. However, recording, uploading and Playback seem to work fine on demo.poodll.com from my mobile device, further deepening the mystery.

    Not sure what I am missing in the server configuration, but I could definitely use some feedback.

    For the Benefit of anyone else that might need help troubleshooting a similar issue.

    I discovered that my inability to upload videos from a mobile device appears to have been related to the PHP memory limit directive (memory_limit =) in the PHI.INI file being set too low.
    Default value was set to 32M. I increased value to 512M, as I would like users to be able to upload audio video content up to 300M.

    Seems to be working so far.
    Why this wasn't affecting video uploads from my desktop computer, I have no idea, and some clarity on this would be welcome. Perhaps it is related to Mobile browsers versus desktop in some way.

    On to the next issue.

    The PoodLL assignment submission works on 3.1 but the PoodLL Assignment Feedback needs some work still

    Hi Justin,
    We have installed PoodLL assignment submission on Moodle 3.1+ but we have an issue with the gradebook. Once you click on "Grade" for an individual student, the whiteboard appears on the left-hand side of the page whether or not you have selected PoodLL as a submission type.
    I have disabled the whiteboard everywhere in the site administration (including in PoodLL Filter) but it does not cure the problem. These are the plugins concerned:
    assignsubmission_onlinepoodll 1.5.9 (Build 2015121101)
    assignfeedback_poodll 1.0.6 (Build 2015121101)
    filter_poodll 2.8.6 (Build 2016061600)
    I would like to get rid of the whiteboard in the gradebook as we won't be using this feature in the assignements and it takes too much space on the screen.
    Hope you can help with this : )

    On iOS 10 devices this plugin does not work any more. Instead of the recorder, it displays the following message: "Your OS version is too low. Android requires version 4 or greater. iOS requires version 6 or greater."
    Presumably, it believes that iOS 10 is actually iOS 1.
    It would be great if this issue could be addressed. Thank you.
