format_folderview
Moodlerooms is proud to release Folder View, a course format that displays activities and resources within a folder that is expandable or collapsible. This course format can display all folders on a page or a single folder at a time with previous and next topic navigations or a jump-to menu, which each allow the student to easily navigate between folders. Editing functionality is consolidated for the course into an area at the top of the page. This course format mimics many of the features of ANGEL folders, making previous ANGEL users feel more at home within a Moodle environment. The plugin was also developed with an eye towards consolidating the editing functionality in Moodle's Topics and Weeks course formats.

Moodlerooms is proud to release Flexpage, a course format that provides a teacher with complete control over how educational materials and assessments are presented to a student. Flexpage allows a teacher to create a flexible set of pages and sub pages where blocks and activities can be placed in any location on the page instead of being restricted to a right, left or center column. Flexpage courses provide teachers with the ability to determine how many columns of data are contained within a course (up to three-columns). This allows teachers to have complete control over how they want to present course materials and assessments to students.
