This plugin is part of a set of plugins belonging to the socialwall course format https://github.com/synergylearning/moodle-format_socialwall
This is a new filter than can be turned on for the course that will convert a URL resource type http link that is added and will grab the title and a photo similar to how facebook does from the remote website to display it on the course page. If you use the course format socialwall and filter is active then:
- Students may select an image and edit a description for substitution when posting a link
- Teacher may select or change an image and a description for any existing mod url
