A modular and visual course format. Hides all topics and creates a grid of icons (one for each topic) with short titles. Clicking on an icon brings up the content from the corresponding topic in a "lightbox" style display.

Support:

The format comes with NO support.  Please see the 'Support' section in 'Readme.md' file that comes with the format.  This is because the format is complex and I regret that I don't have the time / resources to freely assist with questions pertaining to specific enhancements / changes / knowledge improvement.

I will investigate genuine bugs and issue fixes in a timescale set by myself.  When reporting issues you MUST clearly state the full version and release of both Moodle and the Grid format format as contained within their 'version.php' files - if not it takes me longer to figure out, often resulting in me asking for the details anyway and slowing the process of solving your problem down.  It really helps to upload and describe in detail the issue you are having on the 'Course formats' forum.

Screen cast:


More to follow as new icons have been added....

Privacy API support starts with V3.3.0.5 for M3.3 and V3.4.0.4 for M3.4 where the API has been implemented in the minor release of Moodle.

    I'm getting a debugging notice

    Notice: Undefined property: stdClass::$students in /var/www/clients/client22/web41/web/course/format/grid/format.php on line 21

    Other than that seems to be working fine.

    Hi Julian

    Seems to be re-writing the topic names in the navigation block and only showing those topics that have an activity or resource beyond a label. See http://www.flickr.com/photos/kerryank/6349274976/in/photostream for a screen shot with explanation.

    Cheers
