    I really like this plugin and would like to do a blog post on it for our monthly moodle.com plugins blog posts if that's Ok? Could you explain please how to prevent students from rating/starring posts they have created themselves?

    Hi Mary. There is not a way currently to do this. If a user has a role that allows them to rate posts, they can rate any posts, including their own. But if you think it would be a valuable feature, feel free to propose it on Github. smile

    I really like the look of this plugin, though I have not installed it as of yet. We run the DeliverComputing360 website. Some of the courses we run require students to create a mood board. I think this plug has potential as you can add images and text.

    Question 1:- Can you add sounds, video and animation?
    Question 2:- The exam board does not like items in straight lines, can the student rotate the images to make it like a mood board?
    Question 3:- Can you drag items to overlap, so they are grouped?

    Sorry to ask so much. Thank you.
