The module enables a teacher to create a resource using the text editor. The resource can display text, images, sound, video and web links. Advantages of using the External content module rather than the standard page module is that optionally if the content links to an external site that records a completion status these can then be imported.

The module enables a teacher to create a resource using the text editor.

The resource can display text, images, sound, video and web links.

External content activities and Single Activity courses can be bulk loaded and updated using moodle-tool_uploadexternalcontent

Advantages of using the External content module rather than the standard page module is that optionally if the content has links to an external site that records a completion status  the completion can then be imported using moodle-tool_uploadexternalcontentresults

With release 1.6 the module now supports XAPI Tracking, the module implements basic LRS Statement API functionality.

This allows an Activity Provider (AP) to send statements for External Content Activity items, that can be used to set the Moodle Viewed status, External Completed status and scores for the item.

The External Content Activity items need to be configured to be marked completed externally when created.

The xAPI statements are not saved to Moodle, but processed on receipt.

    Hi, this is look interesting, but we still confuse "if the content has links to an external site that records a completion status the completion can then be imported using moodle-tool_uploadexternalcontentresults", can you give sample of website that offer completion to try?
