IMPORTANT NOTE FOR PLUGIN ARCHIVE AVAILABILITY : due to the large amount of plugins supported, it is NOT affordable for us to update moodle.org packages. Please use the Source Control urls to our github to get plugins archives

Important information.

The flashcard module was originally written by Valery for 1.9. It was hosted on the old Moodle plugins database, there was also an version initially ported to Moodle 2.

Tomek took over the work on it, finished porting into Moodle 2 and done few releases on the new plugins database page (this one). The latest version of this module is 3.2 and is available on github: https://github.com/tmuras/Moodle-Flashcard . It includes set of fixes from alekiy that should get it to work on Moodle 2.5. You can use it but this development is dis-continued.

Valery has now updated his branch of flashcard module into Moodle 2.5. The source code is https://github.com/vfremaux/moodle-mod_flashcard and the latest release is also on this, new plugins database as 2.4.0 (Build 2012040100). This is the branch you should be using now.

Both versions of flashcard module have diverged and are not compatible with each other. It's not possible to easily switch from one version (3.1 or 3.2) to another (2.4.0) without re-installing (and hence loosing all data).

    Hi,
    We just installed Flashcard on Moodle 2.4.5+ (Build: 20130802). It looks like a great tool however on our edit screen there are two links that are missing:

    Question media type

    and Media type for answers.

    Attached are two screen shots, the first on is of my screen and the other is from the documentation for Flashcard.
    https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=244147

    http://docs.moodle.org/24/en/Flashcard_module:_Configuration_Parameters#Media_Type_Selectors_.285.29

    Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

    Jeff

    Hi Jeff, would you consider trying the version published here :

    https://github.com/vfremaux/moodle-mod_flashcard

    We checked with Tomaz that we might not remerge our both diverging tracks but follow up with the rework i followed up starting from Tomaz's one but reintegrating proper use of moodle new file storage for media files.

    I waited for access to the plugin publication entry to revise the plugin version packages on Moodle. This seems to be now writable again. Communication will be pushed in soon.

    Thanks Valery, that worked.
    FYI for anyone using Flashcard you cannot use .wav files, MP3 worked just fine.

    We are just now upgrading to Moodle 2.6 and would like to install Flashcards. Will the latest version work or should we wait until it is updated for 2.6?

    We can expect some minor deseases if soem part of very central APIs still change... on Flashcard, i do not forecast much trouble though. I have a fresh 2.6 installed version but no time yet to make it run... Moodle is evolving too fast those months to keep abiity to follow all tracks by my own...

    if you have occasion andt some possibiity to make tryouts on a test instance, this would probbly speed up the process to get some "testing session report". I have yet not so much time to make end user testing, but can eventually free some time for bugfix on focussed issues.... Cheers !

    Hello,
    I have just tried to install this flashcard module and received the error shown below. I followed the "more information" option and it suggested that it might be appropriate to contact the developer. If this is not the right place, I can move it to a forum. I'd sure like to be able to use this module. Thanks for any help in advance. Rod Wolford

    Updating from 2012080800 to 2014010600 on Moodle 2.6.1, getting EXACTLY the same error as Rodney Wolford and Andreas Grupp.

    This seems a break in the upgrade chain between branches... Could you try the following : Revert the flashcard in version 2012040201 in the table mdl_modules of Moodle, and rerun the updater...

    Note that the flashcard upgrade chain discontinues the previous version from Tomaz Muras, as the model did have big shifts between both tracks...

    Valery, you mean to say that upgrading from 3.2 to 2.6 is impossible and needs to be completely reinstalled?

    Because "2012080800" that i'm upgrading from is 3.2.
