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: . 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 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 Jeremy,

    Thanks for reporting it, it's fixed in the latest release (2.1). Please report bugs in the next time.

    Would be nice if it worked with 2.2, or there was some response on the bug tracker . . . .

    Hi Tomasz,
    I noticed in the mod_form for adding an instance some reference to old customization process (by teacher) seems to be still there.
    It should be removed as new file management do not allow this kind of flexible customization any more, unless we rebuild some way to let teacher store image overrides somewhere.... cheers.

    I am on Moodle2.2 with FlashCard mod_flashcard_moodle23_2012071800.
    Even with WYSIWYG editor and file picker, i still have the problem everyone is talking about. i don't see the images when logged in as a student. The student version is looking for the image at pluginfile.php/933/mod_flashcard/question/47/cremello.jpg

    I'm running 2.4.1 with mod_flashcard 2012080800.
    Using Summary By User only show 25 students. Is there a way to show all students?

    Hi Tomasz,

    I am currently using Flashcards v.2012080800 on Moodle v.2.2.1.

    I am able to use the 'Import' option to paste question/text and import the flashcard sets. But I want to essentially bulk import images too into the flashcards. Any possibility of doing that? I tried simply using the image URL in the import fields (separated by the field separators) but it doesn't work.

    Is it possible to pull in questions from a question bank? I am unable to see that option on the modules settings page.

    Please advice!

    Thank you.

    Hi Tomasz,
    This is a great plugin.

    I think it will be even better if you add the following English language string along the lines of:

    $string['modulename_help'] = 'The flashcard module allows editing and playing flashcards. Flashcards are a memory training device that uses the concept of repetition. Checking a flashcard deck will present the student the couples of relationships to be memorized. More often the associations are reviewed, deeper the memorization will be engraved into our memorial circuits.';

    The modulename_help string is the explanation a teacher gets when he chooses to add an activity by way of the activity chooser in Moodle 2.3 upwards. Most Moodle core plugins and many addons already have such a string.

    I hope you can add this new english language string.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
