UPLOAD, RESPOND, AND GRADE

Our Moodle Plugin gives Lecturers and Students everything they need

Lecturers and Students want to use Moodle in new and exciting ways and they want to use Video! The MEDIAL Moodle Plugin allows Lecturers to upload a new video or select existing content, and then either add this to Course Pages or create Video Assignments.

Students can then respond to the Video Assignments set by the Lecturer and also receive video feedback on their response via the Grade Book.

 

 


These are some of the many things you can do with the Moodle MEDIAL Plugin:




Video Upload and Transcode

Uploading Video & Audio to Moodle itself can be problematic in terms of storage and delivery of media content

MEDIAL provides a way of uploading media large files to a central publishing point stored off of Moodle and delivered as streaming media.



Video Assignments and Assessments

Video being used as a tool for Assessment is becoming commonplace but Lecturers and Students need a secure way of doing this

MEDIAL enables lecturers to create video-based assignments that students can respond to with video, safe in the knowledge that their content is secure.



Grade Book Integration

Making and uploading a video assignment is just the start of the process

MEDIAL Moodle Plugin hooks into the Moodle Grade Book allowing lecturers to view student video assignments and grade them all without leaving Moodle.



Streams to All Devices

There are a vast array of devices that can be used to playback media and users expect their device to be properly supported by whatever systems they use

MEDIAL does all of the hard work for you in terms of transcoding content to work across all devices from within Moodle.

    Hi. Thanks for sharing this plugin with the community.

    When trying to install the module, the following debugging warning is raised: "XMLDB has detected one TEXT/BINARY column (intro) with some DEFAULT defined. This type of columns cannot have any default value. Please fix it in source (XML and/or upgrade script) to avoid this message to be displayed."

    I noticed that your plugin is storing its settings in the mdl_config table rather that the mdl_config_plugins. In order to avoid $CFG bloat and potentional collisions, it is recommended to use get_config to pull the data out of mdl_config_plugins.

    Please try to avoid the closing PHP tags ?> at the end of files. They are not needed and they are known to cause troubles in certain situations.

    I am marking this as needing more work. Please re-schedule the plugin for re-approval once these issues are fixed. Thanks for your patience with the review and approval process.

    Please note, in order to have your plugin registered with the AMOS tool at lang.moodle.org, you will have to upload a new version with the lang/en/helixmedia.php file fixed at the line 25. Do not use the concatenation operator there as the current AMOS parser does not support that. Thanks in advance.

    Hi, David,
    We upgraded the moodle from version 2.7.2 to new version of moodle 2.8 yesterday. Unfortunately, the HLM server could not be connected. Something message like auth failed were shown. But still works well on the moodle 2.7.2.

    Hi David,
    We are using Moodle 3.1 and I found the completion track function is not working for the video activity. I've set "the student must view this activity to complete it", but after the students viewed the video, the track state didn't update.
    Would you please help with this issue?
    Thanks.

    Cheers,
    Lina

    Hi, Moodle 3.4 is supported. I think someone just forgot to include the correct option on the drop down menu when uploading the latest build of this plugin
