Moodle plugins directory: Java Molecular Editor
Java Molecular Editor
The JME editor can be used to design molecular structures, so you
can ask questions such as "Please draw the structure of
2,3-dichloro-but-2-ene". In order to mark responses, they need to
be converted to a simple text format called SMILES (see
http://www.daylight.com/smiles/ for more information).
The content of the student response is automatically saved when the
student change page in the quiz either by pressing on the "Next"
button, or using the quiz navigation panel. When quiz attempt is
submitted, this response is then marked in the same way as a
(case-sensitive) short-answer question.
You can use a similar process when designing the question. Using
the JME applet, design a molecule that is a possible (right or
wrong) answer and then press a button next to the answer boxes
to store the current design as a SMILES code.
I understand and sympathise.
Thanks for highlighting qtype_pmatchjme, i see it too relies on the closed JME.jar but doesn't distribute it.
I will discuss this further as i do, personally, feel its not fair too.
I'm OK to approve this IF (and only if):
1) We give users FULL information on the dependency and what they need to do, in the description of this plugin and also qtype_pmatchjme.
2) We make it explicit that JME is closed source and that we cannot vouch for it. The risk is all theirs to judge from the JME web site.
I've added a FAQ here to clarify this: http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Plugin_validation#Q:_I.27ve_a_plugin_to_share_that_requires_closed_.28or_non-GPL_compatible.29_source_software._Can_i_share_this_in_the_plugins_directory.3F
Jean-Michel, installation and using the plugin was no issue for me so i'll wait for the required changes to description before approving this.
I tried to modify description and Potential privacy issues accordingly to your comments. But as English is not my native language, I would feel more comfortable if somebody else can verify the text. Fell free to edit it.
Nice work on the quick start to change this!

I am sorry but I am now retired and I stopped Moodle coding. So I will not publish new versions and this plugin needs a new maintainer
I am finishing my degree at Informatics Engineering and I am trying to upgrade this applet to Moodle 3.6, but I don't know how to do it. I have the JSME code and the applet one, and I am trying to update it by basing in anothers Moodle applet (like the algebra one), but it still doesn't work. Can someone help me?
