Record audio question type 1.4 for Moodle 3.9+

Moodle 3.9, 3.10, 3.11
Released: Wednesday, August 11, 2021, 10:16 PM

Changes in 1.4

  • Improvement to the user flow when staring a video recording. Now, the first click on the button is 'Start camera', which just turns the camera on, so it can auto-focus and do it's white balance, and so you can check you are happy with what you are seeing. Then you click again to 'Start recording' when you are ready.
  • When creating a question with multiple inputs, the question author can set a different time limit for each.
  • And, the admin can set a different maximum allowed time limit for audio and video.
  • We tie into the changes in Moodle 3.11+ where, when you create a new question, it remembers the options you selected last time, and uses the same option for the new question, making it quicker to create a lot of similar questions.
  • Various improvements to the on-screen text and help.
  • Fixed a bug leading to the Notice "currentcontext passed to repository::get_instances was not a context object".
