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.

    I've asked Rob to remove the core patch prior to approving this plugin. Peace - Anthony

    With Moodle 2.3.4+ I'm getting error "Invalid table name {repository_helix_media_lib_cats}: name is too long. Limit is 28 chars"

    Moodle limited the size of table names to accommodate Oracle.
