A fun set of games that can be associated with glossary terms and quiz questions. I have concerns about the quality of this plugin, though.
|Plugins survey usage
||A relatively widely use plugin as reported in the Plugins Usage Survey (2015). 28% in schools
||2.0 to 2.9
||No Moodle 3.0 version yet.
||A spurt annually, it seems
|Feedback about plugin
||Mostly reporting issues
||On Plugins directory and own Discussion forum.
||Nothing in the Git repo except a readme file
|Documentation and help
||Some, but not linked
||It's a simple concept, but not well explained. The games are easy to
set up, if you have an appropriate glossary/quiz in place. The games
themselves are not all intuitive either. It's only because they are
relatively familiar games that they are playable. This module can
contribute to grades, but it's not clear how.
||Lots of open bugs
||Basque, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, Dansk, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Spanish - Mexico, Turkish
|Dependencies||Glossary and Question bank
||When I tried to run this through the Code Checker, it crashed the server. On visual
inspection, there are a lot of coding problems, such as hard-coded HTML.
It doesn't attempt to comply with Moodle conventions.
||The games add their own CSS
||Implements own input filtering system.
||Most games are not usable without a visual browser and pointer device.
This module is really a great idea for schools. It has many problems and I'm not sure if they can all be overcome. The module would probably be better if it were broken up into separate games.
General recommendation: As much as this would enhance the schools offering, I can't recommend it based on the poor code quality and lack of documentation.
