Assignment submissions : Online PoodLL submissions

Maintained by Picture of Justin Hunt Justin Hunt
The PoodLL Assignment Submission allows students to record audio or video, or draw/upload pictures as assignment submissions. It requires the PoodLL filter to also be installed.
Moodle 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7

Using the PoodLL Assign Submission you can use any of these 5 "recorders."
1) Video recording (via PoodLL's Red Server
2) Audio Recording (via PoodLL's Red Server
3) MP3 Recording (doesn't require Red5)
4) Whiteboard (draw pictures)
5) Snapshot (take photos with webcam)

The assignment should detect an iOS or android device and allow the student to record or upload directly from the device. In the case of a whiteboard it will display a drawing area with controls

Using the PoodLL feedback mod it is also possible to respond to the student in the same medium in which they submitted.


This plugin is part of set PoodLL.

    Hi ! Thank for this wonderful module ! My students ask me if it could be possible to add a "pause" button on your recorder ? Best regards

    Hi Pascal

    On the MP3 recorder there is a pause button. But it must be enabled in the PoodLL filter settings.
    The setting is under microphone settings, and called "Allow pause (MP3 recorder only)".

    Is that what you wanted?

    In order to finalize a assignment, my student need to record a specifiek telephone call. There aloud to do this on there smartphone, in order to upload this immediately to the e-learning environment. This plugin seems to be IT! Unfortunately this plugin doesn't seem to work via a smartphone. Does it?

    it does work on a smartphone, but it has limited functionality. It should detect the user is on a mobile device and show an upload button. When the user clicks that they have the option of recording on their phone or choosing a file. But this is the browsers native "record or choose" area. You won't be able to record a phone call here or even see the assignment page. I suppose the student could hold the recording phone close to another phone doing the call on "speaker phone" mode. That seems a bit of a stretch though.

    I cant get the Video recording to work in moodle 2.8.6 in internet explorer - It works in FireFox and in Chrome - But the users prefer IE (dont know why)
    If i record a video in ff i can see it in IE but not record in IE. the sound is recorded but the cam doesnt start at all.

    I have installed:
    assignsubmission_onlinepoodll 1.5.8
    assignfeedback_poodll 1.0.5
    filter_poodll 2.7.6

    I have set the filter to use flowplayer in default player types
    and in flowplayer settings i have set these settings :
    I have moved the filter so its the first filter in the filter list.

    Please help i cant figure what im doing wrong

    If the audio is recorded but not the video, then its a tricky situation. Sometimes a webcam can only be used on one device by one application. So if another browser was using it, or a native app like Skype, then nothing else can. I would suggest rebooting and trying again. If this is a problem on more than one machine, ie its all the internet explorers in your school, then we will need to learn a bit more about internet explorer and permissions I suspect.

    Hi Justin, some of my users are asking to use Poodl in a workshop. Do you have any plan for that ?

    I don't have a plan for that. But it could be possible. I would have to look into the workshop module a bit. So it might happen, but it probably won't happen in the next month or two.

    Hello, Is it possible to limit the max recorded file size by the "Maximum submission size" Assignment setting?

    Actually .... no. This really should be implemented though. If its an mp3 audio recording, you can achieve something by limiting the time allowed to record. But thats about it.
