If you face the challenge of your users uploading large video files to Moodle on a regular basis then the MEDIAL Moodle plugin is for you!
This plugin allows Teachers / Lecturers to upload video or audio files to MEDIAL through the existing assignment activity via a button on the Atto editor
Users can upload video and audio within Moodle with the content being hosted on MEDIAL and not Moodle. MEDIAL then does all of the hard work in terms of transcoding media for different devices types. It also ensures that the transcoded content is then streamed back to any device that tries to play it back.
The plugin also features the ability for Teachers to use the tool to set Video Assignments
Students can respond to these with video and audio. The plugin is accessed via a simple button on the Atto Text Editor within Moodle so it couldn't be easier to use!
Teachers can also grade the Video Responses made by Students in the Grade Book
The plugin is built using Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) so users are able to manage their media content once uploaded as well
Also available is the MEDIAL Activity Plugin which allows Teachers to upload video and audio content from a Activity without the need to launch through the Text Editor. This plugin is better suited for users of earlier versions of Moodle
