Filters: PoodLL Filter
Using the PoodLL filter you can add a variety of widgets to your courses. These include a stopwatch, dice, countdown timer, audio list player, flashcards, a whiteboard and simple video galleries. You can do this by hand crafting PoodLL filter strings, or by using the PoodLL Repository to add widgets via the file chooser. More information on PoodLL filter strings is available at PoodLL.com .
The other PoodLL mods, PoodLL Online Assignment(2.2) , Online PoodLL Assignment Submission type (2.3+), PoodLL Recording Question Type, the PoodLL Repository, and the PoodLL database field all require the PoodLL filter.
NB for Moodle 2.6 and earlier it is best to turn off text filter caching:
Go to: Site Administration -> Plugins -> Filters ->Common Filter Settings
There set "Text Cache Lifetime" to "no."
(This setting was removed in Moodle 2.7. Hooray)
