A moodle module for learning foreign languages

Moodle 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 2.8

This activity module allows the creation of exercises for learning foreign languages. An exercise is mainly composed of 2 files: a video file and a subtitles file. The subtitles file use either the .srt or .vtt syntax. In this file, text between square/curly brackets have to be guessed by the student (curly brackets will propose an help button to the student).

For testing: install the module and use video files here http://framatube.org/media/presentation-des-licences-creative-commons-avec-cc (mp4 for Safari and webm for google chrome) (See http://creativecommons.org/videos/creative-commons-kiwi for attributions) and this file http://download.chdemko.com/moodle/mod_elang/Creative_Commons_Kiwi-guess.fr.srt for the subtitles.

Unfortunately, only google chrome and safari browsers support the HTML5 features used in this module

A demo site is available here.

    Hi Christophe,
    Thanks for sharing this smile
    I was able to install this with no problems, when it came to trying to use it i was stumped. I think this needs some documentation. (The activity chooser in 2.5 also allows for some description)
    Do consider adding some description here as well or even any video links.

    Hi Christophe, the plugin installed on 2.5 without problems. A short description on the basic idea would already be helpful.

    Is it not possible to link to online videos? Also, is there no demonstration of what the activity looks like in practice?

    @Christophe Demko
    I tried to install on a 2.6 platform, and it's ok. But when I try to add an activity, one problem that stopped me is the dropdown list of language is blank then I couldn't go on to add the activity.

    A new version rc1-1.0.0 has been published (compatible moodle-2.3 to moodle-2.8). It's a release candidate. Version 1.0.0 stable should be published soon.

    There was a small error in rc1-1.0.0. rc2-1.0.0 solves this issue.
