MooTyper is an Activity module. A course admin, manager, or teacher creates the activity and prepares it for use.  Students can then start to type the current exercise. When a student finishes an exercise his achievement is saved into a database, so the teacher can then view grades.

For any additional information please visit us on GitHub or post in MooTyper's forum topic.

    It is fantastic this module ... very good! Thanks or service, job! is perfect!
    I'm using Moodle 2.8 and it works, but I'm having trouble putting the letter ç
    Please, I would love to have the keyboard in Portuguese, because it could be used in Portugal and in Brazil.
    You would enter this keyboard? I ask this because I could not in any way put to work the character ç
    Here in Brazil we have the letter ç on the keyboard
    Look this image: http://prntscr.com/5dmm7q
    Thank you for your help

    I know it has been a while since a new version of this module has been released. One is in the works and we hope to have it ready in another day or two.

    Great to hear. We are planning to use this activity so looking forward to the updated version. I'm using Moodle 2.9.4 but planning to move to 3.1 in May. Hoping it works for both. Thanks for your awesome work!

    David, I thought I might have higher versions ready by now but I'm so new at programming php it is taking me a little longer than I'd hoped. I've been hung up for two days tracking down a permission error that goes back way before I took over, but I just figured it out a few minutes ago. I will need to do some more testing just to make sure, but hopefully will do a 2.7.1 release by Monday, Then I'll jump forward to 2.8 and 2.9. I really want to get to 3.0 before Moodle 3.1 gets released this spring.

    I've been doing a lot of work on MooTyper, most of which doesn't really show up as it mostly has to do with needed modifications to the code for such things as logging events. For the past couple of days I've worked on a new keyboard layout, English(US), which you can see as a new screen shot near the top of this page. If you would like to try it out let me know. Also, if you use one of the other keyboard layouts and would like it updated similar to this one, let me know and I'll see about getting it done, too.

    Actually Jaka, it's not too bad. It has mostly just been adding in things required by Moodle changing how things works, such as events for logging, and fixing deprecated ways things used to be done.

    Just added a new MooTyper 3.1 version that works with Moodle 2.9, 3.0, and 3.1 as well as PHP 7. If you do an update from a previous version, in the admin block for MooTyper you will see some new capabilities. If you click on Import exercise/category, you will see at least one new lesson added to those available for use when setting up a new MooTyper activity. If you have created your own lessons, there is also a link, Export/edit exercises, that takes you to the edit page where you can select lessons to download so you can save them or swap them with other MooTyper users.

    I've also included some new keyboard layouts. If doing a new install they will automatically be available for use when setting up a new MooTyper activity. If you already use MooTyper there are two ways to get access to the new layouts. One is to uninstall MooTyper then reinstall it to get the new layouts to show up. Two, after updating MooTyper, manually add the new layout you want to use in the database table, mdl_mootyper_layouts. Just duplicate the last record, then edit the filepath, name, and jspath so it contains the name of the new layout.

    NOTE: Currently, my testing of the new keyboard layouts is very limited and done by switching to different languages on my desktop computer using WIndows 10 and my regular keyboard. If you notice any problems be sure and let me know about it and I'll see what I can do to fix it.

    Quang Viet Nguyen, dude, what do you think you are doing?! This is not how plugin versions should be released. Plese read the official development documentation: https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Main_Page
