Activities: MooTyper

Maintained by Picture of AL Rachels AL Rachels
MooTyper implements the typing instructor functionallity into Moodle.

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.

    I am using Moodle 2.5.5

    I install Mootyper on my moodle after editing version.php.

    I change this in version.php:


    $module->requires = 2012062500; // Requires this Moodle version


    $module->requires = 2013051405; // Requires this Moodle version

    Mootyper installed and working fine untill I found this:

    When I clicked "To manage exercises and categories click here" there is list of lessons but there is no check box displayed to select them sad
    I am not a PHP hardcoder so please help me in this issue...

    Hello. This is an excellent plug-in and it works smoothly, until 20 students, and then run into resource problems with the server. Do you have any suggestions on server requirements or server optimizations for using mootyper with larger classes. I would like to scale this up to about 100 students total.

    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:
    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.
