Integration of the iLinc Collaboration suite for Virtual Classrooms, Webinars and Webmeetings into Moodle.

netucate’s add-on  provides a seamless integration of the iLinc Collaboration Suite, a synchronous web conferencing tool, with the respective event types of:

  • LearnLinc (for virtual classrooms)
  • MeetingLinc (for web meetings or smaller learning groups)
  • ConferenceLinc (for large audiences)
  • SupportLinc (for  1:1 Support)

Most prominent use from Moodle is LearnLinc, the Virtual Classroom, with many features beyond classical webconferencing systems A  Moodle user will be able to manage, create and/or join such activities in a single sign-on mode directly from Moodle and need not to enter user credentials when entering the netucate activity.

The implementation follows the Moodle philosophy and logic. One or more netucate activities can be created as part of a Moodle course. Typically Course Creators or Teachers are authorized for creation and management of the netucate activities. All of the above four event types are created first as a netucate activity in a Moodle course and then specified into the respective iLinc event type. The software for all iLinc event types is the same, but the configuration templates and the discussion styles are different, adapting it to the specific tasks. All usual scheduling options are available as always open, recurring our scheduled activities. All users of a Moodle Course or a netucate activity in Moodle are automatically authorized to join the respective event.
