TaskChain activity module for Moodle 2.x
Moodle 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7

Introduction

  • The TaskChain module allows several elearning "tasks" to be connected together into a "chain" which forms a single Moodle activity. The activity is accessed by clicking on a link on a Moodle course page.
  • The TaskChain module is the successor to the QuizPort module for Moodle 1.x and the HotPot module for Moodle 2.x.
  • The download on this page is compatible with any version of Moodle 2.x.

Features

  • a single TaskChain activity can contain more than one task, so there is less clutter on the Moodle course page and in the Moodle grade book
  • pre-conditions can be added to any task to prevent access until the conditions are met
  • post-conditions can be added to any task to specify what happens after a task is finished
  • a square bracket notation allows links, images, sounds and movies to be easliy inserted into quizzes without the need for the teacher to input HTML code
  • output formats for each task can be selected in Moodle, e.g. a JCloze quiz has the following output formats: standard, DropDown, FindIT and JGloss (by Michael Rottmeier), ANCT-Scan (by John Herbert)

    Hi Gordon,
    I began translating in AMOS the TaskChain English strings into spanish for Mexico and I noticed a strange-looking English string, which I think is a typo:

    2.4 [anyattempts,taskchain] "Any attenpts"

    "attenpts" should be "attempts" (I think).

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Valero,
    thanks for translating the TaskChain string into Spanish for Mexico !

    Please change all occurrences of "attenpts" to "attempts". I will change the original.

    best regards
    Gordon

    Hi Gordon,
    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    I just saw another possible typo:
    2.4 [configlockframe,taskchain] "If this setting is enabled, then the navagation frame, if used, will be locked so that it is not scrollable, not resizeable and has no border"

    "navagation" should be "navigation" (I think).

    I will continue the translation and I will report to you whenever I think I have found a typo, so that it can be fixed.

    Thanks again.

    Howdy Gordon,
    1. Where's the best place for us to provide feedback as we work with TaskChain?
    2. Is there a way to get the scores of individual tasks from within a taskchain? Right now of course we can get the score of the entire "Unit" as a whole, but I'm hoping to get scores from the tasks that make up a chain.
    Thanks,
    Paul Kaiser

    Hi everyone,
    if you wish to ask questions, make suggestions, or report an issue about the TaskChain module, the best places to do so is either on the Moodle Tracker or on the Moodle HotPot forum. You will get faster and better response that way.

    * Moodle Tracker (Contrib): http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/CONTRIB
    * Moodle HotPot forum: http://moodle.org/mod/forum/view.php?id=1599

    best regards
    Gordon

    Gordon - German filed CONTRIB-4687 requesting that we provide a documentation URL. I see here that you mentioned using Moodle Tracker for issues; however, there is currently no component for the taskchain activity module. Would you rather use Github's issues - https://github.com/gbateson/moodle-mod_taskchain/issues - or would you prefer that I create a component in the tracker and make you the lead so that you can manage those issues and they will be automatically assigned to you. If you have any questions or need any help setting things up just let me know. Peace - Anthony
