WizIQ’s Live Class web conferencing module enables Moodle users to schedule and deliver online classes using the WizIQ Virtual Classroom.

A free user account is required for Moodle administrators, on org.WizIQ.com to download the WizIQ Live Class module available as an ‘activity’ and ‘block’. ‘Activity’ features the scheduling of live classes within the Moodle course and ‘Block’ lists the live classes on the schedule. Any teacher or administrator on Moodle can schedule a live class by choosing ‘WizIQ Live Class’ from the ‘Add an activity’ drop-down list within the Moodle system.

What can teachers do in the WizIQ Live Class Moodle module?

Schedule a class
While setting up a new class, a teacher or an administrator can specify the class title, date and time, duration, language for classroom interface, its type (audio or audio and video both) and whether to record this class.

Manage classes
You can see a list of all classes with status whether they are scheduled or done. Besides, you can edit, cancel, reschedule a class and also get an attendance report once a class is over.

Manage Content

  • Create and name folders that are relevant to specific courses
  • Upload files in appropriate folders
  • Use content in your live classes from the content library rather than uploading it from your desktop every time
  • Delete folders/files when you don't need them anymore

What more can you do?

  • After a class is scheduled, a private URL is generated. This URL acts as a permalink for the class that can be shared via email, blogs, social networking sites or other websites to promote the class.
  • The class you scheduled gets listed as an event on the Moodle calendar and it is also accessible from the ‘Upcoming events’ block.
  • You may choose to record a class and make it available for download

    Does 2.3 work with Moodle 2.4 without any problems?

    Hello everyone again,

    We are currently experiencing problems with our WizIQ plugin in our Moodle 2.0. It was working fine until we updated our PHP to 5.4.19. We keep getting the following error message:
    Fatal error: Call-time pass-by-reference has been removed in /home/afslproa/public_html/moodle/mod/wiziq/session.php
    on line 124.

    Our teachers can no longer create their WizIQ classes from Moodle.

    Is there anyway there's a new plugin that works well with newer versions of PHP. The latest versions of that plugin
    is 2.5.

    The plugin was running on PHP 5.2.17 so we think the problem is related to that.

    We are having hard time on this because teachers can't use this incredible tool.

    Thanks in advance for any possible help.

    Hello Harman,

    I am researching the possibility to add/manage Wiziq Classes to a course by directly injecting the appropriate data in the database. This would enable me to create/use Wiziq more dynamically than when adding/managing classes through the Moodle course interface.

    Is this possible?

    I have looked in the database and I seem to have found the table where the Wiziq activities are stored (mdl_wiziq). However when I manually try to add a row to the table, there is a field with the name class_id which seems to be a value generated by the Wiziq server.

    Is this correct? If so, then I suspect it will not be possible to do what I want but I would very much like your expert opinion in this matter.

    Highest regards,

    Sam Stegers
