Repositories: MEDIAL Repository Plugin for Moodle
*** This plugin has been superseded by the MEDIAL Activity and MEDIAL Assignment Activity Plugins ***
The MEDIAL repository plugin for Moodle 2.x allows a MEDIAL content repository to be searched from within Moodle. This means that streaming video and audio content hosted on the MEDIAL system (powered by Wowza Streaming Engine) can also be easily embedded with a couple of clicks without any technical knowledge.
It works in a very similar fashion to the YouTube file picker, the difference being that the content is securely hosted on your own streaming server. Since content is hosted on your own streaming server, the issues with hosting video and audio on Moodle itself are avoided and content is streamed back to the end user using the appropriate streaming technology. The Category Association Editor function within the repository plugin also allows for content exclusion from the search by pairing Moodle categories with MEDIAL content categories.
Embedded Content can be played back on PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad and Android!For an Overview of how MEDIAL works with Moodle, watch the video below:
IMPORTANT NOTE: The MEDIAL repository plugin for Moodle 2.x works with MEDIAL v2.x and onwards.
