Reporting

In June I wrote a blog post on the use of Gamification to engage users more effectively. I also looked at automation and ways to keep users connected to the content and limit the drop-off. Now that we have engaged learners and the usage has increased, it only stands to reason that we should look…

Automation in Moodle

Last month I wrote a blog post about gamification and how the use of gamification plugins could be used to increase user engagement. Another way this could be achieved is through automation.

Upgrade error

Over the weekend I tried to upgrade an old Moodle site from 3.3.2 to 3.6.3. I had done an upgrade the previous day that went well, so felt a little reckless, and decided to do the upgrade in one jump. Something to note at this point – I inherited the site from someone else. The…
