The School of Engineering, Energy and Environment, have just developed an amazing tool which links a Moodle application to a Python tool which enables them to create some realistic simulations and calculations.
For further details, contact Professor Dr. Timothy Griffin.
Moodle, whilst basing its linking on the NextCloud Plugin lacks one crucial component, the dynamic linking of the two applications. This means you can pull files in to Moodle, but they will not be dynamically updated when you update the file on your local PC. The plugin developed by Münster, however, does.
After some experimenting with the test Moodle platform, I have finally made this plugin work on our Moodle instance, and here’s how to use it.
On the Hybrid-Learning Moodle platform, HT Moodle, you will find a wealth of plugins to suit practically every need and requirement within the Quiz Module.
If there is a specific quiz type that you feel you need, then please let me know and we shall see if it is compatible with the current Moodle version. A full list of Moodle quiz types can be found here: Moodle Quiz Types.
The Questions have been updated to include two new types:
Stack, which is a fairly sophisticated maths question type
Code Runner, which allows a lecturer to set a question that requires the student to answer by entering some programming code.
It may be that you are looking to do something on Moodle, but are not too sure where to start. You could, of course, ask me, and I will point you in the right direction. Alternatively, you could take a look at the Moodle YouTube Channel and you will find a wealth of information there. If you are still stuck, please do feel free to contact me.
