Interactive and Grade-able Forums with Embedded Video.. (Moodle)

Forum Picture
Video Embedded Forum with Ratings

I’m pumped!

I’ve been frustrated with boring and “static” forum discussion in my moodle course and now I have found a cooler way to get good class discussion going.

In my moodle course I use a “Single simple discussion” and this makes any text I enter in the setup the first and only discussion topic for that forum. Secondly I have found that with the latest upgrade to moodle 1.9 when you copy and paste a YouTube URL the video is embedded into the post. Finally I select the “Maximum rating” option so that I can grade my students forum responses!

This means that the students can watch the video and respond at the same time (no browsing back and forward), they get to see other students answers and can also see other students ratings for their posts.

Much better and I’ve seen the difference!

Embedding Twitter Feeds Into Your Website… Feed Source

Mission Cambodia
Mission Cambodia

Hey everyone,

I’ve finally learnt how to get my twitter feeds into my web page and it was simple!

Using an online application called Feed2JS which quickly created some HTML code that I could copy and paste into my website. This means that I can embed the Mission Cambodia Twitter Feed into my web page for Mission Cambodia! This means that as things are happening on the ground we can twitter about it and the website will automatically be updated without any need for a CMS or other compicated PHP!

How cool is that…
