How to become a plugin developer
Marcus Green – Titus Learning
Even if you are an experienced programmer, becoming a Moodle developer can be daunting. I will talk about what tools are required, how it differs from other development and where to get support. Most importantly I will talk about the fortune that can result in producing a popular plugin.
Gary Mahon – Enovation
The Learn2Analyze (L2A) Consortium seeks to enhance existing competency frameworks to include Educational Data Literacy for Instructional Designers and eTutors. One of the outcomes of this EU funded project is the L2A MOOC which combines theory around collecting, analysing and interpreting this Educational data while also showing how this is achieved in practice using LMS platforms, specifically Moodle.
Mitxel Moriana – 3iPunt Solucions Informàtiques
Introducing the development difficulties and performance-wise advantages of turning the existing Moodle Web app into an Angular Progressive Web App: functional demo, performance measurements and pluginization example.
Thomas Korner – ETH Zürich, Clive Young – UCL London
The leading research universities ETH Zürich and University College London (UCL) present their approach to development of digitally rich blended and fully online learning on Moodle (incl. UCL’s rapid development approach, ABC). The contrasting approaches will be discussed with examples.
Internship Journal Management: Purpose, Development, and Results
Don Hinkelman – Sapporo Gakuin University
Internships and experiential learning programs require ongoing interaction between multiple stakeholders–students, work supervisors, and instructors. The Internship Journal is a custom-designed version of the Database Module, which tracks student writing, notifies supervisors of progress, requires multiple approvals, and provides text analysis for reports.
How to Install a “Personal” Moodle on Your PC or Mac
Rick Jerz – The University of Iowa
This presentation will show you how to install a sandbox Moodle, describe the major installation components, and touch upon plugins, Moodle settings, and CSS.
High Stake Exams with Moodle: BYOD using Safe Exam Browser

Interactive applets in Moodle using JSXGraph
Igor Pesek – University of Maribor
Pau Plana i Salesas – 3&Punt Solucions Informàtiques SL
Moodle is designed to provide equal functionality and information to everybody. There should be no barriers for people regardless of disabilities, assistive technologies, different screen sizes and different input devices. Some Moodlers don’t know about accessibility. Is important to explain how you can contribute to the accessibility of Moodle.
Studies on the subject are unanimous: to learn, you have to be attentive, however, students’ attention in class drops drastically after 10 to 20 minutes. Discover the Moodle plugin that boosts class interactivity and helps teachers measure their students’ understanding in real-time thanks to smartphones.
Dr. Urmila Pol – Shivaji University Kolhapur Maharashtra
Interactive content allows users to leverage the power of the web and modern computer processing to engage the students. This presentation is an effort to integrate H5P with Moodle, design of interactive course content for computer science with H5P plugin and monitor the engagement of students.
Even as video has become perhaps the most important method for delivering learning content, many of its potential applications have yet to be fully realized. Much of the potential of video for teaching and learning resides in its ability to deeply engage learners in ways that text cannot. To do this, we need to create a “lean forward” learning experience that asks more, and does more, for our learners. Among the topics we’ll discuss are such engagement tools as
Interactive video paths
Video quizzes, questions and hotspots
Davina Beegoo-Price – The Open University
The OU has launched their Branded Moodle Mobile app (OU Study) to 25 early adopter modules. Hear how the students have reacted to having a new app to support their studies and find out more about what the future plans are for the app.
New Plugin Availability Condition IP
Andreas Hruska – eDaktik GmbH
The new Moodle Availability IP plugin provides the functionality to limit access to all Moodle resources and activities by IP address ranges.
Embedding questions anywhere
Tim Hunt – The Open University
Moodle question types let you build little nuggets of interactive learning for your students. If you thought they could only be used within the confines of quizzes, you are missing a trick. Let us show you how you can embed questions anywhere.
Moodlefying assessments in medical education and the problems of scale
Heikki Wilenius – University of Helsinki
A presentation describing the experiences from University of Helsinki on moving to e-assessments in medical education using Moodle, Safe Exam Browser and a BYOD policy.

When 1+1 sometimes has to make 3, what optimization processes can we put in place to provide quality MOODLE support?
Jean-François Van de Poel – Université de Lausanne
Maintaining a quality of support and a functional platform is a daily challenge for many MOODLE support services to teachers and students. Through this communication, we wish to share our 15-years experience with colleagues facing similar challenges and share the decision algorithms we have developed over the past few years.
Get to know the Digital Cheating Squad which from time to time comes and ‘rescues’ tens of thousands of students from unwanted work.
Meet Copypaster who can unnoticeably incorporate pictures instead of text into student’s work; Microspacer whose power is to add numerous numbers of invisible characters; and Character replacer who professionally changes Latin characters in words with similar characters from other languages thus making the text untraceable for some checkers.
We will learn how to use new Unicheck feature called Modifind. Its goal is to spot students who modified the text to reduce similarity score and not to punish them, but to start a life-changing conversation.
Gerente de Desarrollo de Unicheck
Renaat Debleu – eWallah
Measuring your source code when running test suites is not only an incentive to write better and more tests, but it can also used for debugging. It is gamification of your testing work: every change in your source code can produce a better score.
Na Li – Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University
This presentation will showcase how Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University – a large, Sino-international university located in Suzhou, China – makes use of Moodle (and the Attendance plugin in particular) to facilitate the recording and tracking of in-class attendance by 15,000+ students across thousands of teaching sessions every week.
Interactive learning in the 21st century – a toolbox in the Moodle universe
