Module 2. Personalize Moodle, general information, material

Our proposal will be based on a Pedagogical Analysis of the content and character of the e-learning experience, so that the information and resources incorporated in it are attractive, innovative and effective for the scope of learning.

The e-learning experience goes into production and within it we work on the contents, the graphic proposal and the multimedia resources that together make a dynamic and formative experience, while recovering the look and feel of your organization/brand.

Customizing Moodle themes

I am already very used to use neutral language, or at least include feminine and masculine every time I address a group, so I started to edit the language of my platform to make it more gender inclusive.

The first thing Moodle asks us is which of the installed languages we are going to customize. There in the dropdown we choose our language pack (previously installed in the corresponding section).

There we will be shown the different PHP files that contain text strings. We can select all or some of them. If we have no idea where the phrases we want to change are, we select all of them.

In the same screen, below, we find the option «Strings that contain», and there we write the word or textual phrase that we want to find to customize. For example, I wrote «Welcome».

On the right we have the column «Custom local translation», where we will write our phrase. If there is content between braces we have to write it exactly the same, because thanks to these strings with variables it will show for example the user name, the name of the course, etc.

Personalizar unidades Moodle – UNEV

A menudo la personalización puede realizarse añadiendo imágenes a una de las carpetas /mod/certificate/pix, de forma que aparezcan como opción en la página de configuración del certificado. Además, puede cambiar las cadenas de idioma que se encuentran en /mod/certificate/lang.

El código del certificado se encuentra en la carpeta /mod/certificate. Hay subcarpetas para backup, db, lang (contiene subcarpetas de idiomas), pix (contiene subcarpetas para bordes, sellos, firmas y marcas de agua) y type (contiene tipos de certificados estándar, cada uno en su propia subcarpeta).

Ejemplo creativo personalizado La forma más sencilla de personalizar su certificado es añadir sus propias imágenes JPG o PNG. Colóquelas en la carpeta mod/certificate/pix correspondiente de su sitio. La imagen JPG o PNG añadida aparecerá en la lista desplegable por su nombre de archivo.

Asegúrese de que los nuevos archivos tienen el mismo tamaño que las imágenes estándar. Por ejemplo, el archivo de firma estándar es de 150×31 píxeles. Si el archivo de firma tiene un tamaño diferente, es posible que tenga que modificar la línea de código. Lo mismo ocurrirá con los sellos, bordes y marcas de agua.Los sellos de muestra tienen un tamaño de 80×80 píxeles.

Installing, Configuring and Customizing Moodle 2.5

This article shows how to deploy a highly available, fault tolerant and scalable Moodle solution in a distributed manner. An AWS CloudFormation template is used to facilitate the deployment and configuration of the resources needed to support the solution in question.

Moodle is often implemented under a monolithic architecture model, i.e. both the database and the web and application server are installed on the same server or in the best case the database in one instance and the web server in another, which leads to challenges of availability and scalability.

One way to attack these problems is vertical scaling, i.e. increasing the capacity of resources (RAM, CPU and Storage) in the same instance. This leads to maintenance windows for scaling or migration to a server with greater resources.

The following is a solution to implement a distributed, cost-effective, self-scalable and fault-tolerant architecture for Moodle, based on the Hosting Moodle on AWS reference architecture.
