I'm sorry Camtasia and the PPT plugin aren't playing nice! Could you please submit a support ticket here so we can try to help? http://bit.ly/ts-support
We'll do our best to get you all fixed up!
We switched from 1.9 to 2.3 last summer. I'll have to ask about the repositories. That must be something that is not set up yet. Our Moodle IT guy is going to be in the district next week. I appreciate the suggestion.
Hi Robert, I take it that you are trying to host your own Moodle ... Install it on your own Mac and host from there? That would be quite an undertaking and more techie than I could ever be! In my 9 years experience ... knowing what I know I would never venture down that road ... but I am not a computer technician ... I am (was a teacher who had a masters in technology, but on the software end ... not hardware.) mostly I am just a average Moodle user.
Have you considered letting a Moodle host provider to do all the techie stuff so you can concentrate just on the course development? For instance for $395 you would get hosting of your Moodle, plus support. If you district has more than you interested your district could become a member of the Learning Consortium … which includes moodle sites for all teachers plus ongoing support. I am not trying to sell you on the Learning Curve … I just know it the best because I do most of the support services as well as training for them … but there are other Moodle hosting services out there …some are even free.
So, if you would let me know if you are hosting yourself, or already have a Moodle host I may be able to help you further, but I probably won't be much help with the installation process. BTW what Moodle version are you wanting to install and use?
I applaud you for taking the plunge … teaching and learning will never be the same …
PS I do have some grad courses 3 credits each …. And I am currently building an on-line workshop that may be helpful later.
Let me try this again as I continue in my novice approach to blogging outside my school district.
Good Morning Ann,
I've been surfing the net for two whole days looking for someone like you. I'm hoping that you can give me a bit of techno support with Moodle.
I have immersed myself this summer worth the Flipped Classroom concept and believe that from the first day of school this year my classroom lessons and teaching style will never be the same. I've used Smart Notebook to create video lessons for iPod and iPad users. It took a lot of creativity to make them the least bit interactive. After reading tons of Blogs and watching video sessions from the Flipped Classroom Conference in June, I dabbled with the thought of using Camtasia/Snagit, Quick Time and iMovie with my Mac and other presentation resources. When my principal introduced me to Moodle prior to summer session I didn't pay too much attention - looked kind of compacted and overwhelming. Once I saw how many flipped teachers used it I began my research and realized in short time that Moodle lessons appears to be the most beneficial application I kind used, supplemented by others I mentioned. I think that the biggest attraction with me and Moodle is the ability to combine text, audio, visual graphics, etc. to keep my kids absorbed in the lesson, not to mention the advantages of assessments and immediate feedback.
With that said, in response to your question, Are any of you "Flipped" teachers using Moodle . . ., it is my top priority right now but I having difficulty even getting started. I'm hoping you get help. Here is the text that I sent to me technology person:
I'm wondering if you have any experience with Moodle, and to what extent. If not, maybe you can help me make sense of the technical jargon that overwhelmed me when I tried to install it on my Mac. I did a simple install of Moodle4Mac, shown on this link:
Here is where I get stuck when I read this on the download page:
"Moodle4Mac is designed for developing and testing locally on an Apple computer. You need to make it more secure if you will open Moodle4Mac for an intranet or for the internet. Please remember this fact! For your better information you should look into the package documentation."
I did the standard install but after reading this it appears that I need the more secured version. When I did install the standard package and tried to open the program I got this message from Google Chrome and Safari when I tried to load localhost:8888/moodle23: "Google Chrome could not connect to localhost 8888 server"
I will be using Moodle to create math/science lessons to be accessed by students at home and in the classroom. Am I correct to assume that I will need to make it more secure? The "package documentation" below is where I really got overwhelmed. I'm not sure I have the tech savvy to interpret what I'm supposed to do here. Any suggestions?
