"Getting to every student in the "right order" (order of hands raised?) should be less important than getting to the ones needing the most help. Many teachers use an "ask 3 then me" approach as other students can often clarify…"
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.
"Thanks! I did discover that I can chose which items to backup. The problem is that Moodle times out and gives me an error message when I first hit the Backup button. I can never get to the screen that lets me select what file to back…"
"Thanks all. We do use embed codes and URLs to post videos from our You Tube channels. Per Craig's suggestion, I deleted any videos & podcasts that I did have posted on my Moodle page. It got me to the error message faster, but still not a…"
"Thanks Craig! I'll ask about the files. I know that I have 2 videos, but they are only a few minutes long - no where near an hour, but it's worth checking out. Our site is hosted on a dedicated server in our district (my building…"
I'm sorry to say that the problem that I was having with backup (and import) was never resolved :-(.
Our Moodle tech said that we have too much material on our sites and need to delete some of it... truly NOT a solution!
POGIL and the Modeling curriculum share some similarities, but from what I have heard, Modeling is much more intense. The HS POGIL activities are designed for one class period, but I have only had 1 activity work out that way. Most take 1.5 to 2…"
"I imagine that there will be fewer and fewer workshops. The POGIL initiative and the HS POGIL initiative were funded by grants that have or are running out. I attended my first session on POGIL at an NSTA convention. Hopefully people will still…"
"I run into the same problems with groups who don't/won't talk to each other. I constantly emphasize that they can't leave their teammates hanging, and won't answer questions from individuals until they have "consulted their…"
"I was one of many classroom testers for the High School POGIL materials. I highly recommend the POGIL lessons (the ones we tested) sold by Flinn. The workshops really help one to understand the importance of the process in helping students build…"
"Thanks Craig. I'll ask our tech guy to check on the course access logs. I'm willing to look at any possible fix. It just doesn't make sense to me that Moodle has all of these cool features and then limits the size of the course(s). We…"
The fixes didn't work :-(. I can't even get to the screen to delete old copies of the backup. The whole system times out before I can get anywhere. I'm still trying to figure out how the overall file size got so big when…"
"Thanks Joe & Craig.
I think all of my videos are hosted on other sites. I use the embed code from You Tube. There may be one that I uploaded directly, but I doubt it. I'll check that. Will also check on the course backups.
We have Moodle 2.3 and are running into a problem with backing up our courses and with the Import feature. Worked fine with v 1.9. Doesn't work with v 2.3. 3 teachers are editing teachers on each others' pages. We…"
"I have seen the same thing. Students are so used to having information spoonfed to them that they have a hard time seeking it out on their own. (information that WE know they need to know that is) We have used more and more formative assessments…"
