Relax, no red PVC all-in-one required for this Moodle tip.
Introducing Auto enrolment
The Auto enrolment is a great plugin which allows you to enrol users based on actions that they make within Moodle, such as logging in, viewing a course or viewing an activity/resource.
If you have content that you would like to be available on your Moodle or Totara LMS site without the user needing to be enrolled in a course or logged in, you can add the content to the main menu block.
The two text editors most commonly used within Moodle and Totara LMS are Atto and Tiny MCE.
If you would like to enable the use of the Moodle mobile application for your Moodle site you can do so, providing your Moodle site is on version 2.4 or above, although some Moodle mobile features will not be available in earlier versions of Moodle.
Introducing the Checklist module
The checklist module plugin allows students and teachers to track progress through a course within Moodle. The checklist displays progress using a progress bar that fills up as users check off items on their checklist.
Introducing Learner Data Reports
Learner Data Reports is a reporting plugin developed by HowToMoodle. The plugin allows you to quickly generate reports based on user profiles, marks, courses and activity information and completion status.
If you would like to include social media links to your Moodle or Totara LMS site in a stylish way and without adapting the theme, 'Font Awesome' is a easy and simple solution. This method also offers the ability to customise the size and colour of the icons to suit the branding of the site.
