Drupal or Moodle for platform with repositories plus learning tools? Experiences and advice asked.

Doubting between Drupal and Moodle - Experiences/advice asked. We received a grant to develop an open learning platform on anatomy, that will contain both repositories for anatomical data and learning functionality using these data. The anatomical data comprises images, separate terms, coordinates, folders with Google-maps-like image tiles, video, 3D data, etc., all to be multi-tagged. The learning functionalities are for instance quizzes, flash cards, 'drawing on image'-assignments, peer-review, ranking, competition, serious games, etc.

How to fetch Views total number of records in page.tpl.php before views.tpl called.

See this image http://prntscr.com/7idx70 for more understanding.

I want to fetch Views total number of records in page.tpl.php before views.tpl called. Is it possible to fetch that row total before views rendered? I am also using contextual filter for this view. Views have page type display.

I have also used module https://www.drupal.org/project/views_record_count. but this will print total number of records on Views header or footer. (Not outside of views)

xAPI module for learning analytics

At iMindsX we have been working on integrating Drupal with Learning Locker for a while now. We created a custom distribution for blended learning, and detailed analytics are very important. Last month, we made the set of integration modules that allows sending xAPI statements to Scorm Cloud and Learning Locker (developed by Matthias van Parijs, Nikos Verschore and Devan Chase) for various actions performed on the blended learning site. The coolest features are video player interaction for Youtube and Vimeo and Quiz integration.

Monthly Hangout Higher Ed groups interested in Hosting Our Own Drupal (HOOD)

The Higher Ed Summit at DrupalCon was a great opportunity for a few members of our team from CU Boulder to talk with other schools who also host their own Drupal infrastructure. The hosting needs of universities and colleges are often very similar... but like our end users, we tend to think our Drupal distribution and configuration is a special snowflake. I've learned a lot listening and sharing hosting war stories with other higher ed Drupalers this week.

ELMSLN + xAPI/Learning Locker + H5P + OpenBadges

Rick Humphries (@rickhumphries) recently did a video showing the work his group is doing with ELMS Learning Network, Learning Locker and H5P to transmit activity statements (XAPI) from ELMSLN to Learning Locker. Then it shows how ELMSLN is querying the LRS (learning locker) for what statements a user has passed and then granting badges based on matching those statements.
