LMS (learning management system)

This group should probably have more organizers. See documentation on this recommendation.

Everyone interested in using drupal to power learning management systems (LMS) is welcome to participate. Particularly if you or your company has already built a LMS in drupal or some piece of functionality that could be used for course management or something like that.

This group is an outgrowth of one of the BOF's at drupalcon SF.

XAPI formula to turn any drupal site into an LMS

Just wanted to point to a pretty killer combo right now that's emerged and works really well that would let you basically turn any drupal (7) site into an LMS.

https://www.drupal.org/project/tincanapi -- works really well, has some built in tracking stuff and plugs into...
drupal.org/project/quiz -- So you can capture the state of things in an LRS; Quiz 5.x beta is awesome btw
and also..
https://www.drupal.org/project/h5p_tincan_bridge + https://www.drupal.org/project/h5p so you can get XAPI statements emitted from H5P files to flow via Drupal to an LRS.

Tool Builder - Liberating Innovation via site building

https://www.elmsln.org/blog/post/tool-builder video showing new functionality built into elms that allows for effectively allowing anyone that can site build to submit their idea to our innovations github repo without needing to understand code or version control. This is one of the more ridiculous goals of the project.

We have armies of faculty, instructional designers and site builders throughout the education space. We're seeking to unlock the ability for everyone, without knowledge of code or version control, to be able to contribute their creations.

A11y toolkit module

Just wanted to blast it here as well that I made an accessibility toolkit module which provides a block to help provide ways of improving your site for different visual impairments; most resolving around dyslexia (like a font that makes it easier to read). We also store the setting in a cookie and in the future will do this on the serverside so it doesn't have to reload each time (as the screencast currently shows).

Support, feedback and improvement suggestions always welcome: https://drupal.psu.edu/blog/post/a11y-accessibility-toolkit-module

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.

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.

Results from tests and other H5P interactivities are now stored in both Drupal and Wordpress. This means that H5P may be used for homework and other use-cases where activities and results needs to be tracked. H5P stores when a user starts the activity, when he finishes, how many points he got of how many possible points.

It is possible to list all results for a specific H5P:

It's now easier to administer H5P libraries!

We've had some feedback from community members who want more control of what happens behind the scenes in H5P, and we've now launched the H5P library administration feature

In earlier versions of H5P, the ability to administer installed H5P libraries were limited. In the newly published H5P module, the H5P library administration has gotten a lot better. Here we give you an overview of what the H5P library administration is all about.
