poodll functionality in Mahara
20 January 2016, 10:14 AM
I was wondering if anyone have been able to have poodll integrated in Mahara somehow.
I tried to see if there was other option to be able to record audio/video within tinymce and poodll seems to be the only options. But I am unable to find out if it can be added to Mahara itself.
Any ideas on how such functionality could be integrated?

I'm not aware of that functionality working in Mahara. Audio / video recordings would certainly be a great addition.

Sorry I completly forgot to give an update, this is what he said:
Its certainly possible, but it would be a project that would require some development time. So we would need to work out funding for it. Do you think your institution would be prepared to fund such a project?
To be honest I just do not have much experience with Mahara so its a wee bit tricky to say.

Hello Dirk and Eric,
We are going to investigate the recording of audio (potentially video) very shortly. Ideally, it would be HTML5 based so it can also be done on mobile devices and doesn't require Flash which is being phased out by browsers in general. We'll keep you posted when we know more.

It sounds good to me, I do not have any preference except for ease of use. Let me know if I can help.

I kept communication with the poodll developper and pointed him to your results and his comment was:
"Whoever did that nailed it pretty well."

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Thanks for sharing our idea with the PoodLL developer and sharing his feedback. It's always good to know what others think. We'll take this topic up again after the 16.04 release.
