Plugin Competency Moodle-Mahara

08 October 2019, 8:51 PM

To date, unless I am mistaken, there is no division of powers between
the two platforms, the plugins found are Moodle_Assigment_Mahara which
deals with portfolio ratings to an integrated teacher
Moodle or the IENA plugin on Moodle's links to Mahara, for a group of students and
its professors are established on the 2 platforms (accounts + homework and
activities on Mahara and Moodle: Reference to IENA plugins created by
Softia company for the University of Lorraine).

Thus, the values ​​conveyed by the University of Reims would be to create
a skill sharing of students publish in Moodle push towards the
Mahara platform, and that it be integrated with Mahara's SmartEvidence.

At this moment, the University of Reims is planning a plugin work
allowing this sharing of skills between the two platforms allowing
Moodle pushed the data to Mahara and present them on
the SmartEvidence of Mahara.
The position of the University of Reims therefore
ensure the passage of competence between the two platforms.

For all the requests mentioned, do you have any advice, ideas or inspiration to carry out this project ?

Hi Antoine,

At Catalyst we started a project to enable the transfer of competencies from Totara to Mahara using web services. This project is still in progress. You can find the changes to where we have gotten for the Mahara side linked on the wishlist item. You are welcome to take a look at them and see how they can help your case to connect to Moodle competencies.

In our scenario, we are going to set up competencies in Totara and then push them to Mahara for creation of a SmartEvidence framework. In the wider picture, the functionality will allow us to align individual artefacts to a SmartEvidence competency.
