A New Website, Part Six - Drupal Modules

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Modules A module is some additional programming that gives your site some additional functionality. A number of optional modules come installed with the original Drupal download. In addition, you can get many more modules from the Drupal web site. The first step, then, is to look at the list of modules that comes with the Drupal download. So I select 'Site Building' -> 'Modules'. Aggregator The Aggregator is an RSS aggregator.

In the previous segment I decided to create a course with modules and sections, and set up the modules. I'll fill out the actual content of those modules over time. What I want to do is list the course modules and events (there's only one course so I don't need to list courses).

I could use a Perl Module to create the OPML file. The disadvantage is that it means installing yet another Perl module. Second, note the date command: date format=rfc822 OPML and RSS files require dates in the RFC822 format (which is a pain).

I took a few minutes to comment out the references to the Facebook OAuth module (which is now depreciated) and also to remove a 'defined' operator (which is also depreciated). There's also a way to do it by RSS. Up until now, the 'publicationDate' RSS tag has been throwaway.

A New Website, Part Eleven - Content Construction

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

First of all, how do define events: I needed to decide between the ' Calendar ' module and the 'CCK' module. How about the Calendar module? I don't understand the thinking behind the module pages in Drupal. And why doesn't the 'support forum' link to a module-specific support forum? Given that 'calendar' requires the 'views' module, but not 'CCK', I conclude that calendar data cannot be associated with the other type of data I want to create.

This is a bit tricky because my website includes both harvested content from Edu_RSS and generated content such as my articles and posts. Tricky, but not impossible, for as we have seen Drupal also has an RSS aggregator. I had always kept the two types of content - Edu_RSS links and my own content - separate, but recently I started putting all that into one big table, distinguished only by content 'type' and by the author. module, something that's firmly developed for 5.0,

A New Website, Part Nine - Mailing List Follies

Views Over the weekend I installed the Views module and experimented with it. Happily this module does exactly what I want it to do: it allows me to describe a list of records I would like displayed on a page or a block, and it then displays them for me. Using the CCK module, I have determined that I can create new data types that emulate the tables in my old system, including even the links between records that I use. I eventually found the module here.

However, Perl systems, like, say, Scoop , typically require the installation of Perl modules, which requires the cooperation of the server administrator - in other words, my hosting service. But while it's very similar to Drupal, without the development community there are not as many modules to choose from; I would have to write a lot more code myself. The Drupal modules. And for some of the special stuff I will need I can write my own Drupal module.

The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On

It will be more accurate in the future to say ‘learning resource’, since many such resources will be available that do not conform to the traditional picture of a learning object – and may be as simply as a single image, or as complex as a simulation or training module.
