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.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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).

The RSS Feed The course isn't truly distributed until it has an RSS feed. We'll use the course newsletter as our RSS feed, except we'll publish the output in rss2 format instead of HTML. So, exactly as before, we'll build the RSS page in the page Editor.

My 25 Years of Ed Tech

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

1998 – Wikis Also: CMSs, RSS I didn't bother with Wikis. Instead, for me, 1998 was the year of RSS and content syndication. I did a lot of work with RSS, combining it with content management systems (CMS). Martin Weller has released his book 25 Years of Ed Tech today.

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? First I had to find it - once again, Drupal's awful search made what should have been a one-minute job a ten minute exercise in frustration. 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?

A New Website, Part Seven - Converting The Data

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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,

Introduction to Social Networking

Harold Jarche

tools are a form of social networking, but for this module we’re going to focus on “ego-centric&# social networks, those that are focused on individuals, as opposed to networks that build up around objects, such as Delicious, Flickr, Slideshare, etc. Each network offers different types of search capabilities and once you’ve located a potential friend, you must send an “invitation” to invite them into your personal network.

Distance Learning

A reader writes, I've just changed jobs and am now supporting the development of a distance learning module delivered almost entirely online. You write that your are "now supporting the development of a distance learning module delivered almost entirely online." Everywhere I look, this - and not deliveries of modules of instruction to predefined groups - is what is defining successful instruction.

My Moodle Test

I didn’t believe it myself, so I did the following Google search: “Moodle and standards.” Its 18 months old, so I did a quick search of the Moodle forums to see what the status of the SCORM export feature is today. SCORM is only one of 12 standard learning modules in Moodle. Home About Podcasts Videos Xyleme Inc.

A New Website, Part Two - Choosing Drupal

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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.

Second, it created the idea that these content modules orchunks were sharable. Third, it brings in the idea of interoperability, first inthe form of syndication formats such as RSS, which allow us to share ourcontent easily with each other, but also later in the form or applicationprogramming interfaces, which allow one computer program on one website tocommunicate with another program on another website.

Often user interaction is provided – the user might type a term into a search widget, for example – and often some form of processing is requested at the remote website. But there will continue to be an evolution of the model as developers search for the right balance between social function and individual identity, between the common software platform and individual control.
