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'. So I activate the module. This will happen for every module.

I did a bit of searching around and determined that the overall structure is pretty common: - course - modules - an array of individual units of instruction - sections - an array of individual offerings of the course Like this: Figure 1. Let's define what I want in a module.

Frustrated With Drupal

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I got to explore, for example, the Drupal Actions and Workflow modules. The search results thrown up by the site on any search are utterly useless. Try the Send Module , which in turn requires the MimeMail Module. I cannot use these modules to send anything. Forget trying to use Drupal to send emails, I'll just do that manually, and use the Drupal Mailman Manager module to allow people to subscribe and unsubscribe from mailing lists.

Content as a Service

Xyleme

With a library of granular learning assets at your fingertips, you can create content assembly applications that let your users assemble their own learning products by searching, selecting, and sequencing content into new eLearning courses, ePubs, Common Cartridges, QTI assessments, and more. This includes your eLearning modules, PDFs, movies, podcasts, articles, etc. For better or worse, the development of learning content has been a one-way push process.

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?

Drupal Documentation

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The problem is (a) that the Drupal website is very badly organized, and (b) searches for Drupal help are generally futile, and (c) help that is located is often obsolete or wrong In other words, the solution is out of our hands. Hence, a search for something specific displays a long list of meaningless chatter, rather than a help page. Boilerplate links to generic pages (something very common in the module documentation) should be avoided.

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.

What will help is that in addition to the standard modules, which I covered in the previous installment, Drupal has hundreds of additional modules. Creating new node modules allows developers to define and store additional fields in the database that are specific to your site's needs. Some more searching revealed some more discussion, including more posts from Digital Spaghetti but also some from gusaus talking about structured blogging.

Within SenseMaker™ three modules interpret the data. The greatest loss of time is delay and expectation, which depend upon the future.
