Blast from the Past – Website Portfolio

Do you ever remember having to present a website portfolio for a job role? As a budding web developer in 2006, this was something I had to do often to be competitive. Recently I was clearing out a few storage boxes and happened to stumble across the pages of my resume that made up my web portfolio. From memory, this was created for a State Government position (that I got the role). It’s ironic that a web portfolio had to be printed to be presented, but here we are nearly 12 years later and I’ve still got it. It’s incredibly likely that nearly all of the sites in portfolio are no longer around or have been updated to reflect new technologies (I’d sure hope so!). Below are the scanned pages, compiled with the H5P Slider Library. If you recognise any, we may just have crossed paths at some point 🙂

#H5P now has Passing Grades for Moodle

The recent release of the H5P plugin for Moodle (https://h5p.org/dec-2017-release-note) now allows for the integration of grading of H5P learning objects into Moodle. Another highly sought after feature that has been missing from the H5P plugin has been to make the ‘Passing grade’ option for H5Ps more available. We’ve taken inspiration from Moodle’s default Quiz plugin and it is now available in the latest release and should be just as easy to use:   Now course creators will be able to know when an H5P activity is completed and most importantly, when an entire course is completed.

Embed #H5P in Moodle

The recent release of the H5P plugin for Moodle (https://h5p.org/dec-2017-release-note) now allows for the embedding of H5P into HTML within an iFrame. Many people in the Moodle community have been asking for the ability to embed H5P content in different parts of Moodle and I am pleased to announce it is now possible! With the latest release of the Moodle plugin you will be able to embed H5Ps on the front page of courses and in almost any other Moodle page that accepts HTML as input. All you have to do is copy the embed code found at the bottom of the H5P container and paste it into a label. Note that you will have to press the ‘html’ button first. The screencast below shows how it’s done. We’ll be back later with an Atto plugin to make this even easier.
