Working around problems getting ELTI course worksheet out of Report Express

2013/11/20 2 comments

Problem: I used to, but cannot anymore get the course worksheet for ELTI out of Report Express. My choices:

Result set is empty:

Course enrollment does not work either:

I am still in a position to get the full class list out of the system, but that is not what I need, and is not the course worksheet sheet just a calculation based on the

Solution: Use “international programs” as the “department”.

It seems “department”and “subject” drop downs synchronize only with the selection of “college”, but selection of “department” can be in conflict with selection of “subject” (Is this a good GUI?).

It also seems that this affects only  the “course worksheet", but not the “class list”(Huh?)

Another example: I seem to be able to get to the  Film studies course list only if I leave all other drop down to “all”..

How to record screencasts with Kaltura in Moodle 2

    1. Go to your video assignment in Moodle: image_thumb15.
    2. Click “Record screen”, “Add”, and pass the Java security Dialogues: image
    3. The default video resolution is  640*480, but you can change this by unfolding the drop down menu:  image
    4. Full screen is recommended for a Slideshow: image
    5. To start, click the red record button: image
    6. You will get a few seconds to collect your thoughts: image
    7. After finishing your slide show, stop the recording from the taskbar icon, and stop the recording: image.
    8. From the video  window that opens:
      1. You can preview itclip_image001[4]

        And upload it which includes encoding which takes a bit of time (but not as much as encoding of webcam footage).

        clip_image002[4]

        clip_image003

    9. Finally,
      1. you can see the result in your media library
      2. image
      3. preview it once more:

        clip_image002

      4. and submit your video content from the media library.
    10. Kaltura screencasts can be used from any Java-compatible device. In the LRC, however, you can also record screencasts to files, using MS-Community Clips which you can still upload to Kaltura – extra step, though –, while maintaining compatibility with Mahara.

  5. image

  7. On the next screen, you can review: image
  8. image
  9. Not so clear how you get out of there…
  10. Troubleshooting: If you run into problems, the first thing to try usually is a different web browser.
