View Full Version : Need help sorting course categories, please
05-10-2011, 03:36 PM
There doesn't seem to be a way to sort by importance the course categories. There must be a way?
We have a certain list required and can't use alphabetical?

BTW is there any fix yet on backing up individual courses?
Is there no way to modify the code for my original question? I have the $300 encrypted license.
When is an update scheduled to be released? I'm specifically interested in logging time of students. We need to prove they completed all videos and for user convenience we are streaming our videos so its not hard for them to click through and "complete a course"
Is there any other suggestions as to how to verify attendance and completion of courses other than forcing quizzes at the end of each video? Just to make sure they watched the video?

Right now, such code modification can be done only on the paid basis. Btw, we will add this point to our suggestions list for review for the development in future versions of JoomlaLMS.
Our new version will be ready very soon, but it does not include the features you are describing. The time-tracking feature (as well as time conditions for learning paths) is still under research and will be ready in our future versions (within a year or in a half a year).
There is no possibility to control if the video file was viewed completely/fully in JoomlaLMS at all. Logging of the time spent on the page and regarding this time control – this is only a workaround, for this to work really a lot of changes in LMS and additional coding is needed (e.g. this needs to be controlled at all sides: server, browser, flash player). We have already had some thoughts about this feature and it is very likely that we will incorporate this into LMS some day.

I was just looking for suggestions. I'm recommending our team create a few questions relating to each video to make sure they have watched them. I was just wondering if anyone had any other ideas. I'm sure I could create a clocked in / clocked out button for the users when we purchase the professional version.
I'm looking for suggestions how other people have accomplished this? Does the attendance log time chunks? Could it?
Is there any way we can see a list of features that are coming in the soon to be released version?

We added several patches to JoomlaLMS 1.0.7 including the one that fixed the backup issue. Patched JoomlaLMS 1.0.7 can be downloaded on our site.
Our new JoomlaLMS 1.1 will have the following new features:
- Joomla 1.6 compatibility
- Recurrent payments for Paypal
- New modules for Joomla (showing announcements, forum posts, mails etc. from JoomlaLMS courses where user is enrolled).

thanks for the update, is there any way we could be notified when patches occur?
When downloading the current version there is no way to know there was a patch is there?
As to my original question regarding time spent on each course. I have installed community builder to get access to auto enrollment options. There might be a possibility to write some code into the community builder login rather than joomla LMS?
What do you think?

First of all please note that after JoomlaLMS 1.1 is released we will change the version number each time it is patched and a changelog will be available. Thus it will be more convenient to follow all the changes.
It is possible to create such a plugin for CB as you describe, but it will just estimate the time between user login and logout event, which is not the best solution in most cases and if you take a closer look at this issue the following things come to mind:
- User idle time – this time needs to be deducted from the amount of the time spent on the page/course.
- How to handle the ‘remember me’ login feature – time between user login/logout needs to be reduced by the time when ‘remembered’ user was ‘out of site’.
- Optimizing this feature to estimate the time spent in courses – in any case requires JoomlaLMS source modifications.

I was just brainstorming, I wasn't trying to imply it would be easy or as accurate as a full lms feature in the future will be. Due to our site being heavy in streamed video we are very interested in this feature.
I'm also glad to hear patches will be tracked going forward.
Thanks for your help.
