Moodling Still :P

July 27, 2022


Also GIMPing and oh!!!! There is a way to tell it to fill similar colors, and to “fill by line art detection,” whatever that is!! I’ve figured out how to put a whole table with 25 different answers on a question, so the whole addition facts table is 4 questions long. (Decided 100 was just […]

Got a detailed response with some JQuery ideas to improve the display on my “drag drop moodle questions.” More importantly, I have a better idea how the drop zones work. I still don’t know if/how I can ask “name a number greater than 9” as an arithmetic or “calculate” question. And, bigger question, don’t *really* […]

…. welp, I *would* be at the faculty summer institute but I didn’t get a proposal in and … honestly didn’t see any presentations that spoke to me. After all, …. I’m not faculty 😛 When I go out on the bike I remember things to do. At my desk? It’s not there. Well, except […]

Almost goin’ back…

This week hasn’t been a total “sat in front of the screens all day” week but it is a pretty insidious draw. Twice I successfully used Pomodoro to tell me when I had to GET UP 😛 Four other times I Just Got Up… YES, I’ve been keeping score. The Learning Commons meeting Tuesday wasn’t […]

Excited :-)

Okay, I *am* an optimist. I’m easily infatuated with potential. I had about a 15 minute zoom call with “UDLPartners.” They’ve got a “Name it, Frame it, Tame it” video and the plan is to have “micro PD” videos — under 3 minutes. (Yes, we already speak the same language.) So now it’s time to […]

Rabbit, Rabbit!

  It’s the first of the month, and #mtbos encourages us to blog and share. Our state and local COVID cases are still awful at almost 1700 *today* for the state. A tweet linked to a twitter account of a professor who got the thing in April and her dying plea last week was for […]

Still here!

  Friday, April 24 and we’ll be in “stay home” status through the end of May.   Since the college had already made the decision that at least summer will be online, it’s not a big change for me; I’m supposed to have a mask on starting May 1.   Masks are so prevalent that I already […]

So I’m working away at this thing and reading tweets and this article about OpenStax and how it is now doind COURSEWARE not just textbooks. Of course, so is … bccampus 🙂 Little old me can’t do anything compared to that… but will there be a way for my little old stuff to be useful […]

False start…

September 22, 2019


OER was a frequent topic of discussion at our tech summit Friday. There are still people who don’t know about it — bringing to mind my analogy of OER to bicycles. People who are in car culture have trouble wrapping their minds around the notion of doing something … that isn’t pre-packaged and ready to […]

Fall Starts :)

September 21, 2019


Not to be confused with False Starts, tho’ heaven knows they seem to be frequent. Things learned from summit: lots of people are curious about GIMP. I approached it from “This is how I make sure the content in my OER is *mine*” which seemed to matter based on the nods and comments. The 12-minute-takeaway […]
