Access to Ariadne from within Moodle

Below is a set of slides that Sten presented last week to our friends in Africa on the bridge that we have developed between Ariadne and Moodle.

Basically, the bridge allows Moodle users to search for Ariadne (and thus GLOBE) content from within their Moodle course. This is significant IMHO because it enables us:

  • to provide this functionality in the normal workflow of Moodle users – they do not need to go to a different site and download locally the relevant documents, only to upload them again into their Moodle course;
  • to use information about the context of the user to enhance the searches or even to suggest proactively resources that may be relevant – this is an area that we will actively pursue in the near future.

For now, I hope that the Moodle bridge will enable a new community of users to have convenient access to our resources… Maybe you want to try it out?
