Androgogic has partnered with Alfresco to bring industrial strength learning content management to the online learning sector. The development of Andresco - an enhanced Moodle-Alfresco integration - is one of the first fruits of this partnership, and Michael Fraser, Androgogic Educational Technologist, will be co-presenting a workshop exploring this integration at Moodle Moot 2012 with Barry Costin, Alfresco Sales Director - Asia-Pacific.
Alfresco is the leading commercial open-source enterprise content management platform with over 2,500 enterprise customers in 66 countries with more than 4.5 million downloads of its Community product.
Extended Alfresco-Moodle integration: Realising the potential of the Moodle Repository API
Presentation type: 25 Minute Demonstration
Most Moodle 2.x administrators will have seen the out-of-the-box Alfresco repository integration shipped with Moodle 2.x that can be accessed throughout the system once enabled.
This integration was originally written with a specific focus as a proof of concept for the 2.x repository API, and until now has lacked certain key features for effective end-user day to day use, such as:
- automated same sign on
- a range of settings to manipulate default behaviours such as whether content should be copied or linked to Moodle by default, and if linking, whether the current or always latest version should be selected, and
- the ability to seamlessly contribute content to Alfresco and link back to Moodle in a single operation of equivalent speed and simplicity as a standard in-Moodle file upload
Alfresco has utilised its partner network and the Alfresco community to extend the Alfresco-Moodle integration to perform these functions and more, as well as leveraging some of Alfresco's built in power behind the scenes in areas such as versioning, workflow and automated document type conversion.
Managers, administrators and users of Moodle 2.x installations interested in best practice Learning Content Management should come along and see why the new Alfresco-Moodle integration makes Alfresco the repository of choice for Moodle content.
