Jen Clevette (@jenclevette) created a great video highlighting the Collapsed Topics course format (below) and I just had to give it a try. It installed no problem (which is saying a lot since my server-side skills are pretty non-existent) and was available without even running notifications on my Moodle.
Once installed this is what you can expect (thanks to Jen’s great overview; download and installation information is available below the video),
(note that these are for 1.9, found in the Readme.txt file included with the installation files):
- Copy ‘topcoll’ to /course/format/.
- If using a Unix based system, chmod 755 on config.php – I have not tested this but have been told that it needs to be done. [I did not have to do this for my site which is hosted by Bluehost.com]
- If desired, edit the colours of the topics_collapsed.css – which contains instructions on how to have per theme colors.
- To change the arrow graphic you need to replace arrow_up.png and arrow_down.png. Reuse the graphics if you want. Created in Paint.Net.
