The NanoGong voice recording/playback applet with integrated Moodle functionality is a very popular extension of Moodle 1, with many thousands of genuine downloads from our server to date. You may be interested to know that we have just released these packages for supporting NanoGong voice recording within Moodle 2:

  • NanoGong activity module
  • NanoGong plugin for the HTML editor (TinyMCE)

All information about NanoGong, including videos, demonstrations and downloads, is available at the NanoGong web site:

Basic use of NanoGong:

  • record/playback/pause/jump to any point in time in the recording
  • speed up/slow down the recording
  • can post the recording to a web site
  • can save the recording to your hard disk

If you don’t know about the basic things NanoGong can do you could take a look at this video:

There are two newly released features for integration with Moodle 2 which use NanoGong. Here is a brief summary of both.

The NanoGong Activity within Moodle 2

  • Students can record themselves and submit voice messages to their teachers
  • Students can (optionally) hear other recordings from students
  • Teachers can listen to and (optionally) grade students’ voice submissions
  • Teachers can (optionally) give voice/text feedback to students
  • Students can leave a message for the teacher, if needed
  • Accidentally deleted messages can be restored

Here are two videos which demonstrate the NanoGong Activity in Moodle 2.

The NanoGong Plugin for the HTML Editor within Moodle 2

Any user can create NanoGong audio content in any part of Moodle 2 which uses the TinyMCE Editor. This can be ‘mixed’ with text and anything else you can create in the TinyMCE editor, if desired. This means that you can record voice messages in anything which uses the TinyMCE editor. Here is a video which briefly illustrates three examples of using NanoGong in the HTML editor. Three examples are shown: in an assignment, in the news forum, and in a label.

More information about the Moodle 2 NanoGong Plugin is available here:

NanoGong activities can be backed up/restored using the Moodle 2 backup/restore feature.

Hope you find it useful.

  1. I just installed “The NanoGong Plugin for the HTML Editor (tinyMCE) within Moodle 2” on my local Moodle 2.3.3 dev instance, and found that it won’t work with Moodle quizzes. Why is that? Is there a hack that I can do to enable this? Thanks!
