If you’re a user of the Grid Format maintained by Gareth Barnard the newest release is available for Moodle 2.9 for testing and QA only, not for production.

Post Pages - Post Inline - WIRIS

If you’re not familiar with it, this novel format provides users a different view of a Moodle course by providing a matrix of images (in a grid) which represent each of the course’s topic areas. Clicking on each will open it within the same window as a modal (no page refresh required).

The “release candidate” available to test is available from this link https://moodle.org/plugins/pluginversion.php?id=8532

Non-release candidate for Moodle sites not running 2.9 are available here: https://moodle.org/plugins/view/format_grid

A handy demonstration video for the course format is embedded below [direct video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ducd-c-CwO0]

  1. Thanks Joseph 🙂

    This version is a ‘release candidate’ so not quite stable yet. Just noticed this morning that I need to add a tad more code for the new ‘delete section’ functionality in core.
