The Heatmap Plugin Is Now Available

We’ve been following the development of the Heatmap activity tracking block being developed by Michael de Raadt (see here and here) and we’re excited to see that it is now officially in the Moodle download repository (here).


The block has been designed to give instructors a very quick and easy way to track the activities in their courses to get a sense of what is being used (and potentially valuable) and what is not (and potentially of less value). Obviously, teachers can use this information to improve the offering in their courses.

The block also displays how many unique users have visited each activity has how many overall visits the activity receives. Michael explains it best in the demo video here:


The block works in Moodle version 2.7 and above. If you’re interested in using it in your Moodle, you can download it here:
