I have been working on a Moodle site for one of my clients that includes a shopping cart. As the project is drawing to a close, I started wondering what one thing extra I could add to their site to give them an edge.
A while back I listened to a webinar in which the term ‘Suggested Learning’ was used, and I wondered if I could add that to the site. The idea being that if you searched for a course to buy, you could also see other courses that were related.
I tinkered around a bit with some ideas and finally settled on what I hope to be the easiest solution, namely to use the tags in Moodle.
I enabled the tags plugin, added the tags block to the courses, and tagged them. Moodle already does most of the work for us, we just need to extend it a little.
The screenshots below show the shopping site with the courses.
I was recently asked why I use Moodle as my LMS of choice. My reply was, that if you are going to build something, start with a good foundation.
To me that is Moodle.
