Moodle is a rich LMS. It is made richer by the wealth of third-party plugins that extend your Moodle site’s functionality. When sourcing for plugins, where does one start? The most obvious would be to go to Moodle.org’s Plugins Directory.
For those who are still using Moodle 1.9.x, I would like to recommend this French-Canadian site for a comprehensive listing of “Potentially great” Moodle 1.9 plugins.
If you’re using Moodle 2.x, then it might interest you to know that http://dev.moodlebites.com is a Moodle 2.2.3 site setup by Stuart Mealor that allows you to test many Moodle 2 plugins. Expect it to be upgraded to Moodle 2.3 soon.
See the image below? Well, I managed to create my own “Frankie Kam” self-enrolled user account and thus am able to do more than what the Guest account affords me (think forum posts and other activities).
The site allows you to try out many Moodle 2.x plugins, filters and blocks in a safe environment.
The primary purpose of this site is to have a single location that demonstrates many of the things that are possible with non-standard blocks, modules, filters and plugins in Moodle 2.
The site currently has 35 plugins, listed alphabetically. Expect more to be added as Moodle 2.x matures and develops over time.
