If you a teacher who uses Moodle and the quiz activity, you might be spending quite some time in crafting hard-copy quizzes or exams. 
I am using Moodle2Word (Version 2015040201, release  3.1.4 (Build: 20150402)) on my Moodle 2.7.x site. Today's post is an update of my earlier blog post on a Moodle 1.9 version of the Moodle2Word plugin.
After three days of hard work, I have managed to a hack on the mqxml2word_pass1.xsl file. What my hack does is to change the output of the Question-Bank-exported-MsWord file.

Exploring the use of TeamSpeak with your Moodle course

I am exploring the use of voice-casting software in Moodle, specifically TeamSpeak. Why? Simply because many Digital Native users of Moodle are teenagers with experience in Gaming and TeamSpeak. So it's just another way to engage the digital native on their own turf, so to speak.

So what exactly is TeamSpeak? TeamSpeak is proprietary voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) software that allows computer users to speak on a chat channel with fellow computer users, much like a telephone conference call. A TeamSpeak user will often wear a headset with an integrated microphone. If you are interested to know more, click here for a great introduction and review of TeamSpeak.
If anyone is interested, you can try out TeamSpeak3 at my newly created free 7-Day Trial TeamSpeak3 server.
I went here to get my free 7-day-trial TeamSpeak 3 Server. If you want to rent a TeamSpeak3 server, you can also go here.
