Welcome the my third post in a series of five posts featuring the Edwiser Bridge and its four extensions. Today I will focus on the Edwiser Selective Synchronization Extension, which is a commercial plugin.

This plugin works in tandem with the other extensions to achieve a Moodle-WordPress synergy.

the Selective Course Synchronizatin extension fits in.

Why is this plugin useful? Imagine a Moodle site with hundreds of courses. With the Edwiser Bridge alone, you would import ALL courses into WordPress. That could be a lot of courses being synchronised, leaving you with no choice but to let the Bridge do everything for you.  You might then end up having to delete the WordPress courses which you don't need. Wouldn't it be far more convenient to be able to choose the courses to be synchronised? You can with this plugin by Edwiser.
