Moodle 2 setup

Last night we setup Moodle and Mahara integration on tabitha.net.nz (single sign on, auto creates accounts on mahara from moodle), google docs and flickr repositories, and had a bit more of a play. We also did the update to 2.0.2 while we were in Moodle mode.

The Google docs, Picasa, Youtube and Wikimedia repositories were easy to setup, but it took a bit longer to get Flickr working (had to get the callback settings right).

To setup the Mahara integration we used instructions that we found on the Mahara wiki called Mahoodle. If you follow the instructions make sure you don't skip ahead! There were quite a lot of steps and it took a while but we got there eventually.

Playing with all of these now I am so glad we got it all setup, they are great! It is much easier to put images in if you can use the repositories. This week I am going to be showing quite a few people some of the features of Moodle 2 so this setup is "just in time".
