We just got our brand new Samsung Galaxy Gears
. So far they look very impressive.
Lets see what we can do with them in our Mobile Device Development based courses.
Maybe we port our studentsLife App,… who knows…… 🙂
Today we finished our first milestone in our MedIT Moodle Adobe Connect
The first milestone includes:
- Creating ADC meetings as activities within a Moodle course.
- Auto enroll course members
- Single Sign-on for lecturers/students with their corresponding rights.
- Automatically generated reminders for pending ADC course activities.
- Viewing ADC sessions is also possible with our mobile application studentsLife (iOS/Android) and the adobe-connectmobile integration.
I’ve converted the PlantUML tinymce plugin
to work with tinymce used in Moodle 2.4.x.
Feel free to test it -> download
I’ve just migrated the Autocomplete-User plugin to work with the globale jQuery version (ui.autocomplete widget) used in the latest Trac versions.
Feel free to test it -> download
I have just finished with the syntax-highlighting plugin for Moodle 2.4. The plugin is based on the rjinsertcode
plugin for tinymce
done by Ryan Juckett.
Feel free to test it -> download updated (12.03.2013)
Over X-Mas holidays I moved our Medit-ePortal Moodle
to the latest and greatest 2.4
. Let’s check out the new goodies 🙂
Some impressions of our last trip to Brussels and the Medica
fair situated in Dusseldorf, Germany.
Every year Mr. Hoffland and his current semester are visiting the Medica, one of the world’s largest medical trade fair.
It is now almost two years since I started my blog. 2 Years with more than 100.000
Thank you all for visiting,….. 🙂
In one of my last posts I wrote about a young company Rarebyte
. The folks from Rarebyte a
re mainly focused in game development but they also have a great experience in building highly scalable middleware applications for sport timing respectively sport events.
They are named their product line Rankz.
Rankz is desigend for small to very large sports events with thousands of athletes. Its purpose is to get detailed information about every aspect of a sport event in real time. It has already been successfully used at the
Rankz is also the central core layer in a student project called “IRONNET” (FH-Sportstiming) done by students from Network Engineering & Communication (NET) and is also the overall software basis used by “FH Sportstiming” (NET). An older version is also operated by Triangle Show & Sports Promotion Gmb.
The middleware uses spring core layer technologies which allows them to be highlight flexible. The data structures which specify the sport event can be entirely configured through XML. A full featured editor for XML/POJO is also available. The interface to the timing database can also be configured through XML. For this reason you are neither limited by the used format of the timing data nor to the database engine. Rankz works out of the box with MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, MSSql.
Furthermore Rankz uses a dynamic plugin system. So new features can be added very easily. Plugins can be loaded and unloaded @ runtime.
- Superfast – detailed results nearly live during a race
- Support for plugins (input, output, calculations)
- Platform independent (completely written in Java)
- Integrated webserver (Jetty)
- Overall ranking
- Ranking per split
- Ranking in athlete’s age group
- Relative ranking at certain splits
- Timing, average Speed, finishing context,….
- statistic system and missed time error correction system
- FTP plugin upload
- Athlete’s (geographical) real time position prediction.
- SMS/MMS Notification Service
- Athlete’s@Twitter …
- Virtual Athlete’s rankings (audience favorite….)
- Position estimation
- RESTful resource connectors
- Webservice Revision Layer
- Distributed mode for sport events like wingsforlife
- Query engine
- RESTful interface
- Web output for all plugins
- CSV exports for all plugins
- Android/iPhone (iOS) applications for live data/timing visualization (special version for Event Moderator/sport commentators).
I just added the wonderful ajax marking block
to our Moodle
system. After little testing it seems that this block has some issues with our PostgreSQL
In detail one of the major queries are aborting with the meaningful error message:
ERROR: failed to find conversion function from “unknown” to text
nice stuff 🙂
It turns out that the usage of a “string as alias” are not handled correctly in postgresql, or so,… this part needs an explicit cast “::text”
If you also encountered this problem, you can download an updated query_base.class.php from -> here
This is a short video from one of our recently finished projects called FlexCell
