During the christmas holidays I took the chance to update our main moodle server (medit-ePortal) to the latest version 2.2.1 Let’s see what the new advanced grading methods can do for us 🙂
Happy new year!
Since several months three of my colleagues (Johannes L. , and Dominik R. ) and me have put together our new Campus Information System. We use a customized version of Xibo
linked together with our internal process management system aCTIons
to get various information about room assignments and upcoming events for students on our information screens. In addition we also have some campus news channels, special event information pages etc.
The whole System can be configured trough a central server web interface. Every Infoscreen can be independently configured which and when some information should be shown.
We recently encountered some IE9 incompatibility issues with our latest Moodle 2.1+ installation. It turns out that the used version of the graphical back-end Yui
seems do have some problems with IE9 ,…. or the other way round :-).
There are couple of bug request in the moodle bug tracking system, but for 2.1+ there is unfortunately no commit in master which fixes this issue.
So if you do not want to wait for an official release take a look at -> link. Follow the walkthrough how to update Yui an this should fix the IE9 problems.
For the last weeks Martin has been finishing our first H-Frame based Quadrocopter.
After some PID parameter tuning we got a very smooth flying Quadro. But see for your self,….
Thx to Amir and the whole NG-UAVP Team
The past days we did some recruiting for our new image processing project…. In the end only one survived Markus selection procedures of hell.
So let’s say hello to Fred.
Fred responsibilities will be:
- check that we meet our 33fps goal
- exactly maintaining up to 6 coffee breaks per day
- check the results of our gain/gamma correction algorithm
- check the circle ROI (photo) for disharmonies
- and last but not least motivate our lead programmer Markus
It’s been almost a year since we started with our Quadrocopter workshop. Now the first quadros reached the “read for test flight
Martin just send me some pictures from his mostly finished NG-UAVP based quadrocopter.
As you can see he decided to build a H frame. Let’s see how it performs under flight conditions 🙂
The last Saturday our youngsters had their big day :-).
The higher secondary technical school (HTBL Lastenstraße) was holding an open house day and our youngsters demonstrated their almost ready NG-UAVP.
4 months ago I began to buildup a shiny new server system for
our new Moodle
We currently have an instance of v. 2.0.2+ running.
After playing around with it over the last few months, we have been very satisfied with it.
Now we currently in the phase where we are comparing Clixs vs moodle. One of them will be our next elearning solution.
so stay tuned…..
