Create a responsive and dynamic Moodle site using JavaScript with Packt’s latest book

May 2011 | Content Management, Moodle

Packt is delighted to announce Moodle JavaScript Cookbook, a collection of over 50 step by step recipes to enhance Moodle with JavaScript and the Yahoo! User Interface Library. Written by Alastair Hole, author of award-winning Moodle repository plugin- MrCUTE, the book explores a wide range of modern interactive features, from AJAX to Animation to create more dynamic and responsive Moodle systems.

Moodle is a free source e-learning software platform. It has become very popular among educators around the world as a tool for creating online dynamic web sites for their students. Its open source license and modular design allows any developer to create additional modules and features.

Moodle JavaScript Cookbook starts off by explaining the basics of combining Moodle with JavaScript and its various libraries. It then shows readers how to integrate Yahoo! User Interface Library with Moodle and will be the main focus throughout the book. Readers will also learn how to add validation features to their Moodle forms, retrieve and process data from external sites in a range of formats using AJAX.

Users will be able to add feature rich spreadsheet-style data tables—sorting, paging, and inline editing. They will also be able to make use of advanced navigation controls—drop-down menus, tabbed panels, and modal windows. This book will also help them to integrate external libraries such as JQuery framework, MooTools framework, and Dojo framework.

With clear step-by-step instructions, this book is ideal for developers and administrators comfortable with customizing Moodle with the use of plugin modules, themes, and patches in order to make their site more dynamic. This book is out now and available from Packt. For more information, please visit: www.packtpub.com/moodle-javascript-cookbook/book
