Rolling back to learner support in Moodle

In April I posted a lengthy post on learner support in Moodle. Today, when I revisit this article I feel so stupid, because I forgot about it while being so focused on thinking about writing the actual article. However, more important is that Steinn has released the long awaited first version of our Moodle indicator block in the meantime.

What is interesting with this little package is that the system relies on service interfaces that allow to access real time learning activity analyses of Moodle. We have developed a bunch of "aggregators" that provide information about different aspects of a learner's activities as well as information about the related contexts (see the old article). Steinn has create a simple user interface that enables instructors to associate these aggregators to different visualisations that are then shown on the different Moodle pages.
