New wordpress plugins for teaching staff

This week we have released two new plugins for wordpress, that may be of use.

1. Academic Unit Conditional Content.

This lets you display content on your wordpress pages for specific Academic Units or faculties. An example would be if you had a generic page with multiple discipline specific examples. When students login they would ONLY see the content relevant to them

2. Learning Activity Box

Learning Activity Example

If you want to draw students attention to a learning activity on a page, you can make it stand out using this plugin. You have options to change the Activity title, and also (optionally) say ow long the activity will take. It produces a nice object as shown here.



Both plugins can be installed in the usual manner which is Plugins > Activate plugin

If you’d like more information on any of these please get in touch
