This is not a Buddypress Courseware issue, please check in with the theme vendor to fix it. Thanks.
@LPH2005 the per group option was added into 0.1 release.
I marked the plugin as RC (tested on clean install today, fixed a couple of aesthetic bugs).
The download link: http://stas.nerd.ro/pub/data/2010_sushkov_trunk-r1053.zip
@LPH2005, Not yet, I will probably add this option asap, mostly once we get the 0.1 release stable (which I plan very soon).
@PJ, the dashboard warning, should be fixed now, also some other CSS fixes.
@PJ, download the zip, and extract everything from `/2010/sushkov/branches/0.1/` to a directory named `courseware`.
Move the directory to your plugins folder.
Report if it works.
The Courseware component will get a group here on bp.org asap.
@Jalien already described everything. With BuddyPress Courseware you can create a virtual class out of BuddyPress group with courses, assignments, schedules, bibliography and gradebook (solutions/assignment responses will be ready soon). Adding Francesco’s bp-album you will also add media content to it.
Both plugins are worth to be checked during August, since that’s the time when GSoC period ends.
@Jalien, I committed Gradebook component in latest svn revision. You might want to take a look.
Create an assignment and you should have access to its gradebook instantly.
Thanks a lot, I’ll be checking more often this thread from now on. Looking forward for your feedback @brianglanz
@Jalien, gradebook should be ready in a week or so. The idea is to use BuddyPress forums as a platform for students solutions postings, and implement a grading system above it. All the data later will be pulled into main Courseware dashboard.
A testing version is available now, but it has no gradebook so far, and will require UI/UX work. A final version is scheduled at the end of my gsoc period, which is end of this summer.
Basically the API approach I’m using is the same as in WordPress: Actions and Filters. The component will be full of hooks so extending it should be a snap.
Here’s the initial list of features: http://gsoc2010.wordpress.com/stas-suscov-academic-suite/
The new BuddyPress Courseware I’m working on, will kick ass, I wouldn’t even bother testing moodle
I think it’s just the customized string, they changed `Friends` into `Followers`.
@JeffSayre, maybe that can be handled somehow by BP? Add a hook that will deactivate all the BP plugins and then ask to reactivate them manually by admin?
Also, I suggest changing the subject of the topic, since it’s not relevant and people can get confused (I felt like that after reading it)
If you use localized version (`define (‘WPLANG’, ‘whatever_ROCKS’);`), comment it. Localization catalogs uses a lot of memory.
I’m missing a lot icons in BuddyPress.
there’s an interesting thread started on this subject:
Just my 2 cents.
I’ve been following the noserub community for a while and found their concept amazing back in time when there were just a couple of OpenSource solutions to build a real social network. Unfortunately they failed both as the community and as the target audience. Diaspora seems the same thing to me, but who knows maybe one of them is lucky enough to cover the whole team dreams
I know this thing is on hype (make something to replace Facebook), but people forgot that Facebook is not just a social network, it’s a high technical framework that innovated such concepts like API, Application Platforms, scalability and come on, their are the most notable product that still uses PHP (to which they contributed back a lot). As a developer is a pleasure to work with their technologies, as a user it’s amazingly easy to use it.
My opinion is that the system is broken, not the Facebook. Facebook is just another product to fail into society’s racism/criticism. Go on, stop using facebook and keep using Google’s products, or Microsoft/Apple’s software products, lets see how long that will last.
BuddyPress will surely grow, there will be one day it will get features for distributed integration but until then, the community behind it matters, because they to become the future developers.
