      Description

      From Martin's notes, we need to

      Standardise shortnames of courses to include a language code that we can use programmatically

      I guess there's a reason for using course short names, rather than course ID numbers?

        Heh, very good point Helen! Course ID number would make much more sense and its how other extenal systems do this stuff.

        Are we using one course per language (maximum?). In which case, can we agree on the standard language code and start adding the languages? Do we need to consider parent languages or anything in the idnumber? (I think not).

        We will have more than one English course, assuming courses such as Business Uses and Moodle for Language Teaching wish to use the useful scale. I can't think of a reason for considering parent language, but I'm going to add lang codes to the moodle.org courses review spreadsheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AmamVlPpCnn4dFRVcHhtZG8wa2ZxdmU1UDRoM3BWZ0E and see how it looks.

        How about we standardise the idnumber as langcode/something

        e.g.
        en/usingmoodle
        en/business

        Just noting that we've agreed to use course ID numbers rather than short names, using lang codes and a pipe(|) as added to the courses review spreadsheet.

        Having thought about this more, I think that we are going to need a admin page for all courses to:
        1/ Set the language which the courses posts should appear under (if any)
        2/ To select the rating to use for identifying useful posts (or no rating)

        The reason is that:

        • Not all courses will use the same scale (we'd need to enforce english scale for that)
        • Some courses are likely to not use any scale at all - in this case we can just show recent posts instead.

        Hi Helen,

        I'm closing this issue won't fix, as I don't think its necessary to do this any more. We need a bit more information to track which scale is which, so i've made a basic table and admin interface in order to link a course to a language making this not necessary.

        Thanks Dan, glad I hadn't got around to adding course ID numbers yet
