      Description

      Hi,

      what do you think about the idea using geolocation in Moodle Mobile? With geolocation or gps we could get a little bit of gamification into Moodle.

      In a course we can allow or disallow the access to a resource, to an activity or to a complete course section with conditions. There is a condition to do something with the mobile app or to do it only with the browser. Also I found conditions for access if someone is member of a group or if he got a activity completion.

      I 'm looking forward for a condition that someone must be at the right geolocation to get a resource or to get a badge. Yes, there is the course format "format_gps". This course format can hide course sections and it shows them only at the correct place. The problem is that this feature looks fine in a browser but the feature does not work in Moodle Mobile.

      The format_gps was an idea from Jürgen Kappus, ka:media in Düsseldorf, Germany.

      To show the features Jürgen made some films about his idea.

      What do you think? Could geolocation be a feature for mobile learning with Moodle?

      Best regards, Ralf
