    Moodle Portfolio Block

    Anyone got this to work on a Windows machine?

    Documentation is practically non-existent on moodle.org and the included 'install howto' file makes it very clear the writers of the block don't like the idea of their lovely Linux work being sullied by nasty Microsoft boxes. Doesn't help the poor techs like me who have been asked to install the block though and do not have the option of using the wonderful world of Linux.

    Any help very gratefully received - anyone posting 'just install Linux' will be ignored ...

    Re: Moodle Portfolio Block

    It's here - http://moodle.org/mod/data/view.php?d=13&rid=82

    Installing on Linux has a brief guide but the intimation is 'Do this and it'll work'. Installation on Windows is headed 'Ham-Fisted Installation' and just says 'unpack the archive and copy the relevant folders into the root of your Moodle installation'. Unfortunately, it is not immediately obvious which folders go where...

    Re: Moodle Portfolio Block

    it is not immediately obvious which folders go where...
    But the readme clearly states...

    If you're really the daring sort of GUI user, you could just unzip
    portfolio.zip, go into the resulting portfolio directory, and copy 'n paste
    THE CONTENTS of each directory in there into your Moodle installation root.

    Then go to http://your-moodle-site/portfolio/

    Yes, tried that - didn't work. I'll have another go at it later today and see what happens.

    I'm afraid I can't play with it here as it's not compatible with 1.7
