Completion Progress. Visual reminders are what sells this plugin for Young, a color-coded time management tool with teacher oversight and anticipated action methods. block_completion_progress

“Essential” theme. A clean, customizable and highly dependable theme, Young judges by its top popularity placement. The “farthest possible from Moodle” tag rings him well. theme_essential

Offline Quiz. Do not confuse this plugin with Moodle Mobile offline access capabilities. This one eases the digital transition by automatically logging pen-and-paper quiz marks on the Moodle Gradebook. mod_offlinequiz

Onetopic. One activity becomes the central point of this approach, where every other supporting elements is related to it, often visually so. format_onetopic

H5P. Our next plugin needs no introduction. Dozens of content types are available in growing numbers and more refined code. Need we remind you H5P if fully open source? mod_hvp

Grade Me. This plugin is a productivity ally for teachers. It places every assignment due to grade in a tidy display to deal with without delay. block_grade_me

Zoola Analytics. A proprietary plugin, Zoola is, in Young word’s, a “solution that better communicates the value of learning,” built specifically for Moodle and Totara. Know more at Zoola.io.

Socialwall. It gives Moodle the comfortably familiar look of a “Feed” on the front page, with plenty of sorting and filtering choices. format_socialwall

HotPot. Hot Potatoes is still a fairly popular open source suite for question building, versatile and relatively friendly with the Moodle environment. HotPot fills in the gaps for easy quizzing. mod_hotpot

Moove“. Another choice from the pantheon of themes you cannot go wrong with, this made in Brazil look is all about intuitiveness and minimalism, but also color, warmth and optimism. theme_moove
