New Plugin – Embed the ChemCollective Virtual Lab problems using VlabEmbed

Another plugin added to the Moodle plugins database this week is very beneficial for the chemistry teachers. It helps in embedding Chemcollective virtual lab problems using the Vlab Java applet.

It embeds any assigments (both local and global). This filter will replace links to a Vlab file (.xml) in [vlab]…[/vlab] block with a java applet that plays that ChemCollective Virtual Lab inline.

However, the installation is a bit tedious for newbie moodlers and mentioned in detail here.

You can download the latest version of the VLabEmbed plugin from https://moodle.org/plugins/view/filter_vlabembed and here is a demo site for the plugin to show the real action: http://ict-chem.ccjournals.eu
