Introducing the New Add-On Manager: The Plugin Management Tool for Remote Learner Clients

By December 5, 2018 March 3rd, 2020 No Comments

The Add-On Manager is a one-stop, self-service tool for installing, updating, repairing, and uninstalling plugins from your Remote Learner site. The hundreds of Moodle® and Totara® plugins available through Add-On Manager have been evaluated and approved by Remote Learner, so you know they are safe to use.

Add-On Manager is available for free and is exclusively for Remote Learner clients. It is part of the R-L Toolkit, a suite of administrator tools exclusively available to Remote Learner clients that also includes Site Dashboard and BackTrack.

Access to the universe of plugins that the Add-On Manager curates is one of the most popular features of a Remote Learner hosted solution. Plugins extend the functionality of your learning environment and give you the flexibility to implement them on your schedule. You’re in control. Whether you want to incorporate video, gamification, e-commerce, or any number of other elements to your learning program, the marketplace of plugins available to you via the Add-On Manager offers numerous ways to achieve your goals.

Add-On Manager has been refreshed with a new look for improved usability and functionality:

  • Identify valuable plugins with simple filter, sort, list, and search options
  • Install, uninstall, repair, and update plugins from a single interface
  • Schedule automatic updates for all or select plugins
  • View the latest and most popular plugins at a glance
  • Redesigned for a more intuitive and efficient user experience
  • Designed with client input

Available for Remote-Learner Sites Running:

  • Moodle 3.4 and 3.5
  • Totara 11
