#iPad Browser Experimentation with #Moodle


There's an iPad sitting in my office at work, and I'm loathe to try it out. But, I must since it will be a key part of a new initiative (grant-funded, I hope). Of course, accessing Moodle via an iPad is important. Although the latest version of Moodle 1.9.11 allows for a more friendly HTML editor to browsers like Google Chrome, etc., and I've already effected an upgrade, I was thrilled to read the following tip from Jon Fila:

1. Download the Terra browser. It's free. It looks better than Safari (more like Chrome).

2. Click on Settings, it looks like a cog just like on the homescreen on the top right.

3. Click Identify As

4. Select FireFox 3.6

With Terra browser on iPad, apparently you can take full advantage of the HTML editor in Moodle. I'm not sure if Safari on iPad would work with HTML editing on a Moodle 1.9.11 site, but it appears Jon's solution will regardless.

I'm looking forward to giving this a try sometime next week! In the meantime, anyone else tried it?

I can now confirm that it works on a 1.9.9 site as well. You just get a warning message that it might not work. a 1.9.11 site does not have a warning.

The only thing I can do at this point is to select text and affect the changes that way. To bring up the keyboard you have to click settings, and identify again as Safari Mobile and use your keyboard there.

Unfortunately at this point it involves a little toggling back and forth.

Sorry it's not as easy as I made it sound. I was just excited to see the editor there.
