A Tutor plugin for student notes

Project description

This is a plugin for Tutor to easily add the Open edX note-taking app to an Open edX platform. This app allows students to annotate portions of the courseware (see the official documentation).

Notes in action

Installation

The plugin is currently bundled with the binary releases of Tutor. If you have installed Tutor from source, you will have to install this plugin from source, too:

pip install tutor-notes

Then, to enable this plugin, run:

tutor plugins enable notes

You should beware that the notes.<LMS_HOST> domain name should exist and point to your server. For instance, if your LMS is hosted at http://myopenedx.com, the notes service should be found at http://notes.myopenedx.com.

If you would like to host the notes service at a different domain name, you can set the NOTES_HOST configuration variable (see below). When testing Tutor on a local computer, this will be automatically set to notes.local.overhang.io.

To enable student notes for a specific course, you should go to the course advanced settings in the studio, and set “Enable Student Notes” to “true”. Then, hit “save changes”.

Configuration

  • NOTES_MYSQL_PASSWORD (default: "{{ 8|random_string }}")
  • NOTES_SECRET_KEY (default: "{{ 24|random_string }}")
  • NOTES_OAUTH2_SECRET (default: "{{ 24|random_string }}")
  • NOTES_DOCKER_IMAGE (default: "{{ DOCKER_REGISTRY }}overhangio/openedx-notes:{{ NOTES_VERSION }}")
  • NOTES_HOST (default: "notes.{{ LMS_HOST }}")
  • NOTES_MYSQL_DATABASE (default: "notes")
  • NOTES_MYSQL_USERNAME (default: "notes")

These values can be modified with tutor config save --set PARAM_NAME=VALUE commands.
