How to create MUMIE Tasks with Drag&Drop

It's possible to create one or more MUMIE Tasks by simply dragging problems into your course. There are two methods available but we recommend to use Lemon since its easier to use and supports all available languages.

Note: This feature is not activated by default. Please talk with your MOODLE administrator, if you'd like to use it.

How to create MUMIE Tasks with Drag&Drop via Lemon

This is the recommended method to import MUMIE Tasks via drag & drop. Just follow the steps below:

Step Description Example
1 Open the Lemon multi problem selector for your preferred source by clicking on the corresponding link in this list:

- OMB+
- OMB+ Testserver
- Aufgabenpool
- HM4MINT
2 Open your moodle course in a different browser window and make sure editing mode is enabled.

If it's not, you need to activate editing mode by clicking the options symbol on the top right and select Turn editing on
3 Search the available problems by checking the filter options on the left, select the ones you want to use and drag them into your moodle course.

Remember that you need to refresh your browser afterimporting more than one Mumie Task. Otherwise not all new activities will be shown.

[Alternative] How to create a new German MUMIE Task with Drag&Drop from MUMIE course

You can also drag Trainings, Quizzes and Final Exams from MUMIE into your moodle course. Due to technical limitations, this feature works best in German. If you want to use another language, please use the method detailed above.

If it's not, you need to activate editing mode by clicking the options symbol on the top right and select Turn editing on

4 Done!
You can still edit the MUMIE task to customize it.

Important notice

Currently, grades for the MUMIE Tasks are only updated when they are displayed in the Moodle gradebook (e.g. the course's grader report is viewed or the student opens his own gradebook). This means that we cannot guarantee that all grades are up-to-date, when they are accessed by other means than the one described above.

FAQ

  • Why are the drop down menus for MUMIE servers, MUMIE courses and MUMIE exercises empty?

    Before you can add any MUMIE task, you need to add a valid MUMIE server. Check the section How to add a new MUMIE Task to a course for reference.

  • Why are not all grades up-to-date?

    Currently, grades for the MUMIE Tasks are only updated when they are displayed in the Moodle gradebook (e.g. the course's grader report is viewed or the student opens his own gradebook).

  • Why is the automatic completion status of a MUMIE Task not updated?

    The automatic completion status depends on the MUMIE Task's grade. Please read Why are not all grades up-to-date? for more information.

  • Why is there no button to add MUMIE servers?

    If there is no button, the administrator has disabled this option.

  • Why is Max Grade always displayed as 100 in the gradebook setup even though it was set it to another value?

    This is an old bug. It was patched in MUMIE Task v1.3.5. We decided not to fix this automatically for older MUMIE Tasks because it could potentially interfere with gradebook consistency. If you want your older MUMIE Tasks to display the correct max grade, all you need to do is open your MUMIE Task, make sure that the max grade is set to the desired value and click save.

  • Why are calendar entries for due date not translated?

    Due to technical limitations by moodle, calendar entries will always be created in the language of the teacher who set the due date. Unfortunately, we cannot display other translations.
