Here are Poodll HQ we have been busy making the recorders look a little better. There is some work to go yet, and the recorders that we have made will be undergoing more changes. The focus has been on building the underlying skin mechanism that allows not just us, but you also, to create custom layout and design recorders. Here are some samples of recorders in development ..
This is the new Burnt Rose recorder skin. It uses font awesome for the buttons and right now works best on Boost in Moodle 3.3. If you add font awesome to your Moodle additional html area, you can use it on Moodle 3.2. The audio player features a hidden “preview” player and the odd behaviour of the original burnt rose skin has been fixed.
This recorder was designed to encourage users to complete the final “save/upload” step. So we arranged the buttons vertically and placed checkmarks beside them. Its seriously plain right now. We will be adding some colors and more visuals soon … but you see the idea.
You can use them right now, if you are enthusiastic. In the Poodll filter general settings page, under “HTML5 Recorders” you can choose the recorder skin from a dropdown. Bear in mind right now this affects the recorders site wide. We will soon bring in the ability to choose recorders for course or activities.
