🌈 Thomas Rosen YEAH, I just set my Emoji-Status! :D ... But I somehow thought I could use three emoji. I guess the textbox seemed long enough
🙄 Doug Belshaw I wrote about Emoji ID, an idea I had back in 2018 around three emoji representing you as a unique ID within federated social spaces: blog.moodle.net/20...

🙄 Doug Belshaw Hey everyone, someone on Twitter mentioned they were checking out mastadon.social, and it reminded me I haven't logged in here for a while!
☕ David Antoine Hello ! 1y 24w since your last post is a long break indeed :) Mastodon is nice but I prefer Sublevel's layout. I cancelled my account there so I don't know if they have improved their instance. It would be nice to have the same amount of users here, Mastodon is more frequented and probably more publicized...
Mark Dain Every time I try to load the site, it redirects to instances.mastodon... but just times out. Is it working for you? If so, please post a screenshot

Wgibbons Thanks. Right now I'm just trying to make sure that Moodle can issue badges the way I want. I plan to have 4 badges per assignment, ranging from 1-star to 4-star representing a "D" to "A" grade. It's doable, but Moodle doesn't make it as slick or as easy as I'd like. Any consensus on issuing badges to a failing grade? I was planning on issuing the results as letters as well as badges, with a 35-40% being "MF" for marginal fail, and <35 as "F". I'm leaning towards only issuing the grade letter to non-passing students and the passing ones get the badges as well as the letter.
🙄 Doug Belshaw So you've got to remember that the learner is in control at all times - that's one of the 'disruptive' things about badges. Are they likely to accept a 'fail' badge? No, probably not. But they probably *would* accept a 'participated in the course' badge - which everyone else would be issued as well.

Wgibbons That sounds great. We've been in touch via email over the summer, and I was at the CELT conference when you spoke in Galway last June. I'm quietly piloting badges at the moment, never used them until now. I'm writing my proposal for my doctorate at the moment, on the subject of designing a pathway using badges.
🙄 Doug Belshaw Excellent! Well if you need a soundboard, you've got my email address. :)
Wgibbons Hi Joe. I've only just joined. I had never heard of Sublevel until I listened to Doug's latest podcast today. I have the same question as you.
🙄 Doug Belshaw Welcome! It's just a space without that many people in it. I kind of thought we could take it over as a new place for edu-conversation? ;)
Vcassar me too. Have essentially stopped using Twitter because of the noise
🙄 Doug Belshaw It's just too broadcast-y (and I have to be careful that what I say makes sense out of context, because people often quote you - which is difficult to do in 140 characters!)

Joe Wilson Hello just having a poke around ..so why is this better than twitter ?

Eric Stoller Just checking things out.

Martijn Cool how you still chose to share it here and not keep it fully contained. The topic of different audiences through different networks is a really interesting one that hasn't been fully explored. Most websites concentrated on getting the biggest audience, no matter who. Maybe this will change now that advertising is being attacked as revenue form? Much to think about.
🙄 Doug Belshaw Well I've only got a few followers here and most aren't using Sublevel now! :)

Martijn We had a discussion about this over at indiewebcamp.com/i... turns out some people limit their "broadcast" by nitpicking where their post shows up. Sometimes going as far as hiding it from both the front page and the RSS/Atom feeds. This way you can still have the stability of publishing on your own domain, but also getting to chose who you give the link to.
🙄 Doug Belshaw That's a *really* good idea! I've got multiple blogs but they tend to be topic-based. Will have a think...

Martijn You do own a blog, so I vote for dougbelshaw.com
🙄 Doug Belshaw Thanks. You know when you've got stuff to dare that you don't want to broadcast *too* widely, though? I guess that was always the promise of Google+
