The EnglishCentral plugin is fairly easy to install. Currently you must install via the ZIP file, but in future it will be available for install from Moodle.org.


  1. Download the module zipfile from Github. Visit https://github.com/gbateson/moodle-mod_englishcentral , click the green "Clone or download" button, and download the zip file.

  2. Visit your Moodle site’s plugin install page: Site administration -> plugins -> install plugins


  3. Drag the zip file that you downloaded into the ZIP Package area. And press the "Install plugin from the ZIP file" button.
    NB If the “mod” folder does not have the correct permissions you will see a warning message and will need to change the permissions of the folder. Contact your site admin, or Poodll support if you are unsure how to do that.

  4. If the installation does not begin, visit your Moodle site's notifications page: Site administration -> Notifications 

  5. Moodle will guide you through a series of pages and install the plugin. There are several pages displayed. On each, scroll to the bottom and press the button to continue.

  6. At the end of the installation process, the configuration settings will be displayed. See the next section for an explanation about those

Configuring the EnglishCentral Module

To configure the EnglishCentral Module, you must:

  1. Get a PartnerID, Consumer Key, Consumer Secret and Encrypted Secret from Poodll.com.
    You will get those when you purchase a subscription, but a free trial is also available. In either case contact Poodll support.

  2. The 4 main settings are: Partner ID, Consumer Key, Consumer Secret and Encrypted Secret (usually the same as Consumer Secret). Though they look complicated, you just need to paste them in once. After that you can forget all about them.


    If you skip or make a mistake on this step, you can add the credentials later by visiting:
    Site administration -> plugins -> activity modules -> EnglishCentral
