There’s an iPad sitting in my office at work, and I’m loathe to try it out. But, I must since it will be a key part of a new initiative (grant-funded, I hope). Of course, accessing Moodle via an iPad is important. Although the latest version of Moodle 1.9.11 allows for a more friendly HTML editor to browsers like Google Chrome, etc., and I’ve already effected an upgrade, I was thrilled to read the following tip from Jon Fila:

1. Download the Terra browser. It’s free. It looks better than Safari (more like Chrome).

2. Click on Settings, it looks like a cog just like on the homescreen on the top right.

3. Click Identify As

4. Select FireFox 3.6

With Terra browser on iPad, apparently you can take full advantage of the HTML editor in Moodle. I’m not sure if Safari on iPad would work with HTML editing on a Moodle 1.9.11 site, but it appears Jon’s solution will regardless.

I’m looking forward to giving this a try sometime next week! In the meantime, anyone else tried it?
