The Opaque question type Opaque (http://docs.moodle.org/en/Development:Opaque) is the Open protocol for accessing question engines. The Opaque protocol was originally created by sam marshall of the Open University (http://www.open.ac.uk/) as part of the OpenMark project (http://java.net/projects/openmark/). The Moodle implementation of Opaque was done by Tim Hunt. As well as OpenMark, this question type can also be used to connect to STACK (http://www.stack.bham.ac.uk/) and possibly other question systems we don't know about. Opaque has been available since Moodle 1.8, but this version is compatible with Moodle 2.1+. (For older versions, see http://cvs.moodle.org/contrib/plugins/question/type/opaque/.) This question type also requires the Opaque question behaviour to be installed. To install using git, type this command in the root of your Moodle install git clone git://github.com/timhunt/moodle-qtype_opaque.git question/type/opaque git clone git://github.com/timhunt/moodle-qbehaviour_opaque.git question/behaviour/opaque Then add question/type/opaque to your git ignore. Alternatively, download the zip from https://github.com/timhunt/moodle-qtype_opaque/zipball/master unzip it into the question/type folder, and then rename the new folder to opaque. Then download the zip https://github.com/timhunt/moodle-qbehaviour_opaque/zipball/master unzip it into the question/behaviour folder, and then rename the new folder to opaque. Once installed you need to go to the question type settings page (Site administration -> Plugins -> Question types -> Opaque) to set up the URLs of the question engines you wish to use.
