        (b) zip: the Moodle.org -> Plugins repository (search for HotPot)

To INSTALL or UPDATE the HotPot module
======================================

    1. get the files for this plugin from any one of the following locations:

        (a) GIT: https://github.com/gbateson/moodle-mod_hotpot.git

        (d) zip: https://bateson.kochi-tech.ac.jp/zip/plugins_mod_hotpot.zip

       If you are installing from a zip file, unzip the zip file, to create a folder called "hotpot"
       and upload or move this "hotpot" folder to the "mod" folder on your Moodle 2.x site
       to create a new folder at "mod/hotpot" - not "mod/hotpot/hotpot" :-)

        if install/upgrade does not begin automatically, you can initiate it manually by navigating to the following link:
        Settings -> Site administration -> Notifications
