Facebook Connect for Moodle

Embed a Facebook Connect widget into a Moodle block.  Created a sticky block in Moodle, and then added this HTML code to a block that displays in my student’s “My Moodle” page.  The code uses a yourminis.com widget, that is embedded in the block, that students can use to pull in their Facebook data (inside the block).

Visit here for the widget for the block.
Scroll down and click on “Copy Me” to grab the embed code for your Moodle block.
