The Lightbox Gallery Resource is a contributed module for Moodle 1.8 or later. This resource allows you to create image galleries within your Moodle course. The Lightbox system is a set of scripts than can be used to apply various effects to image galleries.
As a course teacher, you are able to create, edit and delete galleries. The main configuration option involves telling Moodle which directory contains the images you want to include in the gallery. Small thumbnails will then be generated, which are used for the thumbnail view of the gallery.
Clicking on any of the thumbnails brings that image into focus, and allows you to scroll through the gallery at your leisure. Using the Lightbox scripts creates nice transition effects when loading and scrolling through the images.
This plugin was designed to be compatible from Moodle version 1.8 upwards, and as such may not behave the same in older versions.
