Extensions installation

Hi! I am just learning the platform. I have installed the platform locally yet, but want to learn things before deploying it on a server. Now I have come to a question about extensions. I could not find specific information in the docs on how to actually install them. It should not be too complicated, from what I have understood, because xblocks are used. I still haven’t hold a grip on what xblocks are.

But how do I install an extension? I need, for instance this extension: GitHub - Stanford-Online/xblock-free-text-response.

I am trying to put the name of the plugin [freetextresponse] in the Advanced Module List section of my course. But it gives me an error: “Incorrectly formated JSON”. What am I doing wrong? Thank you.

This might help you
