Moodle Recharge

Moodle is getting a recharge for 2017/18.  In addition to the usual refresh of all courses we will be upgrading to version 3.1.  On the 27 June LTI went through some of the new features for editors and unveiled our new theme for the platform.  We also shared the results of our Moodle audit and invited Moodle editors to try out our new features ‘my feedback’ and Moodle labs.

A summary of the Moodle recharge event can be found on our blog and an overview of some of the new features for Moodle 3.1 can be found on our Moodle portal.
