Moodle updates and service report

Moodle recharge event

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 read an overview of some of the new features for Moodle 3.1.

User story: Moodle Quizzes

Quizzes within Moodle can offer insight into how students are performing in certain topics; such information could be used to establish a student’s understanding of a topic and a level of knowledge before starting a topic.



User story: Course Layout

“We chose to have a collapsible view as otherwise the page was far too long and meant that students would have to scroll through a lot of unnecessary information to find what they were looking for.”

(European Institute Charlie Fiddy MSC General Programme)
