Moodle 2.3

Started by Simon Condon 30 Jul 2012 10:37am () Replies (2)

I had the pleasure of attending the Moodle Moot AU last month. It was exciting to see demonstrated the new features available in Moodle 2.3.

The key advantage for teachers will be drag and drop capabilities in terms of uploading files and folders into a course.

Another advance is the inclusion of Repository sites such as drop box or Flickre in the file chooser. Using these services mean that changes to resources which are synced to these sites  will a automatically update in the moodle course, as it acts more as a link than actually uploading the resource.

There were some good workshops on improving course formatting avoiding the "Scroll of Death". New formatting options can be downloaded into moodle as plugins, and allow options such as grids of the the topics, or displaying one topic while the other topics are available as tabs.

I have uploaded overviews of the sessions attended to the NEAL website news.

    The drag and drop feature for publishing files is great but note that it is not supported by all web browser versions. For example drag and drop is not supported in versions of Internet Explorer before IE9.
