New features in Moodle 3.2

September 1st, 2017 at 09:09

An update of Moodle on 7-8th September takes us to version 3.2. It is predominantly similar to the previous version but has a few new features and some interface updates to make it easier to use. While we do this upgrade, Moodle will be completely unavailable from 8 am on Thursday 7th to 6 pm on Friday 8th September.

A few highlights are:

  • The new Recycle bin means you no longer need worry about losing accidentally deleted course items or courses, as it’s now possible easily to restore them.
  • Dashboard is the new name for My Home and there’s a new profile page with quick links to blog entries, forum posts, badges – and a new preferences page to customise your user experience and notifications
  • Improvements to the Forums mean you can pin a “sticky” post to the top of a thread, reply by email, share links to individual posts (not just threads) and subscribe to individual posts so you can be very selective about exactly what discussions you are notified about.
  • Enhanced features in various activities including four new question types in Quiz, and the ability to select more than one option in Choice (Poll)
  • You can now delete a section with all its contents in one go.
  • There are improvements to the Atto editor particularly relating to creating tables and equations.

We are publishing a series of blog posts about the new features, or new ways to use old features. See
