Moodle Upgrade 24 July 2019

June 28th, 2019 at 01:06

Moodle will be upgraded to version 3.6 on Wednesday 24th July.  Moodle will be unavailable for one full day (10 am to 6.30 pm UK, 5 pm – 1.30 am CN/MY).

There are mostly small improvements in Moodle 3.6: the biggest change you will see is to your Dashboard.

The new Course Overview block gives you a more visual tiled view of the modules you are enrolled on.

To help you find and navigate to the modules you use most often there’s a Recently Accessed block.  And you can “star” or favourite modules you wish to return to most often as well as Hide from your own view those you don’t want to see. (Note: this does not hide them from other people’s view, including students, just your own)

By default the module display shows All (everything except Hidden), but you can choose to show just those In progress, Starred or Hidden, or Past or Future.  You can sort by Course name or Last Accessed.  You can display the cards, visually, or have the choice of  a list or summary view.

               

Other new features (mainly minor) include:

  • bug fixes in Turnitin
  • group messaging
  • easier navigation in Moodle Assignment for markers
  • easier copying of items
  • images are displayed in forum notification emails
  • improvements to Quizzes
