What’s new in Moodle-Winter 2013

MoodleThe Moodle development community is constantly trying to improve their code and add features to the core Moodle product.  Moodlerooms, our cloud hosting provider, usually waits a few weeks (or months) to fully test the changes before releasing them to their clients.  Moodlerooms also adds new features to their joule product at that time.  Below is a link to the list of the extensive changes that were made in December 2013.

Most Noticeable Change:

The first change you may notice in your Moodle courses is the Course Settings page (see the screenshot below).  Moodle has collapsed the many sections of this page and provided “drop-down triangles” so you don’t have to scroll through an extremely long page.  Just click the gray triangle next to the section you are interested in and the section will expand.  Click again to collapse the section.

Moodle also moved the Course Availability section to the General section and renamed it Visible.  This setting controls whether students see your Moodle course or not in their list of available courses.  Set the Visible control to Show instead of Hide when you are ready for your students to see your Moodle course.
