Moodle Upgrade Complete - May 15th
New Features in v3.8
By Chris Pratt at eThink Education
The latest major version release of Moodle has a variety of new features, addressing a number of areas from better editing of question banks to the beginning of integrating H5P, as well as further improvements for forums and administration of badges. Below are the highlights of this new version.
Highlights of the new version include:
- Ability to filter the calendar by month, day and upcoming events
- Forums can now be graded
- Forum summary report is now available
- Exporting of Forum discussions
- Analytics includes two new insights
- Filter by group when manually awarding badges
- Emojis can be included in Moodle messages
- Session Timeout warning
- Question bank now includes easily visible ID numbers and tags, along with an edit menu
- First phase of H5P integration. If you already use H5P then we believe the next step of integration will be of more interest to existing users.
We also recommend reviewing the New Features overview on Moodle.org for more information.
