Moodle 2.3 is Here
Remote-Learner’s Suggestions for Customers
With the recent release of Moodle 2.3 on June 25th, Remote-Learner has already completed a range of quality assurance testing and debugging activities that customers will directly benefit from. Additional subset quality assurance tests are in process to ensure that any significant regressions will not interfere with eager customers’ desire to test-drive it first.
Martin Dougiamas is optimistic about the new release’s implications and applications:
“I’m really keen to see Moodle 2.3 in the hands of teachers. Our development teams have added a long list of new interface features that address our feedback from the community about the things that annoy them most and the result is a smoother and more modern course management experience. Perhaps the most exciting for many people will be the changes to file handling: not only are the display and handling of files improved a lot from Moodle 2.2, but you can now drag and drop files, text and links straight in to the course page from your desktop or browser, and they will automatically be added to the course as the appropriate resources. We’ve also vastly improved the repository interface, making it even better than ever to pair Moodle with a document management system or an internet service like Dropbox, so that you can truly keep your files in the repository where they belong.”
Remote-Learner advises its more eager customers to be aware that full support for Moodle 2.3 will not be offered right off the bat. Being aware of this information in advance, Moodle 2.3 enthusiasts are still encouraged to download and experiment with 2.3 with full awarenss that full support will be forthcoming shortly—perhaps by the end of September, maybe sooner. We promise you’ll be the first to know.
