We have upgraded EMU's Moodle to version 3.3. This release brings new features and fixes. Here is a preview of the main features:

  • We will be rolling out the new, updated and simplified theme called “Boost”. This theme also improves how notifications and messages appear. The intent of the theme is for Moodle to look the same across all devices (computer, tablet, and mobile) and while using the Moodle app. See this video for further info.

  • An improved dashboard that allows you to keep track of what is happening in your course activities.

  • The Moodle assignment module will now convert submissions to .pdf allowing you to view the document from your screen without having to download it. You will also be able to grade and annotate from this screen similar to Turnitin. You will still be able to download the submission if that is preferred.

For more details about Moodle 3.3 please refer to the new features tour or the version release notes. There are also a series of videos that describe new version 3.3 features.
