We have upgraded EMU's Moodle to version 2.8. This release brings new features and fixes.

Highlights of the new features include:

  • New 'Atto' text editor with comment autosave.
  • Improved grader report and user report.
  • New natural weighting option within the gradebook.
  • Improved quiz question selection and ordering.
  • New connection to Google Drive: upload files from Drive directly into Moodle.

For more details about Moodle 2.8 please refer to the new features tour or the version release notes. There are also a series of videos that describe new version 2.8 features.

(Note that 'Email to private files' and 'Email replies to forum posts' require extensive server configuration and are not available at this time.)
