Moodle 2 to launch in June 2012
19 December 2011
Moodle is used in almost all taught courses across UCL to support a diverse range of learning and teaching. In June 2012 we will be upgrading to version 2, which features several improvements and some new functionality.
Moodle has been UCL’s institutional online learning environment since 2008. The LTSS and a specialist project management team are currently testing Moodle 2 to ensure a smooth, problem-free switchover.
The existing course content, general structure and behaviour of Moodle are not changing, so the transition should not be too disruptive. At the same time, course tutors will need to learn about the enhancements and new features available in Moodle 2. These include:
- Course enrolment and integration of Portico cohorts
- Improved look and feel
- Linking and integration with other UCL systems
- Enriched course content (video, audio, text, mathematical expressions)
- Mobile access
- Structured pathways through course activities material
Access to Moodle will be read-only, via the Archive, while existing courses are converted to Moodle 2 between June 16th and 25th 2012. Please contact email@example.com if you have any concerns.
