Moodle 2.8.5 Upgrade

This upgrade brings many improvements to Moodle itself as well as new plugins that have been requested by several schools.

  • Drag and drop into new text editor "Atto" (needs enabling)
  • Office365, repositories and assignments
  • VPL- Virtual Programming Lab is a activity module for Moodle that manages programming assignments. (There will be an extra charge for this service because of its requirements.)
  • Built-in help
    • We are giving you a button to get support ASAP for all your teachers.
  • Improved Mathematical character support
  • See MDL release notes for further new things

Hosted schools will be upgraded on Wednesday 8th April from 5pm and will involve minimal downtime. Your site will be unavailable during the upgrade but as soon as you can login you can assume it has been done.

As always thank you for your patience and if you have any questions about what is happening don't hesitate to drop us a message. Or even use the new support widget which will appear on your new Moodle.
