During the first week of January 2021, ATSI will be completing a major upgrade of the Moodle system, taking us from version 3.6 to version 3.9- a change which will bring greater stability and new features. Read on for an overview of some of the key changes!
Moodle 3.9 will bring a tabbed view to the activity picker that pops up when you click “Add an Activity or Resource.” Now, in addition to the main tab, which will include all items, you will also have the choice to select tabs that show just Activities (gradable items) or just Resources (text tags, URLs, etc). You will also have the option to “Star” activities, which will be included on an additional tab for easy access- a favorites list is born!
H5P Content Integration
H5P- short for HTML5 Package- is a way of adding interactive content to your course page. For more information on how to use H5P in Moodle, see the introductory article on the Moodle.org site. Stay tuned for ongoing updates about how this can be used in your courses.
Go to Top
Included in the new version of Moodle will be a “Go to Top” button, making it easier for users to return to the top of their course page rather than having to scroll manually from where you are on the page.
