The world’s open source learning platform presents its most intuitive version to date, Moodle 3.1.
Moodle’s latest release contains plenty of useful features and improvements, including much-anticipated support for Competency Based Education (CBE) frameworks. Using Moodle 3.1, educators can define learning plans for students, based on competencies in any subject area. Students can then prove their competency by completing coursework or manually uploading evidence in other ways. The improved platform also has the necessary infrastructure for recognition of prior learning (RPL).
The first feature wholly contributed by the Moodle Users Association – the recycle bin – is another new feature of note. This new tool allows users to restore deleted activities and courses back to their original locations.
Also included in this release are plenty of usability and performance improvements, such as a brand new assignment grading interface, global search function, assignment file conversion tool and improvements to tagging and section editing. See the full list of improvements and features in Moodle 3.1
A massive thank you to the Moodle HQ team and the many contributors from the global community who have contributed to the project!
