On the morning of Tuesday, June 30, 2015 UMass Amherst IT completed a planned upgrade to Moodle 2.8. This upgrade continues to make Moodle more usable and efficient, and includes several features instructors and students have been asking for including:

  • a new text editor that auto-saves every minute;
  • the ability to receive email notifications for selected discussions within a Forum activity;
  • the option for users to  collapse, or “dock,” sidebar Blocks.
