October 2011 Modifications to Moodle

Today we applied several fixes to Moodle as part of our October 2011 Release. To complete this release, we will upgrade to Moodle 2.0.5 on Saturday morning (10/29) during our standard maintenance window.

Changes from this release and the upgrade will be invisible to most users. Some highlights:

  • Moodle now updates personal profile information from SPIRE on a daily basis.
  • There is a new role that instructors can use to give a student more time on quizzes.
  • Default options for file handling, grade upload, and TurnItIn have been changed to simplify these processes for instructors.
  • Other changes in the 2.0.5 upgrade involve bug fixes and security.
