Moodle 2.5 and 2.4 Videos

2.5 should be coming to Monash later this year, most of the features are useful, but mainly cosmetic.

One I particularly like is the ability to drag and drop images into your site.  There are also new Folder settings that make viewing the files easier.

The thing in 2.5 that has people in a bit of a froth is ‘badges’, which I’m a bit indifferent about.  They might be useful to encourage engagement particularly in the K-12 sector, but I’m not sure there is enough pay off for the average academic (see more info here) but I’m happy to be proven wrong.

This video has more about 2.5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfFIhkM1p_o

For us the the big over due feature (which is actually in 2.4) is the Group submission for assignments, which means you can now (at last) automatically give one mark and provide one feedback to the entire group.

This video 2.4 is quite good http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eolEyP9eeSU#t=757
