Moodle 2.9 Now Available

May 11, 2015 In: Blog, Moodle Written by: Master Editor

It gives us great pleasure to officially announce the release of Moodle 2.9. A simple & friendlier version of Moodle. Moodle 2.9 features a user-friendly redesign of the user-interface for the benefit of teachers, students and new Moodle users to create engaging learning environments. With improvements to the functionality, UI, course editing and lessons, this release is our best to date. Familiar features are reintroduced with updated titles for the common simplicity of users such as the new Dashboard, preferences, easier access to grades and the introduction of more initiative functions such as the image drag and drop. Discover all the new features within Moodle 2.9 here.
