During the Moodle Hack/Doc Fest pre-meeting on Tuesday, 12/21/10 we discussed evaluating Moodle 2.0. That in turn gave rise to a question of triaging evaluation tasks — what’s most important to our campuses? What’s most likely to break? What new features do we want to test?
Here’s our initial breakdown, based on Tuesday’s meeting. Please add your own suggestions and priorities as comments on this post.
- gradebook and how enrollments work.
- what happens when someone is unenrolled from a course, deleted from moodle, etc.
- ways to get around auto-deleting student course information
- How does uploading of files work?
- SMB mounts?
- External repos?
- User quotas?
- Block and Module Evaluations
- needed updates for database backend?
- Restoring courses from 1.9, upgrading courses from 1.9
- Thirdparty apps like plagerism tools
- Moodle Luminis Message Broker Plugin
- 2.0 beta in January
Our goal is to assess the state of Moodle 2.0 and determine what documentation is going to be needed, what code must be upgraded, and offer suggestions on when to make the move.
A list of major changes and additions to Moodle 2.0 can be found on the Moodle Documentation web site:
