New Moodle LAE Releases for May 2022

There are three new Moodle: Liberal Arts Edition releases. There are no new LAE features; these are maintenance releases only. You can download the updates from the CLAMP code release archive.

The next stable releases are scheduled for mid-July. Moodle HQ has released Moodle 4.0; CLAMP evaluated the development version of 4.0 at the Winter 2022 Hack/Doc Fest. Please see CLAMP’s report for further details. CLAMP is preparing a beta release of the LAE distribution of Moodle 4.0 and will evaluate it at the forthcoming Hack/Doc Fest at Carleton College.

The Summer 2022 Moodle Hack/Doc Fest will take place during the last week of June 2022. This will be a hybrid event with two major components:
