Colgate Hack/Doc Fest: Day 3 – Moodle 2.4 Docs, Language Lesson

The third day of Moodle Hack/Doc Fest was a quiet one as people spent time finishing up projects.

One of these projects was documentation; documentation for Moodle 2.4 is now available through Google Drive. While the Doc’ers were able to spend some time reviewing Moodle 2.5, we don’t have documentation complete for that version. That said, 2.5 is more about improving usability than it is adding features, so the 2.4 documentation should still be helpful for those moving to 2.5. Read more
