New committees are looking for volunteers!

The Collaborative Liberal Arts Moodle Project (CLAMP) is launching several new committees and is looking for volunteers to serve on them. The goals of these committees are to support CLAMP’s efforts outside of our Hack/Doc Fests, help prepare our members for the jump to Moodle 2.0, and provide more opportunities to schools to participate in meaningful ways.

The four committees are:

  • Development: work on bug fixes, develop existing and new functionality, and support the release of Moodle: Liberal Arts Edition.
  • Documentation: Create and update generic Moodle documentation – including written, audio, and video –  that can easily be adapted to individual colleges.
  • Event Planning: Plan brown bag lunches, special talks, and the biannual Hack/Doc Fests.
  • Next Generation: research and prepare for the next major version of Moodle; today that’s Moodle 2.0, which has major changes to blocks, modules, themes, and core code.

Here’s the schedule of upcoming committee meetings:

  • Event Planning – Monday, Dec. 6, 2010 @ 2 p.m. EST
  • Documentation – Wednesday, Dec. 8, 2010 @ 2 p.m. EST
  • Next Generation – Thursday, Dec 9, 2010 @ 2 p.m. EST
  • Development – Friday, Dec. 10, 2010 @ 2 p.m. EST

Anyone at a CLAMP school can serve on any committee; no nomination is required.

The Moodle 1.9.9+LAE v1.1 Beta 1 released

The Moodle 1.9.9+LAE v1.1 Beta 1 is available for download. This is a beta release meant for testing only; it is not recommended for use on production systems.

  • Code freeze will be on the end of the day on June 29.
  • We will release Beta 2 on 7/2/2010
  • The final version will be released on 7/9/2010.

This version of the LAE incorporates a number of bug fixes and new features developed at Hack/Doc Fest VI at DePauw University. We need help testing these features and verifying that they work for you.

Please post feedback as a comment on the project page. CLAMP members can post feedback to the Moodle 1.9.9+LAE v1.1 Beta 1 thread in the Redmine forum.
