What's New in Moodle: Fall 2017 Update

While many of the changes may go unnoticed, users will find several changes and new features. We’ve highlighted some of them below.

    Access to the Gradebook

    Faculty can view the course gradebook using Gradebook Setup in the Administration block. From there, use the View tab to see your Grader Report.

    Students can view it using the My courses menu in the Navigation block

    “Switch role to …”

    The switch role function is now accessed through the user menu. Click on your profile picture in the top right of the Moodle screen and select “Switch role to…”.

    Add new Sections/Topics to your course.

    It’s easier than ever! Turn Editing On, scroll to the bottom of the course, click Add Topics (or Sections), and choose how many new sections you’d like.

    Delete topics/sections

    You can now do this by clicking on the Edit button for that section and choose Delete Topic (or Section). But be aware that deleting sections will delete everything in that section, so be sure to move things if necessary. Moodle will remind you of this when you try to delete a topic with items.
