New features in RWTHmoodle with update to Moodle version 3.11

by Koser, Valentin -
On August 25, RWTHmoodle was updated to version 3.11. This update will bring some new visual and functional features for users: Until now, checkboxes were displayed to the right of the activities. If checkboxes were marked here, the activities were considered completed. After the update, activity completions are now highlighted more clearly in color and text immediately below the activities. Completion conditions that are required for the successful completion of an activity (e.g. a grade) can now also be displayed below the activity on the course page. Quizzes as well offer more transparency: from now on students are informed of the grade to pass the test even before it begins. Managers additionally have the possibility to upload and restore course backup files to RWTHmoodle on their own. While up to now only the system administration was able to do this, now the lecturers can manage their courses even more easily themselves. More information about the new features can be found here.
