Upon discussion with different faculties and departments in Information and Education Technology Committee (IETC) meeting, the Production Site of UMMoodle (https://ummoodle.umac.mo) was suggested to be upgraded from Moodle version 2.9 to 3.2 in the coming academic year. The new version of Moodle is a new generation with great enhancement and many new features. Some of them are listed below:

  • Better mobile support
  • Support Competencies-Based Education (CBE)
  • Course editing improvement
  • Step-by-step user tours
  • New question types in Quiz
  • Smoother assignment grading
  • Enhancements to most activities

In order to let our users have more time to be familiar with the new features and new interface, the upgrade of Production Site will be done earlier in July. All active courses, which have access records in recent 4 years (1 July, 2013 ~ now), will be automatically migrated. However, a copy of all data will be kept in Legacy Site (https://ummoodle2.umac.mo) so that users can retrieve their old contents in case necessary.

Meanwhile, ICTO will also upgrade Community (https://community.umac.mo) to Moodle version 3.2 and upgrade ePortfolio (https://eportfolio.umac.mo) to the latest stable version 17.
