New Features in Moodle 4.0

Moodle, the free, open source education platform, is introducing some key improvements in Moodle 4.0 version. A dedicated My Courses page will allow users to view their courses and completion details at a glance while a new Course Index on the course page will make it easier for both students and educators to find activities and resources. The collapsible and expandable component will help learners understand the course structure in depth and keep their progression on track. It will also mean that they will need to scroll a lot less to navigate through the course, providing quick access to each section and activity. Educators will find it particularly powerful as they can use it to drag and reposition activities (and even whole sections) within a course. Moodle’s activity icons have been redesigned and standardised in a clean, colourful palette to help users develop a quick visual reference for particular activity types.
