Scheduled: Upgrade Moodle to v3.2

On Wednesday, 21 December 2016 between 8:00am and 10:00am, Information Systems will be upgrading our Moodle system to version 3.2.

Moodle will be unavailable during the upgrade. No other systems will be affected.

This release brings new features and fixes. Highlights of the new features include:

  • Assignment overrides
  • Turnitin updates/improvements – we will also be setting the default for new assignments to “Allow Submissions after the Due Date”.
  • General fixes and improvements.
  • A new, updated and simplified theme called “Boost”.  This theme also improves how notifications and messages appear.  The intent of the theme is for Moodle to look the same across all devices (computer, tablet, and mobile) and while using the Moodle app.  Please note: We will not be rolling this out as the default theme at this time since we still need to customize it and test the new theme with all of the Moodle plug-ins that we have installed.

For more details about Moodle 3.2 please refer to the new features tour or the version release notes.  There are also a series of videos that describe new version 3.2 features.

Please contact the Helpdesk with questions or comments: or 540 432 4357 (x4357 on the Harrisonburg campus).

Update: The upgrade was completed successfully at 9:00am.

Duration: 1 hour
