Coming soon: better user experience in MyCourses
On June 12, 2023, MyCourses will be updated to a new Moodle version. Moodle 4.1 offers a more user-friendly platform for teachers and students, with new features and improvements that make it easier to create engaging and effective learning experiences for students.
The new interface makes it easier to navigate and find the features you need. Moodle 4.1 includes several new course editing features, including a drag-and-drop interface for organizing content and activities and improved options for setting up assignments and quizzes. It will have contextual navigation and editing and improvements in the question bank.
The course index will contain all the resources and activities on the left side column. This enables smooth moving between course sections. With the new drag-and-drop function, it is easier for teachers to reorganize the course content. With a time-based structure and with activity completion, your students can easily follow the timeline and their progress on the course. Activity completion shows on the course index with grey/green dots. This is a good “to-do list” for your students.
New workspaces for the next academic year will be created in June. Do you wish to have a look at the new version before the update? Visit mycourses-test.aalto.fi to see the changes. Aalto OpenLearning learning environment is already using Moodle 4.1.
