The 'Getting Started with Moodle' course has been updated in light of the Moodle 4.2 upgrade. Additionally, we are pleased to introduce the 'Getting Started with Lecturecast (Echo360)' course.
These two self-paced courses cover the basics of using Moodle and Lecturecast (Echo360). They are aimed at UCL staff who are new to Moodle and Lecturecast as well as those wishing to brush up on their knowledge.
Moodle upgrade to Moodle 4.2
We have scheduled the much-anticipated upgrade to Moodle 4 for Thursday, 27th July 2023.
- Once the upgrade is complete, you will be able to log back in and explore the new-look Moodle. Take some time to navigate the upgraded system and familiarise yourself with its new functionalities.
- The self-paced course ‘ Moving to Moodle 4.2 ‘ is available to guide you through the transition. We highly recommend going through this course if you need help adjusting to the new system.
- You can still visit our Moodle 4.2 Demo.Preview Test Instance resources.
- Support wiki pages for students and staff will progressively be updated to Moodle version 4 from Wednesday 26th July through to the day of the upgrade on Thursday 27th July.
