Change Log – 2017-2018

For last year’s change log, visit our Change Log – 2016-2017 page.

Starting in October 2016, we began implementing Moodle updates on a rolling basis. Non-breaking changes are now implemented as soon as they are completed, allowing us to bring the best version of Moodle to you as soon as we can. This page tracks changes for the 2017-2018 Academic Year.

September 13, 2017 – v3.2-ui14

  • Upgraded to weekly stable release of Moodle 3.2.5
  • Upgraded plug-ins:
    • Pearson MyLab & Mastering
    • Group Choice
    • Blackboard Collaborate Ultra
    • Certificate (custom)
    • Moodle2Word
    • Atto styles and Word import
  • Fixed display bug of Grade Items when using Single View to display a student’s grades
  • Added the ability to use spaces in tab names on the “MyMoodle page”
  • Fixed display bug with “Cancel” button when embedding using Illinois Media Space
  • Fixed display bug on the “Notifications” page that resulted in inconsistencies when hovering

August 30, 2017 – v3.2-ui13

  • Enabled “Non-teaching editor” role
    • Non-teaching editors can edit almost any page, as well as the Gradebook Setup, but cannot see enrolled users, grades, or forum posts. This role can be used by undergraduates who are helping to prepare course sites or by anyone who would like to add an editor to their course site who cannot see grades.
  • Enabled Recording Downloads for Blackboard Collaborate Ultra
    • Note that these cannot be turned off on a per-video basis. Ultimately, we determined that enabling the recordings globally was preferable to keeping all recordings disabled, since there is no per-video or per-course option.
