Moodle 2.3 is available

In the last hour Moodle 2.3 came out of beta and was released. Based on feedback from recent training and demo sessions – many will be shifting their focus to upgrade to 2.3 this summer instead of Moodle 2.2. Well done all contributors to it.

I have done some prior posts on some of the features:

There are some changes to requirements:

  • Moodle 2.2 or later (if upgrading from earlier versions, you must upgrade to 2.2 as a first step)
  • MySQL needs to be MySQL 5.1.33 now (Moodle 2.2 and 2.1 needed 5.0.25)
  • Browser changes : IE8 required (was IE7 for 2.2), Chrome 11 (was Chrome 4 for 2.2), Safari 5 (was Safari 3 for 2.2), Firefox 4 (was FF 3 for 2.2)

Some other points to note

  • Course export to IMS CC standard
  • Workshop automatic phase switching
  • New SCORM report
  • Conditional access to Course Sections (not just resources/activities but now course sections too)
  • In response to some changes from Google, Moodle now uses the more secure method to connect for Google Docs and Picasa which requires admins to register their site with Google. http://docs.moodle.org/23/en/Google_OAuth_2.0_setup
