New Features and Fixes for January 2014 Term

In December 2013, the Office of Integrated Technologies completed the semi-annual upgrade to Moodlerooms, the college's new learning management system. The upgrade includes features that are part of the core Moodle 2.5.3 release and Joule, Moodleroom’s proprietary system.

Two improvements have been implemented to help users save their work before the system's automatic 90 minute time limit that results in lost work when there is no user activity when using the HTML editor, messaging, quickmail, grading or taking quizzes.

  • New System Timeout Warning: OIT will implement an on-screen message to Moodlerooms users that will appear ten minutes before the automatic 90 minute time limit. The message reminds users to save their work and reload the web page in which they are working. It also provides step-by-step instructions for saving written work and quizzes. This notification was developed by OIT and is the direct result of user feedback obtained through support tickets and knowledge sharing areas.
  • Auto-save for Quizzes: As part of the Moodle 2.5.3 release, student work on each quiz will be automatically saved after 5 minutes.

For a complete list of system changes in the December 2013 Moodlerooms release can be found in this knowledge base article in the Technology Help Desk and Support Services web site.
