Only Office and SwitchDrive

Switch are offering Google doc like services through their SwitchDrive service.

What this means is that you can now work collaboratively on documents in more or less the same way as you do with Google docs, just with the added security of knowing that only you and your collaborators know what is going on.

The service uses OnlyOffice, a tool that is based essentially on Open Office or Libra Office.

Moodle and MS Office 365

Microsoft have developed an entire suite of tools aimed at giving users a greater deal of flexibility when working with Moodle.

The tools include a calendar sync function, submission of assignments undertaken using Onenote, intergration of MS Teams and much more.

We are currently looking to evaluate the usefulness of these tools and also their reliability on the test platform.

Moodle Users Association

The Moodle Users Association or MUA is a group of people who get together to help develop, mold, fashion and influence the next generation of Moodle.

There are different levels of membership from individual users through to Institutions who want to have a greater say in the develop process.

Moodle 3.7 is here.

Moodle 3.7 has been launched. This means that our test platform is now running the latest version to test plugin compatibility and to ensure that we have stability in the system. At the same time the development server is running the next Moodle version Moodle 3.8.

The developers in Australia have already unveiled Moodle 3.9 which will be launched to us in the Spring of 2020.
