Moodle Updates

Theme Development

Following consultation with staff and students we worked over the summer, with the help of an external agency, to develop and enhance the Moodle appearance (theme). The aim was to provide a fresher more contemporary look for our popular and well-used VLE. This update took place on 13th September and now this is being fine-tuned ready for the start of term. Find out more about how the new theme here: Moodle Theme Enhancement

Accessibility

We have also added a new accessibility tool to Moodle in time for the new academic year. This tool (BlackBoard AllyLink opens in a new window) will help to provide more support and guidance for Moodle editors related to improving the accessibility of content and resources as well as providing options for students to download content in more accessible format options.

We also expect the new theme will bring further accessibility options such as easier font size and contrast switching options.

Annual Upgrade

Warwick's central Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) Moodle underwent an annual upgrade on Tuesday July 12th from version 3.10 to version 3.11. This was part of our routine annual development activity, the overall core functionality and way that you interact with any content has not changed significantly.
