What's new (10/2022)
Here we provide information about new features in Moodle that result from version updates or have been added. The information concerns teachers and course owners (role “Teacher”).
New as of 10/2022
Matriculation number in Moodle
The matriculation number is now synchronized in Moodle and (only for the role “Teacher”) displayed in the attendance list.
With the Moodle extension “attendance” (plugin mod_attendance) can be used to document student attendance. If configured accordingly, students can record their attendance themselves. Teachers can export attendance lists. Students can display an overview of their own attendance.
The extension will be used on a trial basis for now, the Moodle team is looking forward to your feedback!
Moodle includes (since version 3.11) the Brickfield Accessibility Starter Toolkit. Instructors can use this analysis function if they wish and receive tips on how to optimize their own course.
