During the week commencing 04/04/22, UCL Moodle will be upgraded to version 3.11. With this upgrade, there are number of key changes designed to enhance the user experience for both staff and students. This upgrade will include features from Moodle 3.10 and 3.11
The key new feature is the introduction of Turnitin functionality for the following activities:
- Moodle quizzes- for Essay Type Questions
- Moodle forums
- Moodle Workshop
Each of the activities will allow students to make submissions which will be checked against the Turnitin database and will generate a similarity score. These activities will behave in a similar way to a Moodle assignment with Turnitin integration.
For guidance on how to set one of these activities up on your Moodle course, please see our online guides:
There are also several smaller changes coming, with changes most noticeable to students. Course completion will be enhanced, and will include:
- Activity dates and completion conditions being shown at the top of the activity page
- Manual marking option for students
- Additional display settings (or staff)
- Improved activity completion reports
