Moodle 4 Upgrade Summer 2023 !

By Pamela Clarke, on 13 October 2023

No doubt you have read the updates, blogs and twitter, Yes Moodle has changed !

Moodle 4 is a revamped user interface and experience, and we are assured that it provides a more modern and significantly cleaner user experience for the user, with updated technology, design, navigation and layout.

What does this mean for reading lists you may ask yourself ?   Luckily nothing too significant, although the layout for the Library Resources block, and the embedding (LTI) tool is slightly different on the new upgrade.

The familiar Library Resources block is hidden in a drawer ! To reveal the block, open the drawer. We have further instructions on our Teaching and Learning webpages  that explain how to add the block (if not already added), and how to configure the block. 

The popular embedding tool has now been updated to LTI.1.3 and is available from the  “Add an activity or resource” palette.

Full details of how to use both the Library Resources block and the embed tool are available from our Teaching and Learning webpages, and videos will also soon be available.

For more information on the upgrade and training available please see an earlier blog from the the Digital Education Team. 

There is also further information on the UCL Moodle staff guide
