New Features in Nexus Update

Moodle update:

Union College updated from Moodle 3.4 to Moodle 3.6 over the summer of 2019.  Here are some exciting new features:

Sharing Cart

The Sharing Cart is a block for duplicating course items into a personal library and an easy way to move those Moodle resources and activities between multiple courses on your site. 

Tiles format

Tiles displays topics in a grid rather than as a list. This user friendly format has built in transition animations and adapts to different screen sizes and orientations.  Within each tile, activities can also be set to display as "sub-tiles".

Record assignment feedback

Media and other file uploads are now permitted when grading assignments, meaning teachers can record their feedback and/or include supporting images or other files.  

Quiz improvements

The Drag and drop markers question type is easier to edit, and the Quiz statistics report has improved usability through statistic reports and quiz structure analysis.

Directly record sound and video

New buttons in the Atto editor allow you to record directly into Moodle.

Message your groups

Enable group messaging when setting up groups and from the new messaging interface, start group conversations. Find more information on messaging here.

If you are having difficulty or you have unanswered questions, please contact the Help Desk through the ITS Service Catalog or call (518) 388-6400.
