Demo course, Moodle 2.3

What fun to convert a course from 1.9 to 2.3 without too many wrinkles.  To play with new features of Moodle (blocks!).  And to create an image interface to link to each unit (something I've wanted to do for ages). 

Many thanks to Russ Willis of GlobalClassroom for helping me work out the Moodle 2.3 surprises.  


  1. Hi Fran,
    Thanks for posting the link to your demo course; lots of wonderful content and it looks great! My school district is currently in the process of switching over from Moodle 1.9 to 2.3 -- there is definitely a lot to learn!

  2. Thanks! Most things came over from 1.9, but not all the images, and none of the blocks - but blocks work differently in 2.3, so I guess that makes sense.

    Now I'm trying to figure out how to use the Book module, which is in 2.3 - lots of potential for making content more like a webpage and less like the scroll of death.
