WolfWare News: March/April 2016

As part of DELTA’s ongoing efforts to keep you informed, here’s the latest WolfWare News to help you make the most effective use of Moodle and other WolfWare tools in your courses.

Moodle Upgrade

  • Our annual upgrade is complete and Moodle 3.0 is available for you to begin preparing Summer and Fall courses. [The Moodle Projects & Outreach servers were updated to Moodle 3.0 on May 10th.]
  • Our launch of Moodle 3.0 includes significant updates to NC State’s course themes, giving courses a more up-to-date appearance while maintaining responsiveness to a variety of displays and devices. In addition, we are adding support for the official “Moodle Mobile” app, which is available for iOS, Android, and Windows devices. Moodle 3.0 also includes several new quiz question types, an internal messaging system, and several other new features.
  • You can create a space for your Summer or Fall course by logging in at https://wolfware.ncsu.edu. For full instructions on how to create a Moodle space, see https://delta.ncsu.edu/knowledgebase/how-do-i-create-a-moodle-space-for-a-class/.

    Is Moodle Mobile support available for Moodle Projects now? I am not able to login from the app at this time. If support is not available yet, when will this support be available?

      Thank you for checking! Because of a configuration error, the Moodle Mobile app was not working correctly with our project and outreach server. We have fixed the error and it appears to be working correctly now. Please contact learntech@ncsu.edu if you have any additional trouble, we’ll be happy to help!
