The table below outlines the BCLN development that will be completed this summer. Release dates may be updated on this site, but these are our best estimations at this time. In the mean time, BCLN member teachers can preview the coming masters at any time on the BCLN site.

Preparation notes:

  • the courses will be released as Moodle version Moodle 2.9+ (Build: 20150528)
  • math and science courses use WIRIS, so ensure you have plugin installed
  • if you wish your courses to have the Grid format (available), ensure you have the grid plugin installed BEFORE restoring the courses.
  • make ALL sure your teachers subscribe to the corresponding forums in the "Discussion area" so they keep up-to-date with any fixes or updates for their course(s).  It helps us ALL.
