The table below outlines the BCLN development that we expect to have completed this summer.

Preparation notes:

  • Aug 15th = release date for 2017 courses.
  • courses will be released as Moodle version Moodle 3.2.1+ (Build: 20170209)
  • math and science courses use WIRIS, so ensure you have plugin installed
  • if you wish your courses to have the Grid format on your site, ensure you have the grid plugin installed BEFORE restoring the courses.
  • make sure ALL of 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.
