2018 Course Release Plans

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

Preparation notes:

  • Aug 15th = release date for 2018 courses.
  • courses will be released as Moodle version 3.4+ (Build: 20171208)
  • if you wish to use WIRIS for students showing work, your district will need to license WIRIS.
  • for simply seeing the equations in the database, no WIRIS license is required.
  • 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.
