Moodle 4 is Here!

Over the summer, ITS upgraded Swarthmore’s Moodle site to version 4. While the site will look familiar, you’ll notice a refreshing change in the course organization and menu structure.

New features

  • Simpler course index navigation
  • Timed assignments (useful for timed take-home exams)
  • Bulk duplicate, move, or delete course items
  • Improved edit button
  • Clearer gradebook views and new grade summary report
  • Class roster report with student photos
