WCLN News!

2021 Summer Release Plan

by Brent Sawatzky -

The table below outlines the WCLN development and schedule goals.

Preparation notes:

  • Courses will be released as Moodle version Moodle 3.10.2+ (Build: 20210324).  Suggestion = update to at least this version.
  • For simply seeing the equations in the courses, load the WIRIS filter (free).
  • If you wish to use WIRIS for students showing work, your district will need to license WIRIS (see Partners).
  • If you wish your courses to have the Grid format on your site, ensure you have the grid plugin installed BEFORE restoring the courses.
  • Update courses wherever possible to benefit from updates in assignments, question databases, rubrics, etc....
  • 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.
  • Note the changes that will impact old math courses this summer (BCLN server gone and CC doing self-hosting).

A HUGE thank you to all of your dedicated peers who are working hard to make all this happen for us:  Barb Boonstra, Nick Smith, Kari Daniels, Clint Surrey, Mike Richardson, Francis Tsen, Rollie Comeau, Darrol Colgur, Jodie Reeder, Bruce Merz, Ed Seidel, Fiona Graham, James Corkin, Margo Porro, Rachel Neufeld, Robert French, Sean Roarty, Sandy Hoffmann, Lara Zalinko, Kelly Tjorhom, Jim Feldes, Riley Westbrook, Kyle Berthaudin, Colin Bernard, Brittany Miller, Guy Cooper, Lorn Kennedy, Malley Richardson, Patti Allan, Amanda Kong, Mark Gilbert, Parker Cowen, Sol Thiessen, Mori Gilbert, Anne Cairns, Anurita Dhiman, Ashley Bennett, Beverly Bastness, Cole Fischer, Darla Faye, Mark Jensen, Guroor Chawla, Morag Wagner, Rhea Virk, Paula Evoy, Teresa Jackson, Todd Diakow, and Sebastian Csizmazia.
