2020 Course 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 3.8.3+ (Build: 20200529).  Suggest an update to at least this version.
  • Like last year, 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.

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, Toni Kormish, Jodie Reeder, Bruce Merz, Billy Laurzon, Ed Seidel, Fiona Graham, Joe Jamison, Claire Thompson, Tami Nicholson, James Corkin, Margo Porro, Rachel Neufeld, Robert French, Sean Roarty, Sandy Hoffmann, Lara Zalinko, Kelly Tjorhom, Jim Feldes, Riley Westbrook, Kyle Berthaudin, Cassandra Sawatzky, Derek Henderson, Colin Bernard, Brittany Miller, Stewart Savard, David Wees, Lorn Kennedy, Malley Richardson, Carla Peters, Amanda Kong, Crystal Findlay, Garrison Bergen, Janek Kuchmistrz, Jennifer Wong, Mark Gilbert, Parker Cowen, Sol Thiessen, Sally Wallick, Shaun Agostinho, and Teresa Jackson.

Development Survey & Conference

by Brent Sawatzky -

As part of our regular WCLN development cycle, we're asking where you would like us to focus our efforts.

survey

We'll be reviewing and discussing the survey results at the upcoming DL Conference (online version).

canelearn

For sites starting to prepare for the 2020/21 school year, you should plan for a spring/summer update to Moodle version 3.8.2+ (or newer) as that'll match the 2020 WCLN summer course releases.
