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.
