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).
