2019 Summer Update Plans

The table below outlines the WCLN development that we plan to have completed this summer.

Preparation notes:

  • Aug 1-15th = release period for 2019 courses.
  • Courses will be released as Moodle version 3.6.2+ (Build: 20190118).  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, Jodie Reeder, Bruce Merz, Billy Laurzon, Ed Seidel, Fiona Graham, Joe Jamison, Claire Thompson, Craig Simmons, Tami Nicholson, James Corkin, Margo Porro, Rachel Neufeld, Robert French, Thomas Diesch, Sophia Yu, Sean Roarty, Sandy Hoffmann, Lara Zalinko, Kelly Tjorhom, Pam Parenty, Jim Feldes, Riley Westbrook, Kyle Berthaudin, Cassandra Sawatzky, Derek Henderson, Colin Bernard, Brittany Miller, & Parsa Rajabi.
