I just updated to the latest version of Moodle 2.3 and it is a much welcomed update. The user improvements are a huge step in the right direction. I can’t get over how nice drag and drop uploading is. Teachers will now be able to setup resources with ease!! It is still working really nice with our Etherpad plugin as well as Mahara.
There is also word that we may be better utilizing Mahara with teachers by using it to collect and create a PD profile. Basically a journal and files that they can keep adding information to as they attend training. This would be required by all teachers. Not sure how it might pan out as it is basically just a discussion point right now.
