In order to update the functions and features of the new version of Moodle to meet learning and teaching needs, an upgrade from version 3.5 to 3.9 will be conducted from 12:01am on 31 Jul (Sat) to 6:00pm on 2 Aug 2021 (Mon). During the upgrade, course content will be converted and transferred to the new platform. Moodle version 3.9 is a Long Term Support (LTS) release with more support from Moodle.org in terms of bug fixes while version 3.5 will no longer be supported for security bug fixes from May 2021. Moving to this LTS release will provide greater stability in the coming few years. The new version is also more friendly to mobile devices. For the new features of Moodle 3.9, please visit https://moodle.eduhk.hk/course/view.php?id=45086. Staff using Moodle to deliver courses might want to know more about the new functions and attend Moodle staff workshops offered by LTTC, if needed. Please see http://www.lttc.eduhk.hk/?p=2892 for details.
Please contact Mr. Rocky Yip (x6552) of OCIO for technical enquiries and Mr. Wilson Cheng (x7043) of LTTC for user support enquiries.
