Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 1.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Features.

This page requires updating for Moodle 2.0. Please do so and remove this template when finished.


The Features page is more or less always marked for update. If there is a particular feature that needs more work, please list it here with a signature date stamp at the end.

nesting of sub-items

Everyone- I was wondering if maybe this page should not start to have some nesting. For example, under resource, we have a number of items. Some are more "sub-items" where you might want to note more details. For example:

  • File Management
    • Folders: Create, Rename, Move, Zip, Unzip and delete
    • Files:Create, Rename, Move, Zip, Unzip, upload, download, copy, and delete

This runs the risk of the page getting much longer, but at some point it might be useful to have a comprehensive list. I bring this up because I just read a comparison between moodle, webCT and BB, and when things are side by side (like the forum/discussion board) it's impossible to compare, because each is written by someone else with differing terms. If there exists a laundry list of all possible settings/options, then it will always appear favorable with any comparisons, and each item could eventually link to clarification on that item...

Hi d.i., thanks for your offer to improve the Features page - please go ahead! It would be helpful if the page could be updated to include Moodle 1.5 features too... --Helen Foster 04:51, 30 January 2006 (WST)..

Modules organization

The modules database has many entries, but it is hard to find anything for a specific use. It is not apparent if searching the database is returning relevant results. I think lists organized by categories would be helpful, or for every module to have an entry in subcategories of Category:Contributed code. As it is, it is hard to tell that Moodle has tools other than the paged-interface lessons, some quizzes, and forum tools. -- Scot Wilcoxon 12:19, 16 June 2008 (CDT)

Wiki module description

There should be a better description of the "Wiki module", particularly if it is different from the MediaWiki tool which is being used for this Moodle Docs wiki. What kinds of access controls exist? Are Category classifications supported? -- Scot Wilcoxon 12:29, 16 June 2008 (CDT)
