Revision as of 12:21, 19 July 2011

In 2006 I started contributing to MoodleDocs as a way to learn the software. I stepped intense editing in July 2010 because of additional work and family commitments. Looks like I am back with the same motivation.

This summer (July-Aug 2011), I was given the task to build a few webservers for our internal LAN (intranet).

Our use of the application is simple. We do tests, have people download pdfs and fill out questionnaires. I decided that I might as well install 2.1. Our previous servers were 1.5.x Moodles :) We upgraded a 1.5 Moodle server to 1.9 last summer this is a bit more ambitious.

I will be adding a custom language (a version of AmericanSpeak), building 50 exams, 30 questionnaires and uploading 100 or so PDF files as resources. Then I will do the same thing x3 again and then x2 again and perhaps again.
