Take-away messages

  1. Moodle 2.0 is pretty much ready to go - it offers improved security and involves major rewrites of significant functionality e.g., Files system and Messaging, new features such as better capacity for bringing in external social media
  2. University of Canberra, Australian National University, and CIT, the three major tertiary providers in the ACT, are now all on Moodle (1.9) - which is facilitating valuable cross-institutional collaboration - they will all be migrating to v2 in 2011.
  3. The Australian Government announced that public sector information was to have a default creative commons attribution license.
