Moodle has been upgraded to version 3.5 - what do you guys think about the new design? Also, to access it head here, not to the old Moodle link here as that is no longer how you access Moodle.

It doesn't seem like we can choose which units to display anymore?

If we truly can't that's a bit irritating - I'd much rather have units I'll actually access visible on the first page, rather than science transition etc.

In the left-hand corner I think they're there, but other than that they should appear in all in progress. Tbh I can see my units easier, but I get what you mean as I can't hide any units either.

First look isn't great tbh but will probably just have to get used to it  :-\

RIP if we can't remove units from the front page - previously I just hid everything except the actual units I was studying that semester.

Can't access it as I'm not a student, but how considerable is the change to Moodle?

Internally, the system is the same, but externally it's like a whole different feel. I'll put a picture up here to show you what it looks like now, but it's definitely very different compared to the old system when you first look at it.

EDIT: Old is here and new is here

Now if only they updated the horrid table-layout WES style, that'd definitely assist with bringing the feel of a world class university into the 21st century. :)

@Sine give this a shot on Chrome if you want a better Moodle experience, a friend of mine designed the extension and it's absolutely gold

will do - just watched through the video and it looks great.

I guess they are trying to make moodle look a bit more modern but it is doing way too much on a single page so it makes everything look really messy. The minimalist display of the old moodle was definitely a bonus.

LOVE being able to select the learning capture option for lectures so that you can schedule clashes w/ your labs & tutes.

Thanks Monash

The shuttle bus seems equally busy atm as it is during semester, which I've found a bit surprising.

There's still summer semester units running now. Also, today is exam viewing day for a lot of people (me included), so people are getting in early for that.
