The Collaborative Liberal Arts Moodle Project has released its newest version of its Liberal Arts Edition (LAE) of Moodle addons as a package for anyone to download. This distribution of Moodle includes several non-core features which help to simplify grading and adds a host of useful tools.
In this release you can look forward to two new activities
- Anonymous forums
- Simple file upload
And two admin/teacher tools:
- The updated CLAMP Grader Report
- Assignment Zip
LAE also comes with TinyMCE as an alternative to HTMLarea (so Chrome and other modern browsers are supported; however Firefox is still recommended by CLAMP).
You can read more about the CLAMP flavor of Moodle at their website http://www.clamp-it.org. You’ll also find a complete download of this Moodle version and a list of all non-core features included.
