If you’re still waiting to make the jump, here’s a resource that you might use to convince yourself, convince your administrators or to put students at ease. “What’s new in Moodle 2” is a resource created by the Moodlers at Florida International University (http://fiu.edu/) and it has a great overview (in easy to read text with graphics). It’s a wonderful primer for any 1.9 die-hard or non-Moodler waiting to make the switch.
