The Collaborative Liberal Arts Moodle Project (CLAMP), a consortium of Moodle using colleges has released a new report and has updated their stance on Moodle 2.x use in production.  Originally CLAMP declared that Moodle 2.x was not ready for production for its member institutions.

From the report,

After extensive review, CLAMP is pleased to recommend the use of Moodle 2.x for the 2012-13 academic year. In our initial report on Moodle 2.0, CLAMP’s member schools found a number
of major issues with the 2.x iteration of the open source learning management system. While some reservations remain, we find that most of these issues have been addressed in the current Moodle 2.x releases.

Our recommendation is that colleges use Moodle 2.3 for Fall 2012. Although its late June release date may make this difficult for some colleges, the enhancements to Moodle 2.3 are compelling.

Enhancements in Moodle 2.3 (releasing next week) include file interface fixes, drag and drop, revamped assignment module and more.  To read the full report and to check out the Liberal Arts Edition of Moodle 2.x (which includes more modules and administrative functionality go to http://www.clamp-it.org/2012/06/moodle-2-x-status-report-june-2012/
