    We are still unsure of whether we will upgrade or have a new Moodle 2 set-up and import the courses. Awaiting Moodle 2.1.
    We originally wanted to only start new in Moodle 2 or upgrade from 1.9. Now staff can develop Moodle 2 version.
  • 38. Things to consider
    Unless going for a general upgrade – make sure LOTS of support is in place.
    Have plenty of time! We started back in January but still wish we had longer!! (But practically – we couldn’t have started much with teachers before May).
  • 39. Questions?
    Are any of you planning to upgrade to Moodle 2 this September?
