Gavin Henrick has pulled together 3 (three) top 10 lists for why to move from Moodle 1.9 to 2.0. The three presentations are available at his blog and the each already has a voice over presentation video available on Youtube. Each presentation highlights another set of new/changed Moodle features and discusses (quickly) how they impact the online classroom. From blocks to repositories to comments to mobile apps…many of the cool new tools are covered and highlighted.
