Version 2.2 of the Moodle e-learning platform released

Moodle founder, Martin Dougiamas, has announced the release of version 2.2 of his open source e-learning platform. Short for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment, Moodle is a cross-platform course management system (CMS) – also known as a virtual learning environment (VLE) or learning management system (LMS) – whose goal is to provide educators with tools for managing and promoting learning for their students.

Moodle 2.2 is a major update that includes a new advanced grading methods subsystem. The first advanced grading plug-in is, the developers say, a "long-requested feature": support for Rubrics. These are used for criteria-based assessment, but only currently work for assignments; they will be extended across all modules in a later release.

More details about the 2.2 update, including a full list of improvements, can be found in the release notes.
Moodle 2.2 is available to download for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux from the project's site; source code is licensed under the GPLv3.
