Nominations open for Moodle Users Association committee members @moodleassocIn a recent announcement in Moodle Users Association forums, Nick Thompson – Chairman of the MUA committee, posted about the winning project after a close to the voting cycle for multiple projects. The top 5 voted projects are:

  1. My course – dashboard – 23563

This project suggest a review/revamp of the “old” My course overview on the Dashboard pages in order to create a better and more visual overview for students on the course progress.

The project was proposed by Gemma Lesterhuis and the detailed documentation for the project is located in this google docs.

I am closely watching the progress of the My Course Dashboard project and eagerly waiting for its inclusion in Moodle 3.2.
