Progress Bar block which has got maximum number of votes for this years project development cycle in the Moodle Users Association voting, has been updated to a new version with new presentation options like squeeze, scroll and swipe.

In a recent update to the most popular block plugin for Moodle, Michael de Raadt, the Maintainer of Progress Bar block and Research Director at Moodle HQ has posted about the changes in the new version of the block.

Now you can display the bar in 3 different ways:

  • Squeezed into one horizontal bar
  • Scrolling sideways to show overflowing bar segments
  • Wrapping to show all bar segments on multiple lines

Which means that your users will get a much better user experience in your course.
