Moodle Mobile App is upgraded to a new version 3.1.0 to complement the advanced features available  in the Moodle 3.1 version which was just released yesterday. The new breed of the Moodle Mobile App is packed with a whole bunch of new features which will improve the user experience through the mobile app.

In a recent announcement, Juan Leyva – Developer of the official Moodle Mobile App announced about the release of the new version of the mobile app. The app allows the users to attempt the quizzes while on the go. Additionally, if the students are having internet problems, then you can also allow them to download the quiz and attempt it offline by using the new Offline attempts access rule plugin.

If you are going to use the Competencies in Moodle 3.1, then you can allow your students to check out their learning plans and teachers will be able to view the competencies of their students.

The brief list of new features available in the new version are:

  • Quizzes – users can attempt quizzes (requires Moodle 3.1 or Moodle 2.6 onwards with the Moodle Mobile additional features plugin installed)
  • Competencies – users can browse their learning plans and teachers can view the competencies of students in their course
  • Remote add-ons – support for mobile app versions of plugins

Check out the complete list of fixed issues, new features and improvements in Moodle Mobile 3.1.0 in the release notes here. You can download the official Moodle Mobile app for Android devices here and for iOS devices here.

I believe that this new version of the app will be helpful in improving the overall user experience of Mobile users.
