    Is there a lightbox gallery-esque plugin in 2.0?

    The ones I can see that are missing that we need as it stands are...

    - Microsoft Live@Edu plugin (will see what they say when I go to Reading on Friday on that one)
    - PLP block (being rewritten for 2.0 at some point)
    - Lightbox Gallery
    - Hot Potatoes (not so bad as we don't use it much and I want to get people onto Xerte instead )
    - Course Menu (built into 2.0 menu iirc)

    I'm not rushing to get 2.0 on as we've been training in 1.9 since September so won't rock the boat until at least the summer. Doesn't stop me having a play on a beta server and getting everything ready though

    Considering the weather, i think i'll stick to my earlier decision and not upgrade to moodle 2..
    Too many issues to think about at a time when it's likely to get its most use!

    Moodle is so easy to install that Im surprised that everyone doesnt just do a fresh install of moodle2 to run in parrallel with your existing install. Themes will be a problem, as will any third party modules or blocks as the database layer has changed quite a bit.

    As long as your courses dont rely on the third party blocks (and most dont - the blocks just add bells and whistles), then just take a backup of your course and install restore it on 2.0
    Edit - scratch that, just tried it on my test server - Moodle 2.0 tells me "Moodle 2 currently doesn't support restoring Moodle 1.x backups. A temporary work around to this is to restore your Moodle 1.x backup onto a Moodle 1.9 site, and then upgrade it to Moodle 2. Once the upgrade is complete you will be able to make new backups which will be restorable on other Moodle 2.0 sites."

    I like the different layout and the less restrained layout but the extra teaching and learning tools are the real killer. Amongst these are the conditional activities where an enrolled student has to complete an activity successfully before they can attempt the new one - so getting a certain mark on a test before doing the next bit etc.

    Well worth it, IMHO
