    How are you finding Moodle 2.0

    I have been playing for a while with Moodle 2.0.
    I have upgraded a copy of our 1.9 installation with no problems.
    I have also created a brand new install as a demo fro some Primary school in our region who might be looking for an alternative.

    After all the playing I can't find any "features" that I can sell to staff.

    Can anyone think of any selling points?

    Go down the release notes and see what works for you?

    Moodle 2.0 release notes - MoodleDocs

    Thanks Edu-IT. I have had a look round moodle.org but I also wondered how edugeekers are finding it.

    I am finding it awesome - repositories make it so much easier to handle files...I appreciate it maybe a technical selling point but still a valid one. The best selling point is still of course that it is free!

    seriously?!
    The repositories are fantastic - mount your shared drives, no more uploading single files.
    Google docs integration as a file repository, dropbox etc for portfolios
    - conditional activities, ie students can only progress once they reach a criteria, is a really sought after feature from our staff as it can enable individual learning plans

    You couldn't expand on the mount shared drives bit could you?
    Does this mean a moodle user could browse a resource folder on one of our local, non moodle running, servers?

    I'm not at the moment as I just couldn't bring myself to inflict the pain of anything, however small, changing for staff. Over the summer I will probably upgrade & I think it will solve a large portion of our problems but I can imagine the up roar if I did it mid term.

    Yes, you would have to mount the filesystem onto the moodle server.
