DigiCampus was transferred on January 4-5th from CSC’s Rahti environment to Mediamaisteri’s maintenance. We believe that with this transfer, we have got rid of the downtimes that plagued DigiCampus in late 2020. During the maintenance downtime, Moodle was also upgraded from version 3.8 to 3.9. With the new version, the following functional improvements have been introduced to the learning environment, especially for teachers:
- Improvements to adding activities. The Add an activity or resource menu has been redesigned into a grid where you can easily mark your favorite activities. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVNJJfjjwDQ&list=PLxcO_MFWQBDerI0lZJNAPl3JDnUxmop6&index=2
- Integrated Safe Exam Browser https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytztYguXixk&list=PLxcO_MFWQBDerI0lZJNAPl3JDnUxmop6&index=5
- More diverse filtering opportunities for participants facilitate the handling of students, especially in large courses.

In connection with the version update, the layout of DigiCampus was also modified to make it easier to use and accessible. In addition, a larger update for layout and usability is being prepared for implementation in spring 2021.
