If you’ve been looking forward to exploring the newly released Moodle 2.0 as an admin, now’s your chance on our freshly upgraded Moodle demonstration site! Unless someone has logged in as an admin and just changed it, the site is using the stunning three column fluid-width theme for Moodle 2.0, Magazine, with thanks to John Stabinger, NewSchool Learning (source: Theme credits).

If you’re a Swedish speaker, you’ll be pleased to hear of a new course on the site Bekanta dig med Moodle, a translation of the features demo course by Jeff Forssell.

All content on the Moodle demonstration site is made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 License, unless otherwise stated, so if you’d like to use one of the courses on your own Moodle 2 site, you’re welcome to login as an admin or a teacher and create a course backup.

If you fancy having a play with some of Moodle’s features, please visit our Moodle demonstration site, which now contains courses in eleven different languages!

The German course category includes four Mathematics courses developed and donated by Christina Russu. The courses make use of the TeX notation filter to display mathematical symbols.

The latest course to be added to the site is Understanding Moodle, donated by Stuart Mealor of HRDNZ, one of our Moodle Partners. The course is media-rich, with several movies, and also includes a couple of interesting lesson activities.

If you have a course illustrating some of Moodle’s many features which you’d like to donate for use on demo.moodle.org, please see Moodle demo courses for details of the process.

I’m pleased to announce that demo.moodle.org now has two more demonstration courses – in Arabic and Persian. These courses provide the opportunity for Moodle developers to test support of right-to-left languages. A big thank you to all our Moodle features demo course translators.

A new course in Dutch has also been added to the site – ICT en samenleving (thanks to Koen Roggemans). The course showcases a number of Moodle features including wiki activities with history, a random glossary entry block and even a quiz containing questions created by students (after assigning them the role of question creator).

I’m pleased to announce that demo.moodle.org now has a new course – Romeo and Juliet Sample Unit – thanks to Lesli Smith of Moodlerooms.

The course includes a variety of activities, and course participants are arranged into two groups, Montagues and Capulets.

Our demonstration site provides the opportunity for you to explore some of Moodle’s features as a student, teacher or administrator. It’s no problem if you make a mess, as the whole site is reset to a clean state every hour. The site is regularly updated and is currently using Moodle 1.9.5+.

If you don’t have a separate Moodle site for testing, then demo.moodle.org is a good place for checking whether a certain bug affects all Moodle sites, or just yours, and whether a bug has been fixed in the latest stable release of Moodle.
