Moodle founder, Martin Dougiamas, has announced the release of version 2.2 of his open source online learning platform. Short for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment, Moodle is a cross-platform course management system (CMS) – also known as a virtual learning environment (VLE) or learning management system (LMS) – whose goal is to provide educators with tools for managing and promoting learning for their students.  Moodle 2.2 is a major update that includes a new advanced grading methods subsystem. The first advanced grading plug-in is, the developers say, a “long-requested feature”: support for Rubrics. These are used for criteria-based assessment, but only currently work for assignments; they will be extended across all modules in a later release.
