I know it's ultimately my fault for not making the distinction between forums clear enough, but this forum is not meant to be about new features.
It's supposed to be about actual teaching practice using the current release.
I am planning a huge revamp of this whole course to remove the confusion (especially for those who are interested in teaching AND development - believe me I know how mixed up they can be!), but please, try and keep suggestions and discussion about new features in the developer forums or (preferably) http://moodle.org/bugs
Please understand I really appreciate all the great ideas flying around - I'm just trying to keep the place organised for people still arriving!
