This presentation highlights University College London’s (UCL) introduction of Agile methodology and practice into a previously traditional project aligned digital education team. Focusing specifically on our approach to our upgrade to Moodle 4.2 from 3.11 and how it has changed the way work and how we upgrade forever.
