Some Key Differences Between Moodle 3.x and 4.x

The revamped website, course, and module navigation simplify the navigation hierarchy and facilitate easier, more intuitive, and faster navigation.
The course pages have been redesigned to be more user-friendly for editing and to allow simpler tracking of tasks and activities.
In the newer versions of Moodle 4.x, the content editor’s navigation has been updated. Before Moodle 4.0, all content management options were hidden in a dropdown menu under the gear icon. However, the updated system in Moodle 4.x has replaced the dropdown with a tab-based navigation system.

The quiz functionality and question bank have been enhanced, incorporating usage statistics, results, feedback, question versions, and more.
The new Moodle provides additional insights about the activities or resources within a course. For instance, even before opening an activity, one can see the start date for task submissions and the deadline. In previous versions of Moodle, this was only visible once the activity was accessed.

H5P Integration: Moodle 4.2 has made it easier for content creators to create and integrate H5P content directly into their courses. When a creator makes changes to the content, they can send a message to participants notifying them that the course has been updated.

For any activity that has an assigned grade, it can be specified in the completion criteria that a participant must achieve a passing grade for the progress tracking to be marked as complete.
