Dear Faculty Members,
Before you leave for the summer, please note the following important information regarding the transition from Moodle 1.9 to Moodle 2.3!
1) Moodle support sessions for semester’s end/early summer are provided below. You can find the current schedule on the I.S. Blog and instructions on the KnowledgeBase. If you will be gone most of summer, we strongly urge you to attend a workshop or come to FITS during open lab hours before you leave, so that you can plan ahead for the transition. Backing up and restoring courses will take more of your time than previous Moodle upgrades have because of a new filing system in Moodle 2.3. Don’t wait until August!
2) Courses from Spring 2009 and earlier are currently on http://moodlearchive.
3) Non-academic Moodle courses (for example, a committee that uses a Moodle course to collect materials) will be created in Moodle 2.3 upon request only. Please fill out this form to have a course created.
Please let us know if you have any questions or need support by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re here to help make the transition as smooth as possible!
