    Faculty now have access to Moodle sites for Spring 2021

    by Josh Moon -

    Hello Moodle Instructors,

    Information Services has once again created Moodle course sites for spring 2021.  These should be available to instructors immediately.  You may make them visible to students at your discretion as we get closer to the start of the quarter at the end of March.

    If you would like course content imported from one Moodle site to another, require adjustments to your course, or have other requests, you can access the Moodle Requests for Imports and Course Creation from the Site Home and the Dashboard. 

    Please contact me with any questions.

    "Students at Risk" email from Web Services

    by Josh Moon -

    Hello Moodle Users,

    Many of you received email messages on Friday afternoon informing you about the status of students in your Moodle Sites. This email was legitimately from our Moodle installation but was the result of an "analytics" tool enabled during our recent update.  Because our testing sandbox does not send out notifications, we did not catch that this new feature was enabled by default.  We believe we have successfully disabled all such notifications. While we will continue to review emergent Moodle capabilities, our intention is not to widely apply these features at this time.

    We apologize for the confusion and inconvenience.

    Best,

    Upgrade to Moodle 3.9 is complete w/notes

    by Josh Moon -
    Hello Moodle Users,

    We have successfully upgraded to Moodle 3.9. Though most of the look and functions in Moodle will be familiar, I’m happy to share a few notes:

    • The Moodle Forum has numerous improvements to make use easier.
      • A new formatting that looks clearer and more refined.
      • A “Whole Forum Grading” setting where instructors can easily view and grade all student posts on one page.
      • Private replies to student posts.
      • Both an Export and Summary that make seeing the big picture of Forum activity easier. 
      • Star and Sort Thread options to view the information you want.

        Faculty relying on Forums for online conversation will be able to streamline their workflow with these changes. You can also watch New Features in the Moodle Forum on Stream for a video overview.

    • We also welcome back the "Editing ON/OFF" button featured prominently again at the top right of the Course Homepage for instructors. 
    If you have any questions, please contact me!

    Best,
    Josh Moon
