    "Students at Risk" email from Web Services

    de 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

    de 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,

    Moodle Maintenance -Thursday (12/17/20) at 5pm EST

    de Josh Moon -

    Hello Moodle Users,

    On Thursday, December 17th beginning at 5pm, we will be upgrading Moodle to 3.9, and Moodle will be unavailable for approximately two hours. We ask that you please save your work and prepare to log off Moodle before 5pm EST.

    I'm excited about a number of new features including extensive updates to the Forum activity to make it more pleasant to look at and easier to grade.  I don't anticipate any changes being significantly disruptive or unfamiliar to experienced users. I'll provide full notes and any support material necessary once the upgrade is a success.

    Thank you,

    Josh Moon
