We will be upgrading Thursday afternoon at 5pm to Moodle to 3.2.3 (Liberal Arts Edition v12.0.2), and Moodle will be unavailable for approximately two hours. The update will introduce a significant change in the entry page for the site. Once you log in, you will now be directed to the Dashboard page. This will display your current courses as well as recent courses from the previous quarter. Dashboard entry is the new default for Moodle and hopefully a more convenient choice during most of the year. If students are actively enrolling or you wish to view the list of departmental categories, the course categories are still accessible by clicking “All courses” in the center column or using the Navigation block on the left.
Most of the modifications from 3.0 to 3.2 are mild. When the upgrade is complete on Thursday night, I will post a notification to the Site News that will include more details on changes in Moodle 3.2.3. As always, please contact me with any questions.
