Moodle Maintenance Outage on 8/2/18

Hello, Moodle Users,

On Thursday, August 2nd beginning at 5pm, we will be upgrading Moodle to 3.5.1 (Liberal Arts Edition v15.0.1), and Moodle will be unavailable for approximately two hours. 

We will be transitioning Kalamazoo College’s theme to Boost, Moodle core’s most recent default.  Boost has an improved layout, a more efficient interface, and friendlier mobile experience.  Feedback has been positive, but we anticipate some adjustment and acclimation.  You can visit a new section of Moodle 101 introducing Boost and are invited to contact directly for support.  The biggest change is the removal of the Administration block in the lower left in favor of a gear wheel icon for editing in the upper right.

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 3.5.1.  As always, please contact me with any questions.
