Use Moodle to build your course webpage, share important reference materials, and increase interaction with collaborative tools that keep student engaged in and out of the classroom. 

Moodle Migration

Beginning on May 19, 2016 at 5:00pm EST, Moodle will begin migration to new servers, which will mean a new and improved user interface. The outage to complete the enhancements to our site will last approximately five days with the new site going live on 5/25/2016. 

For faculty members teaching during the outage, your course site/s will be available on the test site for our new system. This site will have the new look and feel that will go live on 5/25. The test site URL and log-in information will be provided to you directly in the coming weeks (no later than 4/14/2016). Your course will start and finish on this version of the site and will be moved to the production environment upon completion of your course.

Faculty teaching in Summer 1 or Summer 2, or in the fall semester - any course content you create on our current server prior to the migration will be migrated to the new site. If you want to get a head start on building your courses, feel free to do so! The materials will be waiting for you after the migration is complete.

Over the next several months, we will be updating all of our support content to match the new server's appearance. Please be patient with us as we transition. In this current version of Moodle, these were notable added features:
