June 3 -  new moodle in town

On June 3, between 2–9 a.m. (Pacific), we are upgrading the RRU Moodle platform and converting all current Moodle 2.1 courses to Moodle 2.6.  Moodle will be unavailable during this time.

Some highlights of this upgrade include:

  • improvements to the user experience (beautiful new theme, enhanced navigation and functionality)
  • introduction of a new course archive process to the RRU Moodle environment
  • we are laying the groundwork to "get current and stay current." Once we get to Moodle 2.6, we will do small upgrades every six months to stay current with the global Moodle community, on the most stable release of Moodle. This should provide ongoing improvements to all users for teaching, learning, and working in Moodle.

Communication to students will be handled through the Student Services team, with copies to program offices.

For the full story/more details, please see the Moodle Upgrade News on the (also new...!) CTET website.
