Moodle 2: It's aliiiiive!

May 14, 2013 at 1:02 pm

Greetings Beloiters!

We have been testing the new version of Moodle over the past couple semesters and we are now a go! The change is scheduled to happen on Tuesday, June 4. Moodle will be unavailable that day as we put on the finishing touches. If everything goes well it should be available again on June 5.

We are currently running two instances of Moodle (1.9):
https://bcmoodle.beloit.edu (old Moodle)
https://bcmoodle.beloit.edu/groups (old Moodle Groups)

We also have two pilot instances running Moodle 2.x software:
https://bkmoodle.beloit.edu (Moodle pilot)
https://bkmoodle2.beloit.edu (Moodle Groups pilot)

The plan is to replace the two old instances with two instances running upgraded software on Tuesday, June 4.  When this happens:

Please make sure to update any bookmarks or favorites to the new URLs. Please stay tuned for announcements about training opportunities.

As a reminder, all of the courses currently in https://bcmoodle.beloit.edu/groups are scheduled to be moved to the Moodle Groups pilot during the week of May 20.

Happy Moodling!
