  • Moodle Improvements

    December 15, 2011 at 11:17 am

    From Instructional Technologist Jedidiah Rex...

    I am excited to announce some improvements to Moodle. The biggest and most apparent change is that there will be two separate Moodle instances. This change has come about due to more and more groups on campus (departments, committees, etc.) using Moodle to manage administrative responsibilities. I have received multiple requests to separate some of the these courses from the academic courses. This change will also better facilitate Jenzabar integration in the future.
