Moodle Update + Focus on Teaching Registration

Moodle 3.9 is Coming April 28th

Overnight between April 27 and 28 all Moodle course shells will be updated to the new Moodle theme and Moodle will be upgraded to 3.9 (from our current 3.5).

  • Most of the elements of the Moodle update are aesthetic, but there are some new features that the team hopes will be useful and engaging for you and for your students.
  • Chris Schubert and Rob Comtois are creating an "Introduction to Moodle 3.9" video series to describe some of the new features and benefits of the update. They will share an all-staff message closer to the update.
  • Next week (week of April 19) Chris and Rob will host two "Introduction to Moodle 3.9" sessions for folks interested in a preview of Moodle prior to April 28.
  • We will also be connecting with all current students to let them know about the new look and functions in Moodle 3.9 and will ensure that all new spring 2021 students have the full student Moodle video playlist in the new format.
