Move to Moodle 2 Next Semester
by Lucas W Dowden - Monday, 12 November 2012, 03:40 PM
 

Faculty and Staff Moodle Users,

The university will upgrade its learning management system Moodle NG to a new version, Moodle 2, during the winter break. All courses in the Spring 2013 semester with any Moodle component will be offered on Moodle 2.

Moodle 2 is now available at http://moodle2.louisiana.edu for faculty exploration and spring 2013 course preparation.

Read the Office of Distance Learning's two most recent blog posts for more details about this change and how to migrate your courses from Moodle NG (1.9+), our current version, to Moodle 2, this semester at http://ullafayetteon.wordpress.com.

Training is being provided. For training dates, visit http://distancelearning.ucs.louisiana.edu/content/upcoming-dates. Some training sessions will be recorded and posted on the Office of Distance Learning and Moodle 2 web sites.

A set of videos is being created by the Office of Moodle Support to support all Moodle 2 users. You are strongly encouraged to read the blog and request courses to be migrated so any errors in the migration process can be detected and corrected.

Best wishes,

Luke Dowden, Ed.D.

Director

Reminders: Preparing Moodle Course Shells for Fall 2012 Use
by Lucas W Dowden - Sunday, 19 August 2012, 03:40 PM
 

Dear Faculty Moodle Users,

Here are some reminders on how to activate and use your Moodle course shells that are available for the Fall 2012 semester.

Using Information in Your Previous Courses in Future Courses

There are different methods for moving information you created in previous courses into your new course shells. These methods are explained in three brief videos on the front page of Moodle under the Main Menu block in the top left hand corner under the “Information for Faculty” section inside of the “Course Back-Up, Restore, and Import Videos” link.

Importing Previous Course Information Inside Moodle NG. Many faculty members have asked how to move information from a previous semester into a course shell(s) for this fall semester. Please watch the video on “New Course Set Up including Import and Course Settings.” This video introduces the “import” feature which speeds up time in copying course information, but does not create a back up file on your computer as is done when you use “back up and restore,” a feature still available to you in Moodle NG.

Special thanks to Nola Navarre who produced these videos from concept to completion.

Course Availability to Students

When course shells are automatically created, students are not able to see the course because the availability setting for students is automatically set to "not available." This setting makes the course appear a lighter color to you in your list of courses. Faculty, who plan to use Moodle, must make the course available to students and can do so by following these steps so students can see and access the course:

In order to make your course available to students, please follow these steps:

  1. Log onto your course,
  2. Click on the Settings link in the Administration block,
  3. Scroll down to the Availability section,
  4. Change the settings to "this course is available to students," and
  5. Save your changes by clicking "Save Changes" at the bottom.

Please contact ithelp@louisiana.edu if you need assistance with these items or other Moodle questions.

Good Luck,

Luke Dowden, Ed.D.

Getting Summer 2011 Courses Ready
by Lucas W Dowden - Tuesday, 31 May 2011, 07:10 PM
 

Dear Faculty Moodle Users,

Here are some reminders on how to activate and use your course shells that are available for the Summer 2011 semesters.

Using Information in Your Previous Courses in Future Courses

There are two different methods for moving information you created in previous courses into your new course shells. These methods are explained in three brief videos on the front page of Moodle under the “Main Menu” block in the top left hand corner inside of the “Teacher Information Page and Video Link.”

Backing Up Information from a Course in Old Moodle and Restoring It. Two flash movies on backing up your course in Old Moodle and restoring your courses in Moodle NG proceed a link to Old Moodle inside the “Teacher Information Page and Video Link.” Access to Old Moodle, the Moodle installation used through Summer 2010, will be taken offline permanently on June 30, 2011.

Importing Previous Course Information Inside Moodle NG. Many faculty members have asked how to move information from a course taught this fall semester, winter intersession, and/or spring semester into a course shell(s) for the summer semester. Please watch the video on “New Course Set Up including Import and Course Settings.” This video introduces the “import” feature which speeds up time in copying course information, but does not create a back up file on your computer as is done when you use “back up and restore,” a feature still available to you in Moodle NG.

Course Availability to Students

When course shells for future semesters are created, the availability setting for students is automatically set to "not available." This setting makes the course appear a lighter color to you in your list of courses. Faculty have the option of when to make the course available to students.
