Welcome to Moodle 2!

We've upgraded to Moodle 2. Though most things about the new system will be familiar there are a few differences you should be aware of:

  • The Navigation block is new and combines information from several old blocks. If you're looking for 'My courses' or 'My profile' check the Navigation block. You'll usually find it at the left side of the page near the top.
  • Courses and enrollments will now be processed nightly instead of at user login. This means students will be automatically enrolled and unenrolled from your courses--you no longer have to wait for a student to log into Moodle.
  • The Quickmail plugin is not compatible with this version of Moodle. The author is aware of the problem and is working on a fix. We'll deploy the updated plugin once it's available.
  • We've updated the Moodle FAQs to reflect the new version. Unfortunately, the screenshots for the FAQs were lost during the upgrade. We're working to fix this. [Update: Screenshots for the Moodle FAQs are now available.]

If you have questions about any of the changes or if you encounter problems please contact the Helpdesk at helpdesk@emu.edu or 540 432 4357 (x4357 on campus).

Thanks!
Ben.
