Scheduled Outage: Moodle

The Moodle upgrade that failed this morning, will be reattempted on Monday, July 18, at 3:00am. 

The upgrade should involve one to two hours of downtime for Moodle and will be completed by the beginning of the workday.  This is a significant upgrade from version 3 to 4, which has a new look and feel that most will find easier and more intuitive to use.  However, it is a change, and we recognize that instructors with classes in session may need some additional support.  If you have classes at this time, we encourage you to email for information from the IS Moodle Team about training opportunities.
