Classes officially begin today and it promises to be an exciting year at Plymouth! In the next few months we will complete our move off of Blackboard and on to Moodle. The adoption has been swift and from what I've seen of the courses now on Moodle, faculty are using their creative talents to develop some truly engaging course pages. There is a block on Moodle's homepage that shows who's online, and at any given time this morning, there were over 100 active Moodlers! In addition, we continue to see more use of our fabulous ePortfolio system (Mahara). Speaking of Mahara, PSU will be hosting New Hampshire's first "Focus on ePortfolio Day" on October 4th. There will be wonderful presentations by folks from K-12 on how they are using ePortfolios in their schools, and panel discussions in the afternoon. The event has gotten attention from as far away as New Zealand--K-12 and Higher Ed working together on ePortfolios! We are excited that PSU is able to host this significant event. If you have not registered, be sure to do so asap as seating is limited to the first 150. You can register here: http://www.plymouth.edu/online/events/nhfocus_2010.html
We're off to an exciting start. Check back often for resources, tips, and news.
