Fall is the last semester to use Moodle 1

Hello Faculty and Staff,

Hope you are enjoying the summer!

Many of you have already started planning out your Fall courses. Keep in mind Fall semester will be the last semester Moodle 1 will be used. After Fall semester, only Moodle 2 courses will be available. All Moodle 1 courses will be archived in case you need to access them in the future.

Many of you have already made the transition to Moodle 2 and have provided us with valuable feedback. For those interested in transitioning to Moodle 2 for the Fall term, we've created a video and documentation to help make the process quick and easy:
https://www.plymouth.edu/webapp/help/wiki/Copy_your_Moodle_1_course_into_Moodle_2

Other common Moodle questions (and answers!):
Q:
I'm completely new to the Moodle system. Can I get an overview of what Moodle is and what it looks like?
A: Please refer to the following video tutorial for a "Moodle 101" walk through: https://www.plymouth.edu/webapp/help/wiki/Welcome_to_Moodle_2

Q:
What's the difference between Moodle 1 and Moodle 2?
A: Moodle 2 is considered an "update" to Moodle 1. Follow the link below for a full list of the changes in Moodle 2: https://www.plymouth.edu/webapp/help/wiki/What%27s_different_in_Moodle_2%3F

If you have any questions about the Moodle 2 transition, please contact the Learning Technologies and Online Education staff. Also, please visit our Moodle Help site for supporting documentation: go.plymouth.edu/moodlehelp

Thank you for your time! And again, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
