The procedure for uploading files to a course has gotten easier. You will now see an "upload" dialog directly on every screen in your course file […]
This is just a reminder that Moodle will be unavailable for a brief period on Saturday morning, March 12, 2011. The ITS maintenance window for changes to a number of services is between 8:00 AM and noon. We expect the changes specific to Moodle to take much less time than that. All the same, please […]
