Dear eClass users,
We would like to inform you that the eClass (Moodle and Blackboard Vista) systems will be offline on Thursday January 5, 2012 from 8:30 AM to 12:00 noon. We will be using this brief outage to upgrade to a newer version of Moodle which contains some important updates and improves a number of system features. Some of these features include:
- A newly designed and more robust Moodle question system
- The ability to restore the course contents from Moodle 1.9 backup files
- Bug fixes and improvements to security and performance
Please do not schedule any teaching or learning tasks during this period. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your patience.
