All,

Exciting news! This Sunday morning (8/30) from 6:00 AM to 11:00 AM we will be implementing Moodle integration with the Banner collegiate administrative suite.

What this means to you right now:
  • Moodle will be unavailable during the 6:00 AM to 11:00 AM window Sunday morning
  • each of your 'in process' fall courses will be imported into a new course shell on Sunday morning, looking just like the existing course
What this means when you access Moodle Sunday after the update:
  • under 'My courses' the course name will appear slightly different for regular Oxy courses (non-academic Moodle courses will not be affected)
    • instead of CourseNumber_F09 Course Name (ex. FREN301_F09 Exploring/Francophone World), you will see the full Course-Number-CourseRegistrationNumber-Course Name (ex. FREN-301-1503-Exploring/Francophone World)
  • you will see a course listing for all courses you are teaching this semester, whether or not you have created content for each course; students will only see courses you have made visible
  • students will be automatically added and dropped from your Moodle courses, in real time, as they add or drop classes through the Registrar's Office
  • student ID pictures will be available in Moodle profiles on Monday, after freshmen photos are completed; students may, of course, remove or replace their pictures, as they choose
If you have any questions, concerns, or technical difficulties, please contact the ITS Helpdesk at x2880 or helpdesk@oxy.edu.

Happy Moodling!
