Banner-Moodle Integration
by Moodle Administrator - Saturday, August 29, 2009, 5:51 PM

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

Happy Moodling!
