Dear Faculty,

We have completed the Banner course import to Moodle for the Spring 2010 semester. You will now be able to add content to your courses in preparation for the new semester. If you taught the course before, you can import course content from a previous semester or request that we do that for you.

A few reminders:

because the course name is taken from the official Banner listing, it is slightly different for Spring 2010 Oxy courses (previous and non-academic Moodle courses remain titled as before) whether or not you have created content for each course you are teaching this semester (including lab sections) you will see a course listing for the course enrolled students will not see your courses until you make them visible under Administration -> Settings -> Availability on your course’s homepage [no other setting changes are needed] as students add/drop classes through the Registrar's Office, they will automatically be added/dropped in your Moodle courses – in real time

We ask that for all things Moodle (including consultations), you open an ITS Help Desk ticket. This provides us with centralized tracking, allows us to spot and address recurring issues, problems or questions, and ensures you will be contacted in a timely manner by the appropriate person or, should they be unavailable, their designated backup. Also, if you are teaching multiple sections of a course and want all sections combined into a single Moodle course, please send your request to the ITS Help Desk at or x2880.

For those of you who like the picture feature in Moodle but not when students change them, you can now view/print student ID photos from SEAN, the Student Early Alert Notification.
