Moodle 2 Training Opportunities Coming Soon!(Archive)

The new version of Moodle will be available to instructors in March 2013, to create and prepare courses for the summer and fall semesters. Project spaces can also be requested in March 2013, allowing instructors to use Moodle for non R&R activities or to begin practicing with Moodle 2.3 in a personal playspace. Beginning in summer 2013, all courses on the academic Moodle server will use the new version and in order to prepare  for the upgrade, DELTA is providing many opportunities for training and Q&A throughout 2013.

Beginning in February, a Moodle 2 seminar, offered via face-to-face and online via Blackboard Collaborate and a face-to-face, hands-on workshop starting in March, will be provided on a weekly basis through the end of the Spring semester. Our schedule is as follows:
