At the end of the Spring term, on May 1st 2023, CapU will be updating its eLearn platform to Moodle 4.1. This is a major upgrade that will change the layout of your course and add some new features. What does this mean for your course?
Here is a new resource in Introduction to eLearn to help you prepare for the switch:
Course: Introduction to eLearn, Topic: Strategies for Adapting to 4.1 (capu.ca)
While most things about the way Moodle hosts courses will remain the same, the layout of your course page will be a bit different. At the same time a few things will be easier:
- You’ll be able to drag and drop resources and activities between and inside sections
- The course menu will be immediately available to open and close on the left side
- The new course building menu system makes it easier to find things like the Question Bank
- Activities will have new, larger icons, making them easy to spot on the page
Watch this short video for a preview of what your course will look like in the new Moodle 4.1
To help with the transition to this new version of eLearn, the CTE will be holding a series of online drop-in workshops from noon to 1pm on the following dates:
- March 1st, 2023
- March 15, 2023
- March 29, 2023
- April 12, 2023
- April 26, 2023
We’ll take a look at your course in the new format and talk about strategies for working with the new layout and features. If you’d like to join us, email firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link.
