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 (

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 for the Zoom link.
