End of Year and Next Year Plan

As the year winds down, we will be sending out information about end-of-the-year processes, namely backing up your course for use next year. This year, the backup is automated. This will allow you to easily import your class, minus student data, into your new classes for 2012-13. We do recommend that you create a personal backup, also.

Also, we will be upgrading to Moodle 2.0 this summer. This version of our Online Classroom system has many new and exciting upgrades to make creating tasks much more streamlined. There will also be helpful tools to minimize the amount of time to create learning experiences for students.

Thank you for using the Portland Schools Online Classroom System. We are always interested in your feedback.

Below is a good video to show you what some of the visual differences between Moodle 1.9 (which we are on this year) and 2.0 (next year.) You will notice it is much cleaner and more customizable.
