Moodle: End of Fall Semester & Spring Semester Courses

As we wrap up the fall semester, there are a number of things you'll want to consider doing with your Moodle courses before December 29 @ 5:00 p.m. (All fall Moodle courses will be removed on December 30)

Copy your fall course(s) back into your Master course(s):

Spring 2012 courses

All spring Moodle course are currently available to faculty only. Spring classes will be made available to students automatically 35 days before the first day of spring classes. This is a system-wide setting that cannot be customized.

If you have content in your courses you do not want your students to see, you can hide topic areas/sections or individual items until you are ready to make them available to students. To hide topic sections, click the eye in each topic section. You can also hide individual items as you create them by selecting hide in the item settings. All content you have hidden will be displayed in light gray.

Don't see one of your Spring 2012 courses?
If you are teaching a spring course, but can't see it in Moodle, please contact the Registrars Office to confirm you have been assigned as the instructor of the course. Once the Registrar's Office adds you as the instructor for a course, the course will become available to you in Moodle within 12-24 hours.
