- Gradebook survey
Moodle tips of the week:
- Our server migration to the
new host is underway. The first classes are starting today. Any classes that
start today or later, will be held on the new server. Classes on the old server
will stay there until completed. Make sure you are using http://www.viterbo.edu/moodle
rather than moodle.viterbo.edu.
- The first thing you will
notice when you log into the new Moodle is that it has a different appearance.
We chose a new theme that has a cleaner, more open feel. Everything still works
the same way, but it will just look a little different. Annie Baumann of the
library has created a short tutorial highlighting some of the changes.
- The second thing you will
notice are a few new features. We have upgraded the new Moodle to the newest
version. The old Moodle will be upgraded the first week of July. I’ll have more
for you on the new features in upcoming episodes.
- Last, but not least, Moodle HQ
(the people who created Moodle) has a survey on the gradebook. If there are
things you like or dislike about the gradebook, here is your chance to tell the
people who make new feature and fix things. You can give them your wish list.
BTW: the issue of overridden categories is there, you can go vote for that.
