Download older Moodle materials by June 30th, 2014

In order to comply with copyright law, LITS must turn off student access to Moodle course sites a few weeks after grades are due.


If you wish to save copies of any Moodle materials from a Spring 2014 course site (or older Moodle sites), please do so by June 30, 2014. If you have an extension and require access to a course site beyond this date, please contact the course instructor.

Note that this process - shutting off access to the previous semester's course sites about a month after grades are due - will be standard procedure from here on out.

  1. Does this mean that my Moodle site for a particular course must be entirely re-constituted each semester?

    1. Hi Sarah,

      Sort of, yes, but it's not difficult to copy all of your material to a new course site. We create new course sites for each course in each semester according to data from ISIS, and you can easily copy your materials from your old course site to a new one in a few steps. We're having a drop-in session where we will be helping people with this, this afternoon (June 10) from 1:30 to 2:30 PM in Library 619. And we've made a video about how to do it, as well:

      Hope this helps! And of course, we're around if you'd like to make an appointment to get some help in person.

      Sarah
