New Year, New Moodle! (Updated)

Moodle has been upgraded to a new version of the software. Most of the updates are internal, but please note that there is an updated Activity Chooser window, with some new options. If you have questions about how to use what you see there, please get in touch at moodlehelp-g@mtholyoke.edu.

Turn Editing On has moved out of the Gear menu. To edit your course look for the square, green button in the upper left hand corner of the page, next to the word "Moodle". Click it once to turn editing on. While you're editing, it will appear as a red button, and you can click it again to stop editing.

Do you use Gradescope? LITS has purchased a site license and will be adding Gradescope to Moodle in the next few days. If you are an existing Gradescope user, you will be able to use the Activity Chooser to add Gradescope directly to your Moodle course, sync your rosters, and send data to the gradebook if you choose to do so. We hope this integration will enhance your experience. If you do not currently use Gradescope, please know that LITS will be rolling out more information soon! All faculty are welcome to use this tool.

Faculty drop-in sessions are back! Join Lindsey, Sarah, Matt, and Stephanie on Tuesdays or Thursdays at 4 PM (here's the link to the Zoom). The team will be hosting drop-ins twice a week throughout Spring 2021. Individual appointments are also once again available.

Happy 2021,
LITS' Digital Pedagogy team
