Moodle 2.2+ Upgrade
CPCC has migrated from Moodle 1.9 to Moodle 2.2. The new version of Moodle was activated on July 26, 2012. Moodle course shells for the Fall 2012 will run in the new version.
There are substantial differences from the previous version of Moodle. Several new features will make your teaching more fruitful while others will need some time to learn. Moodle 2.x brings many enhancements such as: improved performance, updated look and feel, enhanced navigation, conditional activities, completion tracking options, assignment rubric grading options, a more robust HTML editor, and much more!
eLearning will be partnering with ITS Learning Technologies and the CPCC Help Desk to make this transition smoother. For your convenience, we have scheduled several training sessions. Please check LearnerWeb for scheduled trainings and registration.
