Dear Faculty,

After May 17th, 2019, you will notice some improvements to eClass (Moodle). Please take note as you design and revise your course for a Summer Session launch, and be sure to let your students know, too!

Click on the YouTube link below for a step-by-step video walk-through some of the new features, functionality and design of eClass/Moodle:

Our goal is to bring you the latest features designed to make learning and teaching more engaging and user-friendly. This release includes many enhancements such as: improved grade completion features, new available fonts, updated text color options, addition of course images, and updated “Dashboard” functions and assignment-drop-box settings. Lastly, we have installed a new tool for instructors to be able to mark and grade student “Assignment Activities” directly in eClass without the need to download a submission.

If you would like to learn more about the recent upgrade or new features — please contact me directly or schedule a phone call or appointment in-person at
