Change Moodle site availability from the Course Hub

Moodle/WordPress training workshops – Language Schools 2011

Categories: Midd Blogosphere, updates

Dear Language Schools Faculty,

As you know, the current summer is the final semester in which you will be able to add new content to Segue. (After the end of this summer, Segue will become “Read-only”.)  Middlebury is in the process of transitioning away from Segue to other courseware.  In preparation for this, LIS is offering a series of training workshops for Language School faculty.  Moodle and WordPress will be covered in the sessions.  We will discuss background and theory (when to use what, how to transfer content, etc.), as well as offer hands-on training.

Several workshops will be offered in the Davis Family Library 105.

Week of July 4
