When Three LMSs Become One

Last academic year, the UMN system had 3 centrally supported Learning Management Systems (LMS):

  1. Moodle 1.9
  2. Moodle 2
  3. WebVista

This academic year, Moodle 2 is the only centrally supported system. Moodle 1.9 courses may be accessed by instructors from the archive server but are no longer available for teaching students directly. If you have a Moodle 1.9 course you would like to copy into Moodle 2, you only need to copy the url of the Moodle 1.9 course from the archive server, and paste the url into the "Course URL" field when you request your Moodle 2 course site.

WebVista is no longer accessible in any form by anyone at UMN. August 31, 2012 was the last date to access the server.
