I'm sharing this update from our partners in OIT:
Moodle 2.2 Upgrade
The Office of Information Technology (OIT), in collaboration with the Course Management System (CMS) Implementation Group, intends to upgrade Moodle 2.0 to Moodle 2.2 on Sunday, May 13 between the hours of 6am and noon. Moodle will be unavailable for 2-4 hours during this maintenance window. This date and time was selected based on the published academic calendars for all five campuses and in consultation with the CMS Implementation Group in an effort to minimize impact to students and faculty. That said, we recognize that many colleges and programs have different schedules and that this maintenance may inconvenience some users.
Please note: This will be an in-place upgrade which will not require any action from instructors or other course site owners.
In addition to adding new features, including a mobile-friendly interface and grading rubrics, the Moodle 2.2 upgrade will ensure that critical fixes and security patches will be available to us through the 2013 academic year.
For those who are interested in evaluating new features in Moodle 2.2, or would like to contribute to the testing process, a Moodle 2.2 Sandbox environment is available. The sandbox environment includes the latest version of Moodle 2.2, including all University of Minnesota customizations and integrations. Details about the Moodle 2.2 sandbox environment, including how to get access, are available on the MoodleTalk Moodle site.
If you have questions or concerns regarding this upgrade or the Moodle 2.2 sandbox, please contact the CMS Implementation project core team at CMS-TRANS@umn.edu.
