CLAMP’s second CLAMP Chat for the 2021-2022 academic year will take place on Friday, November 19, from 2:00-3:00 PM Eastern Time. Andrew Ruether from Swarthmore College will preview the forthcoming Moodle 4.0 release, scheduled for January 2022. Focused mainly on improving the user interface, the new version claims to make it easier for teachers and students to navigate the system and access and edit content. Will you want to upgrade quickly or cling to earlier versions for as long as possible? Join us to get a sneak peek at the new interface and decide for yourself if the revamp was successful! We’ll do a tour of the updates and dive into any questions you have.
The chat will take place over Zoom. Please register for the chat using this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZwpdu2orD0iGdae-OmESzrrA9swOzOrsFap.
CLAMP’s first CLAMP Chat for the 2021-2022 academic year will take place on Friday, October 15, from 2:00-3:00 PM Eastern Time. Carly Born from Carleton College proposes to solve the age-old problem that “No one reads the documentation” through the use of Moodle’s User Tours feature. Experience with faculty members suggests that everyone–new and tenured faculty alike–are googling for answers rather than using the documentation provided or just contacting their support professionals. What if writing help articles is a waste of time, and just-in-time documentation, the kind that pops up when you visit a page for the first time, is the way to go? In Moodle, these are called User Tours, and there is an opportunity for CLAMP to work together to produce a collection of User Tours that are specific to small colleges and lighten our collective load!
