Instructor: Intro/Manual

Why are we doing this upgrade at the beginning of the semester?

This upgrade is part of the scheduled maintenance update from Moodlerooms.
Moodlerooms indicated that July 8 is the original upgrade date to v2.8. A delay to schedule this at the end of Summer II was considered, but this would only provide faculty a very short period of time to view their fall courses in this new environment, to check out the new features, and to provide feedback.

Will there be a downtime?
Yes, our site (http://moodle.ulm.edu) will be down on Wednesday, July 8, from 11pm to 5 am CDT (July 9, Thurs.)

What will happen to my courses?
The upgrade does not affect your course contents or the rosters. 
You will notice additional options and features.
Note that some features are optional.

What is new in 2.8?
