On Saturday, September 3, cuLearn will be getting its annual upgrade, going from Moodle version 2.8.7 to version 3.1.1.

The annual upgrades are a means of continually improving the system. The overall look and feel will be very similar to the current version, however there will be significant improvements to the gradebook and the overall system performance, including:

  • Smoother assignment grading
  • Easy retrieval of deleted course files and activities
  • Improved course editing
  • New quiz question types
  • Greater usability for students and enhancement to several activities such as the forum, workshop and lesson

Please note that this upgrade will take place within the 10-day period for the submission of final grades to the E-Grade system for approval. If you plan to calculate grades in cuLearn, please download them to your computer prior to September 3, because the cuLearn gradebook will not be available from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on this date. If you need any help with this, please contact edc@carleton.ca.

This upgrade will not affect any data or content added to your courses and you will be able to continue working on your courses after 3 p.m. on September 3.

If you have any questions about the upgrade, contact the EDC at edc@carleton.ca.
