Moodle will be unavailable from Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at 8:00 AM to Wednesday, June 12, 2019 at 8:00 AM as we transition from Spring 2019 to Fall 2019. After the transition, Spring 2019 Moodle will be available at Moodle Archive. 

Services affected: Moodle at https://moodle.macalester.edu

What is being done: 
  • Update security and functionality.
  • Populate Fall 2019 Moodle courses and enrollments.
  • Archive Spring 2019 Moodle courses.
  • Remove themes that are no longer compatible with modern Moodle.
    • Over the course of the summer the AIAs will be finding and evaluating new compatible themes.
  • Change the login experience to use Macalester’s single sign-on. 
Moodle login instructions:
  • Go to moodle.macalester.edu.
  • Click Login.
    • If you are already logged into 1600grand or another Macalester application, you will be automatically logged into Moodle.
    • If you have not already logged into 1600grand or another Macalester application, you will be prompted to enter your Macalester username and password.
  • Check out ITS Notices and Alerts for more information about the login experience.
When is this taking place: Tuesday, June 11 at 8:00 AM to Wednesday, June 12 at 8:00 AM.
