Moodle Sandbox Courses Now Available

Want to try out Moodle now, before the big move in Spring 2011? Get a Sandbox course!

Sandbox courses are where faculty can explore Moodle, test the different activity types, and learn how to use Moodle effectively. Sandbox courses aren't "live" - students don't have access - so they are a safe and "worry-free" place for faculty to try out Moodle tools. Faculty can also use sandbox courses to start building courses for use next Spring.

Sandbox courses can be set up for any SSU faculty member. Staff who support faculty to develop online course materials, or who want to explore Moodle as a possible tool to support other academic programs and activites, may also request a sandbox course.
