Continuing Workshops Aid in the Migration from WebCT to Moodle

The IT Department continues to provide workshops detailing the migration process from WebCT to Moodle, the Learning Management System that will replace WebCT in Spring 2011. Faculty who use WebCT received an email on September 7, 2010 with information about migrating WebCT courses to Moodle.

Moving courses from WebCT to Moodle is much like moving from one house to another. The moving company can load up belongings and haul them to the new home, but you have to unpack your valuables, and decide where to place them. It's the same with WebCT and Moodle. IT will move WebCT course files to a Migration Staging Moodle course. IT and the Library will provide training sessions to help faculty learn what do to with your content in Moodle, how to add activities and other resources. IT and the Library will also provide one-on-one consulting to help faculty use Moodle effectively.

Migration Process Outline

1. Reply to the Sept. 7 moodle@sonoma.edu email to confirm the courses to migrate.

3. View two brief (less than 10 minutes total) Moodle training videos at lynda.com before attending the workshop.
