Our Moodle site will be upgraded to Moodle 2.5 during the night of Dec. 30 and into the morning of Dec. 31. The site will likely be down for about 6 hours. It could be longer.
When the site comes back up, some of the icons will be a bit different. New features for students include a word count in the forums and templates for essay questions. There will be some other features which teachers may or may not use in your Moodle courses.
Your login id/pw should remain the same and you should continue to have access to sites for which you had access before the upgrade.
