Welcome to Moodle 3.1

Moodle has a new look and some new functionality.  Our new theme is a great launching pad for creating courses that are pleasing to the eye as well as to the mind.  Experience our new theme and be introduced to several enhancements that make it easier to teach online such as a new assignment interface, easily editable titles and a recycling bin for those “oops” moments.  Our new one click web conferencing tool, Blackboard Ultra, is integrated with Moodle 3.1 and this will be demonstrated as well.  To register, please email learningandteaching@okanagan.bc.ca.
