As the final step in our Moodle upgrade process, both old and new Moodle sites will be down for scheduled maintenance between 9:00 am to 11:00 am on Aug 18, 2020

During this outage:

  • The URL for this Moodle site will change to
  • It will be connected to Panopto, and Panopto course folders will be created for all fall 2020 academic courses.
  • The URL for the old Moodle site, which contains fall 2017-summer 2020 content will become
  • The old moodlearchive site, which contains course content from fall 2014-spring 2017 will be retired.

Starting at 11am, students, faculty and staff should log into to access fall academic courses. (We will place a redirect on to alert anyone who accidentally logs in after that.)


If you need course materials on, create and download a backup file BEFORE 9AM AUGUST 18. You will lose access to those materials at that point.

Please note that due to security risks connected to outdated software on, we have had to restrict access to  to people who are on physically on campus or logging in through the VPN. You will see a security warning when accessing the site, This is due to the outdated software; it is okay to proceed in order to archive materials, but this is why it is imperative that we take the site down as soon as possible.
