MoodleF11-S14 to be decommissioned 3/1/18

In keeping with our Moodle Long-term Archive/Retention Policy we will decommission the server on Thursday, March 1, 2018. That server hosts Moodle courses taught between fall 2011 and spring 2014.

Once decommissioning is complete, you will no longer be able to log onto that server and look at your old Moodle courses directly. Materials for courses taught up to eight years ago will still be available upon request from IITS, but it may take up to a week to restore those materials to a location that you can access.

We strongly recommend that you backup any of your courses that are on the server. This is especially useful if you have courses that you have not taught since spring 2014, which have materials in Moodle.

We started this policy of decommissioning old Moodle servers in 2014. Decommissioning old servers limits security vulnerabilities and lets us reuse hardware resources for current projects.

If you have any questions, or want help backing up a course, please email hc-techlearn.
