It’s official – SOU is going to Moodle!

Given the overwhelmingly positive response to Moodle during summer and fall pilot programs and the many advantages that Moodle offers over Blackboard, the decision has been made to adopt Moodle campus-wide by June 10, 2011. The Blackboard system will be turned off when our site license expires in June. The transition is already underway and we are confident that essential course materials will be shifted to Moodle and that students and faculty will have adequate opportunities to become familiar with the new system by the time Blackboard shuts down.
