We're excited to announce that Moodle, FPU's learning management system, will be getting a much-needed makeover this summer. The changes that are coming will bring the look-and-feel of Moodle more up-to-date and provide a modern teaching and learning experience to Fresno Pacific University learning platform. There will also be new features and feature enhancements that will benefit all users.
This project has been a collaborative effort between the Center for Online Learning and I.T. Services, in consultation with University Communications and Marketing and the Online Advisory Committee and input from a select group of faculty and students.
The Moodle update will be put in to place on Tuesday, July 9, 2019. Moodle will be inaccessible while updates are applied, which will likely require most of the day.
This date was very carefully chosen to minimize disruption on courses, grading, and registration with respect to all academic populations and calendars.
The Moodle Beta preview site is now available at https://fresno36.moonami.com
Please log in to the site and check out the new navigation features.

Things To Remember:
The following is a quick overview of the new features and tools that will become available following the update:
All existing courses and content will be migrated automatically for the July 9 update; you do not need to take any action to bring it over. There may be some minor changes to styling of elements that may need to be addressed after the migration due to the new look of the site.
Yes! The changes that are coming are vital to maintaining a healthy and vibrant learning management system for teaching and learning at the university. Our current Moodle installation is out of date in 3 primary ways:
Moodle Dev is not going with us into the glorious future. It has served us well, but Moodle Dev will be decommissioned on May 24, 2019 and course development efforts and Master courses will be migrated to our current Moodle site at learning.fresno.edu. This consolidation of Moodle sites will reduce duplication of maintenance efforts and streamline the Moodle experience for course development and delivery.
If you have master Moodle shells on Moodle Dev that need to be transferred over to learning.fresno.edu, please contact the Center for Online Learning to request a course content migration prior to May 24, 2019.
