CourseSpaces will be available on November 20, 2013

What is CourseSpaces?

CourseSpaces is a new centrally-supported LMS based on the newest version of Moodle. The system has been in pilot over the summer and we are continuing to improve it. For this release there are many new features, including:

  • Moodle 2.4 technology
  • A mobile-friendly interface
  • Drag & drop functionality for files (to upload) and topics (to organize)
  • Peer-reviewing
  • Activities and resources that are conditional on other activities
  • Ability to extend quizzes for individual students

How do I set up my class in CourseSpaces?

The way you select an LMS has not changed; the only difference is that you will now see CourseSpaces as another option. Staff members who use the OLSA admin utility will now also see CourseSpaces as an option.
