Moodle update: The issue that affected Collegue, Informer, and other systems on Friday morning also impacted Moodle's Friday night synchronization. IT became aware of the issue on Saturday morning and restored users into their course, but it seems that in most courses there are a few students whose grade information recorded in the gradebook prior to 11 PM Friday (9/29) was not restored. IT has a backup of the grades for all students prior to 11 PM Friday (9/29) and is testing a solution for merging these grades into the live Moodle server. If the tests succeed then IT will need to put Moodle into a maintenance mode on Friday afternoon (10/6) to do the grade merge. We have determined that the only grades that would not be able to be restored are ones that were entered between 11 PM on 9/29 and 3 AM on 9/30. Any grades that faculty may have already reentered will also not be overwritten. You can follow @woosteritalerts on Twitter for timely updates on system outages and issues. ... See MoreSee Less
