Small Change to Moodle Forums
by Peter Guenther - Tuesday, January 20, 2015, 3:10 PM

Starting tonight, there will be a small change in the way emails from Moodle forums are handled.  Forum posts will now come from a "no reply" address, to eliminate an issue we were having.  

As always, to reply to a forum, you need to log in to Moodle, go into the forum, and reply.

Previously emails would come from the forum post author's email address.  If you replied, it would go directly to the author, not to the forum as a whole.  Now if you reply, it will not be seen by anyone. Make sure you're going into Moodle to answer forum posts.

New BYOD Charging Table in the Commons
by John Hansknecht - Thursday, November 13, 2014, 10:37 AM

As we continue to fine tune our support for the BYOD program we have added a charging table in the commons where students may charge their device. We hope this helps students keep their device charged through the afternoon but remember the best methods for keeping your battery charged are:

  • charge the device completely each night
  • dim the brightness of your screen when running on battery
  • avoid using your devices for games, save the power for your school work

Computing Courses: Moodle Category Change
by Peter Guenther - Thursday, October 23, 2014, 12:29 PM

A new category has been created in Moodle for our computer classes, including Digital Literacy, Intro to Computer Science, AP Computer Science, and Intro to CAD and Engineering.  To make them easier to find, particularly for parents, a new category has been created: Computer Science & Digital Literacy.

Students already enrolled in this course will still get to them through their course list, so they won't see much of a change.  Parents checking into their sons' courses will now find them in this category instead of Math.
