Moodle 3 (until Summer 2021)
Bard Moodle was retired as the college's official learning management system at the end of Summer 2021.
Beginning in the Fall of 2021, Bard professors have the choice of using Bard Brightspace or Bard Google Classroom.
About Moodle course archives: We will be copying course content from Bard Moodle to Bard Brightspace during the fall 2021 semester. During this time Moodle will remain accessible to students and professors, but no new courses will be hosted there.
Course blog? Think of it as a self-published web site for your class. Because it is WordPress, it’s aesthetically pleasing and easy to customize. The format encourages collaborative work and resource sharing (including media files). Of all of the course tools, a course blog usually takes the most time to set up, because it is endlessly configurable. Your blog can be publicly visible or private (visible only to your enrolled students). First, request your Course blog, then, meet with us to start customizing it.
