District Moodle Upgrade

The District Moodle upgrade to 2.1 has gone quite well. Roles, users, calendars, assignments and resources moved perfectly. There were a few instances where images were absolutely referenced to their old course number and had to be fixed. All the LDAP accounts were somehow imported as manual accounts. That took some work to fix but it is done as well.

The new server is available at http://district.prn.bc.ca

Try it out and if you have any issues please email me at jbell@prn.bc.ca

If your school or district is working on upgrading and want to ask a question or two feel free to ask as well.

District Moodle upgrade

Our venerable http://www.district.prn.bc.ca moodle site will be moving to a new virtualized server along with a moodle version upgrade to 2.1 starting 8am Monday, July 11. Services at http://www.district.prn.bc.ca will no longer be available. The new server will be located at http://district.prn.bc.ca (dropped the www) hopefully not too many hours afterwards.

New Elementary Moodle Server

We are currently working on a new elementary moodle server. This will allow us to upgrade the moodle version, and use a different server that will easily allow us to virtualize it in the future. Virtualization of the server will let us throttle the processor, memory, and disk space and allow for easy scalability as the use increases.

The server is now available at http://elem.prn.bc.ca and we will begin transfering courses from the old site to the new. The old www.elementary.prn.bc.ca site will be deprecated in the summer of 2009.
