IMPORTANT: Moodle Downtime 8/18/18

This message was sent as an email on August 14, 2018 to Moodle users listed as instructors from Summer 2016-2018.

Moodle will be upgraded to version 3.5 on 8/18/2018.  There will be no access to Moodle during the upgrade.  The exact timing of system down-time will be determined by Thursday, August 16th and a subsequent email will be sent.

What does it mean to me?

  • There will be minimal functionality and interface changes associated with the upgrade.
  • We are not migrating content to a different system - rather we are only upgrading the software. The content of your courses will not be impacted.
  • If you have assignments or assessments that students need to submit via Moodle on August 18th, please change the due dates accordingly (For assistance contact the Moodle helpdesk at or 973-972-8676)

How can I get Help?

If you have any questions regarding the Moodle upgrade please send an email to
