Moodle Unavailable - Thurs., July 11, 2019

June 14, 2019

Moodle, the university's learning management system (LMS), will be unavailable on Thursday, July 11, 2019. Faculty and instructors are asked to update any due dates in advance. 

The service will be unavailable for part of the day as UMass Amherst upgrades to Moodle 3.5 to meet and maintain security and accessibility requirements. The upgrade will also bring a new look and feel to Moodle, with new interface changes, tools, and more. 

Moodle 3.5 Highlights

Instructional Innovation is hosting a series of workshops throughout the summer covering the upgrade. The "What's Coming in Moodle 3.5" and "Find your way around Moodle" workshops can be found on the Instructional Innovation Events page.

If you have questions or would like to schedule a 1-on-1 consultation, please contact the Instructional Media Lab at or call 413-545-2823.
