Since the UBC MET Moodle server needs to be moved to a new box (i.e. server), we’re going to take the opportunity presented and upgrade to Moodle 2.0. On 17 October 2011.
I’ll be posting a message on the MET Moodle server landing page as well, but I suggest folks backup and download a copy of their course sites. Your courses should work fine on 2.0, but if there is a problem you can still load your course on another Moodle 1.9.x installation.
Welcome to the world of educational technology and the accompanying magic carpet ride!
