Online Learning Support Center
Have you looked at OmniUpdate! It's a great option for displaying public information about your courses.
Mt. SAC migrated from Blackboard to Moodlerooms Learning Management System in 2012. See more information on the Moodlerooms Self Help Resources Page
Question: Is Moodlerooms the same as Moodle?
Answer: No. Moodle is the "core" of Moodlerooms, but Moodlerooms adds their "value" components around Moodle - and also hosts the site for Mt.SAC.
Why is this important? Some features/add-ins in Moodle are not compatible with Moodlerooms.
Web Options for Faculty
If you were wondering what web options you have, as a faculty member of Mt. SAC, this is the place for you! From syllabus sharing to grading and everything in between, see the capabilities of Course Studio, OU Campus and Moodlerooms. Also, learn what training, if any is required.
This matix offers a comparison between three Mt. SAC supported faculty web content options. Web Options for Faculty PDF
