This time is designed as a working lab to begin the process of establishing your online courses in Moodle. Participants need not attend the entire time; however, we encourage you to sign up for a consultation with an e-learning staff member to determine the most efficient process for your courses. After that, feel free to hang out in the e-learning area to work on your course with support nearby.

We will limit participation based on computers and available support, so please pre-register to ensure the best experience.
