In the Spring of 2011, Moodle was chosen by the University Technology Committee as the replacement system for Pacific's Blackboard service. Moodle is an open-source Learning Management System (LMS), that, like Blackboard, will provide Pacific faculty, staff, and students with course web spaces, discussion forums, online quizzing, and other instructional tools. Moodle will be phased in over the 2011-12 school year and will be fully available to faculty, instructors, and students in Spring of 2012. Blackboard will remain available until August 31, 2012.
To access Moodle, go to http://moodle.pacificu.edu and user your PUNetID and Password to log in.
Faculty and staff can create a course site using My Account.
