Keep Calm and Moodle 2.4 On
Adelphi Moodle system will be updated to Moodle 2.4 during Memorial Day weekend and Moodle will be unavailable from 5/24 to 5/26. The upgrade will make Moodle a more robust teaching and learning platform. Enhancements include drag-and-drop uploading of files, a rubric-generator, marking guides, and workshop activities for peer review and collaboration.

This video tutorial and a quick guide (in PDF) will walk you through adding narration to a PowerPoint lecture or presentation.
