It is VERY IMPORTANT that you pay attention to file sizes when uploading materials to Moodle. Not only is this important to reduce the load on our Moodle servers on campus, it is important to keep the files small enough that students will be able to download them at home or wherever they are. In most cases, downloads on home network connections will be much slower than they are on campus.
We have set the file upload limit on the Moodle server to 128MB per file. You will not be able to upload files larger than this limit, and will receive an error message if you try. Please use the guidance in this document to reduce your file sizes. Even if your file is under 128MB, we highly recommend that you go through these compression steps. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
The purpose of this online guide is to share resources that enable Connecticut College faculty to continue instruction in the event classroom instruction is interrupted.
We recommend reviewing "11 Things to Consider when Moving Your Class Online," as you begin your foray into online teaching, developed by the Center for Teaching & Learning, Karen Gonzalez Rice, and Anthony Graesch. In addition, the Moodle site available to Connecticut College faculty, Resources for Academic Continuity, includes resources and a forum for discussion.
