ILearn Updates & Reminders

We’re happy to report that iLearn, our course management system hosted by CSUMB, underwent a successful upgrade to a new common codebase developed at SFSU. While the system looks more or less the same on the surface, you may notice a few changes including:

  • cross-browser access to the web editor now allows for rich editing in Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer
  • improved file management allows instructors to access files for all courses and improves server performances by preventing file duplication
  • course archives for previous academic years are now hosted on a separate server

Some Helpful Reminders

Logging In

iLearn is available at: http://ilearn.miis.edu.

Course Archives Policy

  • Spring and Summer 2011 courses are archived at ay1011.ilearn.miis.edu, where “ay” stands for academic year.
  • Pre-Spring 2011 Courses continue to be archived at eLearning.miis.edu
  • Moodle course sites are backed up and archived for two years beyond the semester of instruction.

Course Rollover Requests

  • Faculty who wish to import an archived course from an archive of a previous academic term should complete the Course Rollover Request Form.

Editing Your Fall 2011 Courses

To gain editing privileges:

  1. Login to iLearn and update your profile before requesting editing privileges for your course.
  2. Email the Help Desk with the course name and names of any other instructors who need access. They also must log into iLearn before we can assign them privileges.
