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
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:
- Login to iLearn and update your profile before requesting editing privileges for your course.
- 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.

- Help Forum: Have a quick question? Post it in the iLearn User-to-User Forum on iLearn. Your questions make the community smarter!
- Just in Time Video Training: We have access to a great new resource called Lynda.com which includes video-based tutorials for software ranging from iMovie to Excel to Moodle. Login with your Middlebury webmail credentials here to explore further: http://go.middlebury.edu/lynda
We will continue to announce updates as they develop.
