Reminder: Moodle Downtime and Upgrade on August 14, 2023

Moodle will be down on Monday, August 14, 2023, while LITS completes the final steps of upgrading to version 4.2:

  • The Moodle interface will be updated, but content on (including fall 2023 courses) and that URL will NOT change.
  • Access to Moodle Archive ( will end. Teachers who want personal back-up copies of courses on this site should create them ASAP. LITS has archived back-ups of fall 2017-summer 2020 academic courses and will continue to copy them into new Moodle shells on request after August 15.

Want a sneak preview of the new interface? Log into our Moodle 4 sandbox using one of these username (password) combinations:

  • Student view sample course — lpalpantine (SithLord!83) or dvader (IAmYourFather!80)
  • Instructor sandbox – okenobi (JediMaster!77) or lskywalker (JediRule!83)

We will provide details about the changes, video demos, and user tours with the upgrade and in-person support will be available by appointment and at a drop-in event on August 28.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us via the Help Desk (, 610-526-7440).
