We are looking at moving from our current vle to moodle for september... i know the timeframe i have is far from ideal, however our moodle test has gone really well and we can see the benefits moodle offers.
We have installed moodle and got it up and running, my query was more of a technical one rather than software based... We are running server 2003 on our student network with active directory, however we are looking at setting up moodle outside the college (to ensure availability of the service) on top of moodle we will require student email...moving vles means that students will loose their current address, and we were thinking of setting them up as [student_no]@[sub].[domain].ac.uk, however i'd love to hear if anyone else is setting this up differently.
Also how do people setup their student logons, we currently have a
mixture of the students name & number. Then to make matters even
more complex we don't want staff to have to manually update their vle,
we'll want to have the system fully automated... overnight jobs would
How do you make sure deleted users are deleted from moodle & the email system?
Its a big task, and i was just wondering how everyone else has gone about it?
Any help / advice on the setup, server(s) etc would be fantastic!
