Dear Moodle Course Teachers,

Moodle has been in place to support the University’s electronic teaching and learning since 2011. It is a good practice to offload the old courses to the Moodle Archive System to release the loading and storage on the production server for better performance.

ITS will move all Moodle courses of the academic year 2013-14 (i.e. course code ended with “_2013”) from the production Moodle system to the Archive System in the middle of July 2015. The Moodle courses being archived will be frozen on 3 July 2015 for moving.

After the move, students, teachers and course administrators still have the “Read-only” access to these archived courses via the “My eLearning” tab of HKU Portal. “Read-only” means that users could not change course contents nor make any submissions to assignments or forums. More details about the Archive System are shown at the FAQ section of the Moodle Resources website (click here to visit).

If there are good reasons that your courses should not be moved to the Archive System this July, please send us email with detailed information to on or before 30 June 2015. Thank you for your attention.

Best Regards,
