Dear Moodle Course Teachers,

To enhance performance of our learning management system, old Moodle courses will have to be offloaded to the Archive System. On July 15, 2015, all Moodle courses from the academic year 2013/14 (i.e., course code ended with “_2013”) will be frozen to initiate this moving process.

There are two pertinent issues that I would like to draw your attention to:

(1) To comply with section 41A(5) of the Copyright Ordinance, teachers should remove all copyrighted materials on their Moodle courses after 12 months of their uploading.
(2) Teachers will have “read-only” access to their respective archived courses for education purposes (e.g., to prepare for the next offering). They will not be able to make any changes to the content of the archived courses. Besides, students will have “read-only” access to the archived courses.
More details about the Archive System are shown in the FAQ section of the Moodle Resources Website http://moodle-support.hku.hk (click here to visit the FAQ).

If you would like to opt out of the archiving arrangement with good reasons, please send an email with detailed information about your course to eLearningTeam@hku.hk on or before July 15, 2015. Thank you.

Best Regards,
CP Lau
