There are three Moodle Innovate sites:

  • Innovate Now
    • Anyone with an RRU account, including students, can login to this server.
    • This server is available for anyone to create a course or import/export their courses. Anyone can test Moodle features within their course. More information on creating your own course on Innovate Now here. This server is not for testing server-wide settings or plugins, and users will not have the ability to perform testing outside of their courses.
    • Runs the current version of Moodle that is running on the credit Moodle server.
    • This server is backed-up.
    • Sometimes runs credit courses or resources for credit courses. This site can be used for long term course testing.
  • Innovate Next
    • Access to this server is limited (it is not LDAP enabled).
    • This server is for testing, including the testing of server-wide settings and plugins.
    • Runs the next version of Moodle–one version newer than the credit server.
    • This server is NOT backed-up.
  • Innovate CTET
    • Access to this server is limited (it is not LDAP enabled).
    • This server is for testing, including the testing of server-wide settings and plugins.
    • This is a clone of the credit server without the courses, users, and student data.
    • This server is NOT backed-up.

Computer Services Responsibilities

These sites are to be self managed and self supported.  Support calls should be directed back to the originator of the course in most cases.  The exceptions are for courses on the sites that are being used for credit courses.  Computer Services will support students and faculty on those courses as best we can.  CTET will also provide needed backup support as required (by service request through Computer Services).
