UoPeople Upgrades Student Learning Management System!


University of the People is pleased to announce we have officially upgraded the University of the People’s Student Learning Management System (Moodle) from version 1.9 to version 2.3. This is a significant upgrade which is now live! If you are an enrolled student, please visit the site to see the improvements including a more modern and streamlined appearance and key features such as:

•Completion tracking: This feature will allow students to see which assignments students have completed or viewed.

•Mobile View: This feature presents an interface optimized for mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets.

•Drag-n-drop: Files can be dragged and dropped into the interface (Note: this does not work with Internet Explorer 9, but will when version 10 is released)

•Editor: The Moodle editor has been completely updated with a more advanced and easy-to-use editor.

UoPeople looks forward to continuously improving the management systems of the University to ensure a pleasant and efficient quality learning experience for all our students. 

About President Shai Reshef

Starting in 1989, Shai Reshef served as chairman of the Kidum Group, a test preparation company, which he sold in 2005 to Kaplan, one of the world’s largest education companies. While chairman of Kidum, he built an online university affiliated with the University of Liverpool, enrolling students from more than 100 countries; that business was sold to Laureate, another large for-profit education company, in 2004. A vessel for universal higher education, UoPeople has the enormous potential to function as a global stimulus package, reaching even the most remote and poorest places on earth. Our ultimate mission is to democratize higher education and, if the past two years are any indication, this is not merely a pipe dream.
