EITP Online Transition - Weekly Update 11/1/13
The EI Training Program is posting this update to keep you informed as to what is happening with the transition of our online training system to a new learning management system.
The good news is that we are making progress and re-opened Online Systems Overview for registration on 10/31/13. As for all of our other online offerings, we hope to have them open for registration by the end of next week. We will continue to keep you posted via email, news posting, facebook, and through the help of the Illinois EI Partners (i.e. Provider Connections).
Here is what you need to know:
The EITP has been running reports to preserve all registration and attendance information from our previous learning management system. Please note that all online learners are responsible for maintaining a portfolio of their past (and future) certificates of completion.
The new learning management system will require all online learners to have a "Moodle" account. EITP will create an account for all online learners who participated in any of our online offerings in the last 12 months and notify account holders via email next week if/when your new Moodle account has been created. Each user will then need to set up a unique password for your Moodle account.
If you do not receive an email from us regarding your new Moodle account by the end of next week please check your spam folder to see if it is there. If a Moodle account isn't created for you then you will have the opportunity to request one be created once you've registered for one of the EI Training Program's online courses using a link included in every confirmation email.
We encourage you to view a short module introducing Moodle and some of the features necessary to enroll and navigate our online events by visiting this link: https://webmedia.edu">Click Herecation.illinois.edu">Click Here/eitp/welcome_to_moodle/
We will continue to update our website with answers to frequently asked questions around this transition. Please visit this link should you have additional questions: Click Here/page.aspx?item=313.
We appreciate your continued patience and will keep you updated as we are able throughout this transition.
