Site Upgrade Online Learning

Thanks to this process, the site now has much clearer menu categories and a significantly improved structure.

History of CIT: The Beginnings of Moodle at FF

note: the picture shows a newer version from 2018

Moodle was selected as a tool for use at the Faculty of Arts in 2003 as part of the Electronic Tools for Combined and Distance Learning in English project (until then, materials were provided mainly in HTML). At the time when the development of the e-learning system in IS was still in the planning stage, Moodle at the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Education (the Faculty of Education introduced Moodle only shortly after us) already contained hundreds of courses. Later, in 2007, there were already over 600 courses at the Faculty of Arts alone. However, this number also included inactive courses that were created in Moodle over a longer period of time. Today, we try to update the system every year to prevent this "hoarding of old courses", which allows the system to be more agile and to contain only those courses that are relevant.
