Sage Online Concierge
The goal of the Sage Online Concierge (SOC) is to assist in the increased and enhanced usage of technology for on-campus faculty, in order to enhance teaching and learning at The Sage Colleges. SOC will accomplish this by creating an extensive program of proactive technology training, online best practices, and being available on campus, for the campus.
As of May 17, 2014, The Sage Colleges will be migrating to Moodle 2.4. In order to gain access, you will need to take MT 202. When signing up for MT202, go to http://training.learninghouse.com/. We are a "qualified partner institution," so you can register for your course by "clicking here" in that section. Once you register, The Learning House will send you a username and password within 1 business day. At that time, you will be able to log in and take the course. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
