ION Professional Development courses are located on our learning management system, Moodle. Whether you are taking a course for CEUs or graduate credit from UIS, your course materials are located on the Moodle site. Participants are added to the Moodle courses about 48 hours prior to the course start date. You will receive a welcome email and login instructions when you have been enrolled in your course.
