REMINDER: VLE update coming – downtime this week

We have essential work to do on the VLE system with the installation of Service Pack 7 of the Blackboard 9.1 release which has some small additional features and fixes, including one essential to our module rollover process for 2012/13.

We’ve liaised across the University through the faculty reps and have mutually agreed with Faculties the following dates/times for the downtime:

From 7am Wednesday 11th April  to late Thursday 12th of April

Additionally, Friday the 13th April is approved if necessary to meet unforeseen contingencies.

Please do not schedule formative or summative assessment or electronic assignment hand-ins through the VLE for these times.

Do blog, repost and publicise this message widely. Here’s the permalink to this post:

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
