VLE summer update – July downtime

We’ll be introducing some great new features in the VLE this Summer as part of our essential upgrade to the latest software release.

These include:

  • Negative Marking
  • A new Discussion Board
  • A better, more functional text editor with spellchecking
  • Inline document viewer for staff

and more…

This work will take place during the Summer maintenance window as agreed and ratified by the Taught Student Education Board.

The dates for the VLE downtime are as follows:

From Monday 8th July till late Tuesday 9th of July*

*Additionally, Wednesday the 10th July will be used for unforeseen contingencies.

Do not schedule formative or summative assessment or electronic assignment hand-ins through the VLE for the above dates (including the contingency day).
