Some of you may have noticed that we have been trialling a beta version of a new module and organisation enrolment list on the VLE Home page since April this year.
The Modules list was re-developed to produce faster loading times, add in the ability for organisations to be searched in the same way as modules, while building in some changes suggested by School and Faculty VLE Reps.
This beta phase is now over. As a result of your feedback we have made one incremental change to the beta list: it now shows only the current year by default.
Some staff also fed back that entries are no longer remembered in the Search field when you log out of the VLE (filter persistence). While this feature was popular with some users, in practice it did cause a disproportionate number of issues for staff and students who would forget they were seeing a filtered list and would then have difficulty finding their modules.
However filter persistence still is a great idea and it would be useful if you could choose to remember your search terms if you want to – so it’s definitely on the todo list! (perhaps with a visual indicator to make it clear to users they were seeing a filtered list).
When we have development capacity, we’ll look at this again.
Thank you to everyone who gave feedback.
