UPDATE: Minerva Feeds

The data feed between Banner and Minerva ran successfully overnight, meaning that all staff and student enrolments should now be up to date.

We will continue to monitor the service and the data feeds over the next 24 hours to make sure everything is running as normal.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Update: Issues with Minerva

Minerva is now stable and users should no longer have access issues or experience slow loading of pages. However, feeds from Banner are currently not running, meaning staff and student enrolments to modules and organisations are not being processed. Engineers are looking at the feed issue to get it back up and running as soon as possible.

If you do encounter any other issues then please contact the IT Service Desk.

We apologies for any inconvenience caused over the past week.

How can non paid, external staff or PhD students get staff access to modules?

Non paid, external staff or PhD students often need staff access to modules to teach or grade and must get a staff IT username to use specialised tools such as Turnitin.

They will get a staff IT username which needs to be associated to a staff ID number, meaning they can be enrolled via Banner.

Faculty IT need to approve the IT user account and Central HR will have to provide the user with a Staff ID. Once this is finalised, enrolments will come from Banner overnight.

We recommend the Teaching Assistant module role for PhD Students. This allows them to edit the module/access the Grade Centre. Other roles are described in our roles guide.

Remember that if someone needs to see a module but not edit or grade, staff on the module can enrol them as a student.

Fixed: Manual enrolments & Organisation emails

Two issues introduced during the summer 2014 upgrade are now fixed:

Manual enrolments – Staff can once again manually enrol users onto VLE modules/organisations (with the student/participant role).

NOTE: Any staff and students that are either delivering or officially studying a module should continue to be added via the usual method in Banner. Further information on enrolments is available in our guide.

Email tool in organisations – It is now possible to send emails via organisations.
