VLE Home Tab – beta update

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.

VLE Home tab: New enrolments tool

Today we have released a beta version of a new module and organisation enrolments list on the VLE Home page.

This has been developed to produce faster loading time for ‘power users’ and also builds in changes requested by School and Faculty Reps.

You’ll notice organisations now have their own tab and the list can be searched in the same way as the modules list. Staff will also see all of their module enrolments together, regardless of role.

The modules list shows the last 2 years by default, select ‘Everything’ to see older modules or those without a year.

An updated version of the guide is also available:

VLE staff data feed temporarily suspended

Staff may be aware that many staff 12/13 module enrolments were temporarily made unavailable this morning. The issue occurred as a result of amendments made in Banner to staff module data yesterday (05/02/2013).  To rectify this in the VLE we have reverted to staff module enrolment data that was valid on the 04/02/2013.

Investigations are underway as to a resolution. In the meantime we have suspended the staff module data feed only, meaning no changes to staff module data in Banner will be updated in the VLE until further notice.

Student enrolments are not affected by this.

Student and staff enrolment feeds

Updates of student enrolments and staff assignment data from BANNER have been run daily since 13/11/2012.

These have not caused any issues and will continue to run as normal.
