Moodle Upgrade 2019, 26-27 July 2019

Over the summer there will be a number of outages and changes to the Moodle service. These are needed to deliver:

  • Moodle version upgrade to 3.7 on 26th July 2019 at 5pm. This will be completed on Saturday 27th July by 12pm.
  • Yearly Moodle Shapshot and consolidation of previous Snapshots to ensure GDPR compliance
  • URL changes will also be updated

To find out more on Moodle Upgrade and Moodle Snapshots take a look at our release notes and Moodle 3.7 Upgrade Page.

Late Summer Assessments - 2019

This Summer there will be a significant increase and change in the practice to the later summer assessments process: Link to Late Summer Assessment changes.

To facilitate the changing combination of end of year tasks and later summer assessments we now request all Late Summer Assessments to take place on the 18/19 Moodle Snapshot which will be created on the 26th July. Digital Education will be signposting this information so students are aware. For more information on this change please see our wiki.

The Digital Education team provide a range of UCL specific Moodle guides here. You can also browse the official Moodle guides at Moodle.org.The page 'Release Notes' lists all the latest functionality you can use with Moodle.If you are looking for information about other e-learning tools aside from Moodle and Turnitin please see the UCL E-Learning website.

Please also have a look at the E-learning Wiki for a whole range of more pedagogically focused e-learning articles.
