Summer Moodle upgrade information

As part of UAL ongoing efforts to improve Moodle, the UAL Digital Learning Support team have begun work to upgrade Moodle to the latest version (4.1) this July. The upgrade will update the look and feel of the dashboard (Moodle’s home page) and enhance the user experience. 

The upgrade will slightly alter and improve some other interface aspects within Moodle sites. The LCC Digital Learning team are working behind the scenes with the central team and other colleagues across the university to ensure a smooth transition to this improved version of Moodle. Please follow the link to the UAL Canvas article.

We would be happy to attend any team meetings if you would like to learn more about the project, or to start planning for the 2 days of downtime. In the meantime, for further information, contact us on: 

Downtime details: 
Upgrade will take place the week of 3rd of July (this will include Collaborate Ultra, Blackboard Ally and other Moodle integrated tools.)
Upgrade: 4th of July, Tuesday.
Back up day: 5th   July, Wednesday – pencilled in too in case there is any need to follow things up
