ITS are happy to announce that Moodle and Mahara are back online following our annual upgrade to release 3.11.
Note: Due to User Acceptance Testing flagging some issues we decided to roll back to Moodle 3.10 and attempt this again in August 2022 – Date 11/08/2022
Countdown until upgrade is complete
We will be performing a swap out from our current Moodle environment 3.10 to our newly prepared 3.11 Moodle environment, performing database clean-ups where possible, organising some basic housekeeping on the platform, archiving any old unnecessary plugins, adding new plugins that have been requested over the year and checking for code fixes including performing User Acceptance Testing (UAT) prior to relaunch.
How does it affect you?
We will be suspending access to YSJ Moodle and Mahara through deep linking at 5:00 pm on Wednesday 10th of August 2022 and bringing the service back online Thursday 11st August 2022 at 5:00 pm. This means that the system will be inaccessible during the upgrade period.
What if I need something from Moodle
ITS advise that you download any materials, links and save them to a YSJ solution like OneDrive in advance. To prevent any teaching or learning interruptions.
#Quicktip: OneDrive is a perfect place to store any files that you may need.
