 The Moodle Rollover, Archive and Upgrade is COMPLETE (July 23)

IT Services and the E-Learning Team upgraded the College Moodle service during July 21-23 2021.  The primary objective of this work was to ensure the continued security and stability of the service.  The upgrade - to version 3.10 of Moodle - also delivered a range of significant enhancements, which can be described in terms of accessibility, usability, engagement and assessment.

In addition to the upgrade, the Moodle service will be improved and extended by new tools, as requested by Schools and academic departments.  These will be rolled out throughout August and September 2021.
