Moodle fully restored – Turnitin now available

December 11th, 2019

Students can once again submit assignments through Turnitin.

Moodle has been restored to full functionality and is no longer read-only. You and your students have access to your modules, lecture notes and learning resources. Any updates or changes you make in Moodle will now be saved.

Students can submit assignments through both the Moodle assignment and Turnitin assignment dropboxes. They will also be able to see their marks as usual.

If your students submitted assignments between 5pm on Wednesday 4 December and 1pm on Thursday 5 December, they may be required to re-submit. If this is the case, they will already have been emailed by Information Services.

The revised submission deadlines mean that marking schedules will be adjusted accordingly. Students have been informed of this.

Revised submission deadlines

We previously advised that students who were due to submit on Thursday 5 December would have a new submission deadline 24 hours after the restoration of a full, live Moodle service. Now that the system is restored, students should submit their work as usual, via the Moodle assignment or Turnitin assignment dropboxes by 12noon on Thursday 12 December.

If students were due to submit assignments on Friday 6 December, or during the week commencing Monday 9 December, their submission deadlines have been extended as follows:

  • Original deadline Friday 6 December, new deadline Friday 13 December
  • Original deadline Monday 9 December, new deadline Monday 16 December
  • Original deadline Tuesday 10 December, new deadline Tuesday 17 December
  • Original deadline Wednesday 11 December, new deadline Wednesday 18 December
  • Original deadline Thursday 12 December, new deadline Thursday 19 December
  • Original deadline Friday 13 December, new deadline Friday 20 December

We recognise that term finishes for the majority of students on Friday 13 December. If they unable to submit after Friday 13 December, please ask them to inform Student Services. The University will ensure that no student will be disadvantaged as a consequence of the now-resolved issues with Moodle.
