The switch from Saturn to the new Campus Solutions student records system will take place from December. Moodle and Rogo will need to be updated during this time to change the UK source of data from Saturn to Campus Solutions.
It is important to ensure that Moodle and Rogo are updated at this time so they continue to receive the latest student and module data from Campus Solutions and information in these systems remains valid and correct.
Moodle and Rogo will be completely unavailable during the following times:
Temporary revision-only versions of Moodle and Rogo will be available to support students in their revision during the following dates:
This will affect all campuses across the UK, China and Malaysia. There will a brief period of complete unavailability towards the end of the schedule before we return to the full versions of Moodle and Rogo. These dates are subject to confirmation nearer the time.
Please do not make any changes to your module pages in Moodle during this period as your changes will not be saved.
Any assignment submissions that are scheduled for this time will need to be moved as assignment submissions will not be possible in this period. Please be assured that the Learning Technologies team are in the process of contacting module convenors who have deadlines within this period.
If you plan to mark assignments during this period and have not been contacted by the Learning Technologies team, please email email@example.com so we can support you with your requirements. The team can help to answer any questions that you may have.
Temporary revision-only versions of Moodle and Rogo
The temporary revision-only version of Moodle will allow students to look at documents and resources but it is not for submitting assignments or interacting with forums or other modes of engagement. Whilst students will be able to take part in some activities such as quizzes, anything they submit or change will not be saved in this revision-only version and be unavailable when the full live version is restored.
In the temporary revision-only version of Rogo students will be able to access self-tests for revision purposes.
We recommend students download any resources they require from these systems before Monday 17 December.
The implementation of Campus Solutions will also mean a change to all UK module codes. Rest assured that it is only the module code in the title of the module that will be changing. Module content will not be affected, and links to reading lists and lecture captures will automatically be updated. Modules from 2017/18 and earlier will keep their Saturn codes.
Staff and students can view the complete list of UK module codes on the Module Codes Workspace site. This list shows the existing Saturn module codes mapped to the corresponding new Campus Solutions module codes. You can easily search this list at any time using either the existing code, new code or the title of a module.
Both staff and students will receive reminders about Moodle and Rogo over the coming weeks. We would greatly appreciate your support in disseminating this information.
