Moodle and Rogo downtime from Tuesday 1 August

July 25th, 2017

Updated: The August downtime is now over and the full functionality of Moodle and Rogo has been restored. Thank you for your patience during this essential work. Look out for more information about the September downtime in the next few weeks.

We’d like to remind you that Moodle and Rogo will be down for a few days in the first week of August 2017. Moodle will also be down for a short period in September.

The dates and further details are below:

Moodle and Rogo downtime from Tuesday 1 August

6pm on Tuesday 1 August until 6pm on Thursday 3 August (UK time)

There will be a version of Moodle and Rogo available for student revision purposes from 8pm on Tuesday 1 August (UK time).

Students will be able to look at documents and resources but it is NOT for submitting assignments or interacting with forums. Whilst students will be able to complete some activities such as quizzes, nothing they submit or change will be saved in this revision-only version of Moodle. Anything they have changed or submitted will not be available once the full live version is restored.

Staff should NOT make any changes to Moodle during this period, or do any marking, as any changes will not be available on the live version when the system comes back online.

Students will be able to access self-tests in Rogo for revision purposes from 8pm on 1 August until 6pm on Thursday 3 August (UK time).

As a precaution, we would also recommend that staff or students download any particular resources that they need prior to 6pm on Tuesday 1 August (UK time). We will be communicating with students separately but would appreciate your assistance in passing the message on through any channels you have.

There will be a few hours at the beginning and end of this downtime window when the system will be down completely. This is to allow us to switch between the live and read-only versions of the system.

This downtime is to allow us to update the module codes for UNNC ahead of the MyNottingham go-live.

September Moodle only downtime

Wednesday 6 September – Friday 8 September (exact timings to be confirmed)

This downtime is to allow us to upgrade to Moodle 3.2 to maintain security and bring some improvements to the user experience.

If you have any questions about these two periods of downtime, please email

Thank you for your continued support as we update our systems.
