December submission and marking deadlines have been revised following the now-resolved severe disruption to Moodle.
Revised marking deadlines
Because the disruption to Moodle has pushed back submission deadlines, marking return dates are also extended by five working days. This excludes University closure days – the University closes on Friday 20 December and reopens on Thursday 2 January.
If you require further marking time due to work commitments or annual leave, please agree dates with your Head of School, and make sure your students are aware.
It has been agreed that the release of marks and feedback can be pushed into the January assessment period as necessary.
Students have been informed that the release of marks and feedback may be delayed. It would be helpful if you could make your students aware if this will affect them directly.
Revised submission deadlines
Due to the now-resolved issues with Turnitin, students who were originally due to submit on Thursday 5 December have had their submission deadline extended to Friday 13 December at 3pm. This is the final revision to this deadline date.
Now that the system is restored, students should submit their work as usual, via the Moodle assignment or Turnitin assignment dropboxes.
If students were due to submit assignments on Friday 6 December, or during the week commencing Monday 9 December, submission deadlines were extended as follows:
We recognise that term finishes for the majority of students on Friday 13 December. If they are 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.
