Moodle has been restored

December 10th, 2019

Message sent on behalf of Professor Sarah O’Hara, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education and the Student Experience, and David Hill, Chief Digital Officer.

Dear colleagues,

Moodle has been restored and is now live. You and your students have access to modules, lecture notes and most learning resources. Any updates or changes made in Moodle will now be saved.

Moodle can be accessed at

Your students can submit assignments through the Moodle assignment dropbox. Currently, they cannot submit their work through Turnitin – this submission assignment dropbox is not visible to students.

We recognise that some colleagues will have part-marked work in Moodle. To ensure students don’t see incomplete marking, we have turned off student access to marks. We will keep you updated on when this will be restored.

If your students have missed assignment submission deadlines while Moodle has been unavailable, please assure them they will not be penalised. All submission deadlines have been revised – please check our Current Students webpages for more detail.

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. Colleagues who require further marking time due to work commitments and annual leave are asked to agree dates with their Head of School, and to make sure your students are aware.

Changes made within Moodle between 5pm on Wednesday 4 December and 1pm on Thursday 5 December may not have been saved. Colleagues and students affected by this will be contacted directly by Information Services or Learning Technologies.

We are compiling FAQs on specific queries that have been raised by staff and students so far. These are available on the Learning Technologies pages. These will be updated over the coming days as more queries are raised.

Please accept our sincerest apologies for the disruption.
