Read only version of Moodle now available

December 8th, 2019

The University is continuing to experience IT issues. Information Services are treating this as a priority and have been working through the weekend to restore Moodle as soon as possible.

A temporary read-only version of Moodle is available at, giving you and your students access to some of your learning and revision materials while we continue to work on restoring full access to Moodle.

The temporary read-only version of Moodle will allow you and your students to look at documents and resources. However, students will not be able to submit assignments or post to discussions, and some links and activities will not be available.

Anything you or your students submit or change will not be saved in this read-only version, and will be unavailable when the full live version is restored. This includes quizzes, which can be completed for revision purposes. However, answers will not be saved. Talis reading lists are still available via Moodle.

The read-only version is based on the content in Moodle at 5.50pm on Wednesday 4 December. This means that any changes that you or your students made in Moodle from this time on Wednesday will not be visible in the read-only version.

Colleagues who need advice about read-only Moodle should contact the Learning Technologies team at

We appreciate that these issues may have an impact on coursework submission deadlines. Students have been informed that they will not be penalised for late submissions.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the disruption. Updates are available at The next update will be at 11am on Monday 9 December.
