Moodle 3:8 Update to Key Dates

Following changes to dates for assessment, resits and assessments boards, Information Technology has made some changes to the previously advertised Moodle maintenance.

Moodle will now be unavailable from 8pm Friday 17th July to 8am Monday 20th July 2020, this is to update Moodle to the latest release (v3.8) and optimise the database.

During this time, Moodle will be unavailable and you will not be able to access modules or run any activities on Moodle.

If you need access to any Moodle content over this weekend, you will need to download it in advance of the downtime.

Watch days (at risk period)

We categorise the Monday and Tuesday as ‘watch’ days, where the system will be monitored closely, but should be running as usual.

What’s changing?

There are a few important feature changes and a number of small improvements in Moodle 3.8. The big-ticket items are the improvements to Forums, including the ability to grade Forum contributions, and the initial steps to integrate H5P (interactive content) into Moodle.

We’ll be providing more details on the improvements in our Moodle 3.8 blog series over the next month.
