Dear Moodle User
As we move into our quiet period over the summer, I’d like to take this opportunity to inform you that the newly formed Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Unit will be working with our Moodle hosting provider during August to upgrade our current installation of the platform.
On completion, the Trust will have the most up-to-date version of Moodle, which will be a significant step up from the version we currently use. The upgrade offers a number of innovative enhancements around online learning and will put the Trust in an excellent position to exploit the new developments in TEL appearing on the near horizon.
The TEL Unit will also begin implementing a cross-Trust strategy of support and advice on how best to utilise the affordances of Moodle and other learning technologies in education and training.
Once we have agreed an upgrade date with our supplier, I will let you know as this will involve Moodle being offline for a few hours. Be assured that the upgrade will not affect existing course areas, uploaded files, user accounts or any other asset currently hosted in the platform. However, the look and feel of the platform, as well the tools available to course creators, will be significantly improved.
With best wishes
Technology Enhanced Learning Manager
