**UPDATE, 17.05, 14/07/2015: The VLE Upgrade is now complete and the VLE is now available to all users. Thank you for your patience while we completed the upgrade work.**
Yorkshare (the VLE) will be unavailable to all users on the Tuesday the 14th and Wednesday the 15th of July while we upgrade to the latest version of Blackboard Learn. We will be working with our service partners in IT Services to upgrade the system and bring the service back online as soon as possible. Service updates during the downtime will be available on our twitter feed.
This upgrade to the latest release of Blackboard Learn is a consolidation of the 2014 releases and will address a number of issues. The upgrade will also allow us to remain on the highest level of support with our vendor until 2017. The overall appearance and functionality of the VLE will not appear to be any different from the current version.
We would also like to remind users that the Replay (Lecture Recording) system will be unavailable on the 14th of July between 08.00 and 12.00 while upgrade work is performed.
Please pass on this information to VLE users in your department who you think may be affected.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
