Planned Outage: SITS and eVision Upgrade – 05.04.17 to 07.04.17

IT Services are planning to upgrade the SITS and eVision systems between the 5th and 7th of April. The VLE has a number of dependencies on SITS and as such will be affected in the following ways during this period:

No automatic VLE user account or enrolment updates

  • No data will be updated in SITS during this period so there will be no corresponding daily updates to users or their enrolments in the VLE.
  • If you require user account or enrolment updates during this time please contact vle-support@york.ac.uk for us to action manually.

Download of student submissions from the Anonymous Assignment tool will be unavailable

  • If you are planning marking activities between the 5th and 7th then please ensure that any work is downloaded prior to the 5th as any attempts to download student submissions between the 5th and 7th will result in an error.
  • We will not be able to retrieve student submissions until SITS becomes available again on the 7th.

Please note that students should not notice any change to the VLE or its functionality during this period. They will be able to submit to submission points as normal, only the download of Anonymous Assignment submissions by staff is affected.

We will send further communications when SITS is available on the 7th and student submissions can be downloaded once more. Follow us on Twitter for the latest news.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused by this work.
