The summer upgrade of the VLE will take place on Tuesday 10th July and Wednesday 11th July as announced in our June newsletter released at the end of May. This release will introduce a responsive browser theme which will bring a new look and feel to the VLE and support for the latest Blackboard mobile app developments. The release will also bring stability and reliability improvements and there will be a small set of minor feature improvements with no new major features or functionality planned for this release.
To learn more see “What’s New in the 2018 VLE Summer Upgrade” [Google Doc].
During the upgrade, the VLE will be unavailable to all users. If you are aware of any teaching and learning activities running during this period please contact the E-Learning Development Team and we will endeavour to find a solution for you.

Unrelated to our upgrade work, TurnItIn will also be taking their service offline 16:00-00:00 BST on Tuesday 10th for maintenance. Please note that even if the VLE is back available at that time, TurnItIn will not be usable. [More TurnItIn Outage Information].
