IMPORTANT: scheduled learn.gold and Mahara downtime 4th-5th September

on-off symbolHello all,

From 4pm on Tuesday 4th September learn.gold will become unavailable while it is moved to a new server along with Mahara.

The following sites will be unavailable:

learn.gold.ac.uk
mahara.gold.ac.uk
grad.gold.ac.uk
artportfolio.gold.ac.uk
community.gold.ac.uk

This is part of IT Services' virtualisation project to move Goldsmiths services onto a modern, faster environment with better resilience and energy efficiency. After some manual adjustments and testing, learn.gold is due back up around lunchtime on Wednesday 5th September with Mahara and the other sites shortly afterwards.

So that's 4pm Tuesday 4th September to lunchtime on Wednesday 5th.

Apologies for the inconvenience - we've chosen this time to avoid deadlines for assessed work submitted on learn.gold.

Yours,

Mira and Pete

Mira,

I know we are moving to Moodle 2.3. What version are we currently running?

Thanks!

Hi,

For the time being we remain on Moodle version 2.2.2, so when learn.gold returns (lunchtime Wednesday 5th) you'll find it as you left it.

Yours,

Mira
