This morning (December 16), learn.gold had a minor update which was completed successfully and is back up and running.
Old '2.2 assignments' will be upgraded today.
This old learn.gold assignment type is being phased out and will no longer be supported by Moodle, so we need to convert all the old style learn.gold assignments to the new format, which is easier to use and more flexible.
We plan to start this later this morning (Monday 16 December). GLEU will arrange for all the old assignments to be converted to the new type. Note that Turnitin assignments will not be affected. We have tested this over previous weeks and have not encountered any problems.
We have extensive support materials including videos and 'how to' guides for staff and students on using the new assignment type and have been running informal sessions every week for staff.
