The first phase in launching the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) is to introduce Blackboard Ultra as Griffith’s new learning management system. While this change will take place over 18 months, an outage is required to conduct necessary maintenance on [email protected] ([email protected]).

[email protected] will be unavailable from 9pm Friday 9 November to Tuesday 13 November.

To minimise disruption to learning and teaching during this time, a temporary copy of [email protected] will be made available from Sunday 11 November, to give staff and students access to course content. It is important that [email protected] users, staff and students, do not make changes (such as submitting assessments or marking) in this read-only copy as they may be lost when the new system goes live.

If you believe you will need access to course material between the start of the outage (9pm Friday 9 November) and when the read-only system becomes available (Sunday 11 November), please download this content prior to 9pm Friday 9 November.

Also many tools and integrations will not be available in the temporary copy of [email protected], although some, such as Echo360 and PebblePad, may be accessed directly.
