New future for Moodle: further details on the planned work

last modified Feb 25, 2019 04:17 PM
UIS plans to create a new Moodle that will host only teaching and learning content. We'll carry out the work in three steps.

As announced in January, UIS plans to create a new Moodle that will host only teaching and learning (T&L) content, to help the University meet new accessibility legislation that comes into force in September 2020.

We’ll carry out the work in the following steps:

  • Design and create the new T&L Moodle to sit alongside the current Moodle
    • Identify requirements
    • Design
    • Create and make available in summer 2020
  • Identify and move T&L content into the new T&L Moodle
    • Define T&L content
    • Identify T&L content in the current Moodle
    • Work with users to move T&L content into the T&L Moodle
  • Analyse and find alternative systems for remaining content
    • Analyse the content that remains in the current Moodle
    • Identify alternative systems to store content
    • Work with users to move content into appropriate systems

We’re expecting to support the current Moodle for several years until there is little or no content left in it, at which point it will be decommissioned. In the meantime, please continue to use it as you currently do.

We’ll be working with the University and consulting widely throughout each step in this process.
