Mount Online Learning Platform Maintenance and Upgrade Activities
The Teaching and Learning Center and Online Learning (TLCOL) and IT&S are committed to ensuring that the teaching and learning technologies used by faculty and students at the university are properly maintained and upgraded on a regular basis.
Maintenance periods are scheduled in advance and occur outside of class start and end dates and exam schedules as per the academic calendar.
- Please be reminded that based on the academic calendar term dates, TLCOL and IT&S will be performing important upgrade, maintenance and security tasks in Moodle in between each term.
- Maintenance periods are chosen based on the last day of classes, exam schedules, and grades needing to be submitted to the Registrar’s Office.
- During these maintenance periods, Moodle will be unavailable to faculty and students.
- Normally, the maintenance period is between 2-3 days depending on the level of work being completed.
- The dates are communicated as soon as possible and in several ways – Moodle Dashboard, Moodle login screens, email to faculty, TLCOL Intranet site, TLCOL website, TLCOL newsletter and the Campus Bulletin.
- If you are teaching a course outside of the regular academic calendar dates and you require the use of Moodle and Ultra during this time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss possible alternatives.
