Moodle Winter upgrade 2022 and other news

Moodle was upgraded to version 3.11.11 on the 20th of December 2022. This was a security patch only and functionality will not change. However, part of the Moodle server hardware is being replaced, a consequence of which will mean the search function in Moodle will need to ‘re-index’ and this may take a few days to complete.

Mahara downtime

Mahara will be unavailable on Wednesday 21st December between 09:00 - 12:00 (GMT) to allow for essential maintenance.

Log-in change

As part of the upgrade, the way you log in to Moodle will change in line with other services like Zoom, the MyGlasgow Portal, and the UofG Helpdesk. This means the login screen will change to the same on those services already use.
