As students leave for the Summer break we’re increasingly busy in the team as we prepare for the launch of the new Learning Space on September 3rd.
We’ve been continuing with our course specific sessions over the last few weeks so staff feel orientated in the new environment, and understand the expectations of modules come launch. There’s still time to book in a session if you feel you’d like more support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
After launching in September we’ll be planning in a regular release cycle to ensure tools and activities are updated and new functionality included. We’ve been working with next years academic calendar and the availability of our new service provider to ensure dates are chosen that are suitable for all. We’ve also been looking into the best ways of communicating these updates and will have more information in the coming months.
After finalising designs and building a local version, a working theme is now available on our development environment. We’ll be testing the new theme internally in the next few weeks before rolling out to the live environment.
Progress is also being made in updating our support documentation ready for the start of term. We’ll be updating all of our guidance to reflect the new environment, starting with common activities and resources.
