Moodle Refresh for 2019

Each year, we refresh Moodle courses, by removing all student data and students’ contributions to activities (i.e. forum posts, assignment submissions etc). This way courses are ready for the new cohort of students. Course materials uploaded by editors are not deleted. Please make a note of this year’s Moodle refresh dates.

Refresh dates:

Thursday 29 August and Friday 30 August 2019 for the majority of courses. Moodle will be unavailable for all users on these dates (including those with 499 course codes that are refreshed on  later date).

Tuesday 10th September 2019 for courses used to collect dissertation submissions (primarily those with 499 course codes). These courses only will be unavailable on Moodle all day.

If you would like your course/s to be exempt from the 2019 refresh please email
