Moodle Refresh for 2019

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

What do you need to do?

If you have any concerns about the above refresh dates please contact LTI on

We will send further reminders as we approach the refresh dates, but if you have any questions at this point, please do not hesitate to contact us. Also, visit our Moodle end of year arrangement (Moodle refresh) page which provides detailed information and FAQs of the process.

Call for Applications: LTI Grants – SPARK! & IGNITE!

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS!  Do you have a great project in mind to enhance your students’ learning with technology? Then why not get funding with one of our grants!

Learning Technology and Innovation (LTI) is currently accepting applications for projects that will take place in the academic year 2019/20 through its SPARK! & IGNITE! grants’ scheme, with an aim to support digital pedagogies and innovative uses of technology for the benefit of students’ learning.

There are two types of grants: SPARK!, which offers funding up to £3,000 for small-scale projects and IGNITE!, which offers funding up to £10,000 for large-scale projects (with the potential to have a substantial and lasting impact on teaching, learning and assessment at programme level). These grants are open to all academic staff at the School, as well as to programme or course teams (or whole departments).


The DEADLINE for applications is Friday 8 March 2019 (however we do encourage academics to discuss their project ideas and submit a draft application before the deadline). For more information, visit our website:

Do you want some inspiration for your future project idea? Check the SPARK! or IGNITE! winners of previous years on our website.
