As part of our on-going commitment to the provision of a robust, secure and responsive service, we would like to give staff advance notice of Moodle downtime planned for Wednesday, 20 December 2023.

Unfortunately, there is never a good time to take a busy site like Moodle offline, but the downtime is required in order to deploy new infrastructure that will, in turn, lead to improved resilience of service and automatic scaling of database and web servers at peak times.

With this in mind, we have scheduled the work over the Christmas period at a time when activity on the site is typically lower. We will of course bring the site back online at the earliest opportunity; however, we are expecting a full day’s downtime.

To keep up to date with announcements about this activity, and for all Moodle-related announcements, please subscribe to the TEL Blog.
