1 “WebLearn: Migration” ITLP course 1 Feb 2pm, OUCS
All users must migrate their content from old to new WebLearn over the next year and a half.
OUCS are running a migration course every month to help with this process. There are still places on the next occurrence of the course (on 1st Feb 10). Visit: http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/itlp/courses/detail/TOVC to book a place.
2 Evaluations (survey) tool pilot – call for volunteers
The Evaluations tool allows the creation of on-line surveys which can be delivered to Oxford staff and students or to the general public. Such surveys may be used for course evaluation, obtaining feedback, questionnaires or general data gathering purposes.
If you want to be involved in the pilot of this tool then have a look at: http://blogs.it.ox.ac.uk/adamweblearn/2010/01/20/create-on-line-surveys-for-free-using-new-weblearn/ and / or send an email expressing interest to firstname.lastname@example.org
3 Closure of the Test Building
As part of the process of moving from the old to new WebLearn system, it is our intention to close the Test Building at the start of this year’s long vac.
We recommend that if you currently use the Test Building you consider either moving your material to the new WebLearn or move it elsewhere in old WebLearn with a view to moving it again to the new WebLearn at a later date.
We will be reminding you about this closure over the coming months but why not act quickly and address the issue early.
4 Request space in new WebLearn
To establish a presence in new WebLearn, each Department or College will need to authorise one or more staff members to become a ‘Local WebLearn Coordinator’ and complete the Request for an Administration Site form. If you are intending to move to the new WebLearn then at some point this form will need to be filled in.
We will be reminding you about filling in this form over the coming months but why not act quickly and address the issue early!
