WebLearn unavailable on THURSDAY 12 September 2013 from 7-9am

It is planned to upgrade WebLearn to version 2.8-ox7.1 on Thursday 12th September 2013 from 7-9am. There will be no service during this period.

This emergency upgrade will add functionality to WebLearn so that it rewrites pages in order to display content and links that would otherwise be blocked by Firefox 23 enhanced security measures. This will mean that the enhanced security of Firefox and future releases of Chrome will, in the main, not prevent students from accessing their course material.

We would strongly suggest that Local WebLearn Coordinators and anybody who has the maintain or contribute role on one or more sites read the WebLearn blog post on the implications of the tightening up of security within the most popular web browsers.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this essential work may cause
