Scheduled LMS maintenance: Friday 14 December 2018

Important update: LMS maintenance change of date to Friday 14th December

Due to an extension of the University supplementary exam period, the scheduled LMS maintenance period has been moved back by one day. LMS maintenance will now take place on Friday 14 December, with the LMS unavailable to all staff and students between 7am and 5pm on this day.

The LMS will be unavailable between 7am and 5pm on Friday 14 December for essential maintenance work as per the LMS scheduled maintenance window. Staff and students are advised to review any arrangements for assessment, online learning or teaching events. If required, staff and students should download any subject materials beforehand including Readings Online. Lecture Capture recordings can be accessed during the maintenance window either directly from https://echo360.org.au or via the Echo360 mobile app.

For your awareness, there is now in effect an LMS change freeze for staff wishing to add new external services leading up to the December 13 LMS maintenance window. This is to allow us to adequately test the new version of the LMS prior to this maintenance window. Examples of external services teaching staff have requested to in the past are WileyPLUS, McGraw-Hill Content and Piazza. Such requests will be serviced again after the maintenance window.

Please note: the MSPACE LMS at https://gomelb.unimelb.edu.au/ will not be affected by the maintenance window; only access to the primary University of Melbourne LMS at https://lms.unimelb.edu.au/ will be affected.

Our thanks for your patience while we undertake this essential maintenance work of our current LMS. We apologise for any inconvenience.

If you have any queries resulting from this downtime, please submit a support request.
