DLE Project Updates

Project Updates as of 14 February 2018

Top Hat 

Tests are being finalised for the Single Sign-On and Presentation Tool client configurations. The LLI are finalising the staff and student user guides and the high level plan for the remaining enablement activities (training, support, communication etc). Preparation for User Acceptance Testing is underway.  Information assurance and Risk confirmed the Top Hat tool could reside on the US server. Delays may be introduced regarding the internal contract review which is underway and taking longer than expected.

Blackboard Template

The socialisation of the revised Blackboard templates is near completion. The feedback is due to be collated and the final updates confirmed.  Any requests to deviate from the revised templates will be raised with the respective Academic Directors.

Blackboard Restructure

The team visited Brighton University on the 24 January and reviewed their approach and lessons learned for the SITS module and Blackboard course site mapping.  Following this visit the project team have simplified the solution.  Approval for this change and to stagger the delivery across two phases spanning two years was obtained from DLE Steering Group on 18 January and 12 February.

The detailed design of this solution is underway and the planning and resource confirmation for the next phase of work is due to commence shortly.
