QMplus January Release

Due to semester based exams in early January, the QMplus January Release has been pushed back to  Tuesday, 21st January 2020, between 7am-9am. The updates to QMplus includes a mix of bug fixes, maintenance chores and new features. For more information, see QMplus January 2020 Release. (Please keep checking this page as some developments are still in progress and will not be finalised for a couple more weeks.)

 

The E-Learning Unit’s 12 Tips of Christmas

The E-Learning Unit staff have put their collective heads together to create 12 E-Learning Tips of Christmas which we encourage you to try out or take a look at. These tips span QMplus,  QMplus Media and Q-Review, covering topics such as accessibility and including a few time saving tricks.

 

E-Learning Support for Students over Christmas

A quick reminder that the E-Learning Unit will be providing support via The Helpdesk over the Christmas period (3 hours per day on the 24th, 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th and 31st of Dec) to ensure that learning resources are accessible to the students and any technical issues are resolved whilst they are revising. Further information for staff on semester based exam support can be found on ARCS’s FAQ page.
