Private: 2015 QMplus Upgrade menu

QMplus Upgrade date – Email sent on 17/02/15


Last year July QMplus was upgraded to its current version, Moodle 2.6.2 (see last years upgrade pages). Since then, the Moodle community has released version 2.7 and version 2.8 with more new features and updates to previous functionality.

The IT Services and E-Learning teams are preparing to upgrade QMplus again, to the latest version 2.8, during the summer of 2015. This involves setting up test environments, applying QMplus themes and development, and testing before deployment to the new upgrade environment. There is a very small window within which this work can be carried out.

The release of the upgrade is being planned for the week of 20th July 2015.

As carried out last year, the live production environment will be placed in read-only mode while we backup and transfer all data. It is expected that the current QMplus live environment will be in read-only mode on Monday and Tuesday, then QMplus will be re-directed to the new environment by the end of Wednesday, 22nd July 2015.

Please can you make a note of these dates, and schedule your activities around this planned piece of work.

More information will be sent out between now and the upgrade, and will shortly be available on our website.

Best Wishes,
