Hi everyone,

We will be conducting an infrastructure upgrade on EIT’s Moodle site.

What is happening?

We will be migrating our Moodle site to a new and improved server. The goal of this upgrade is to both enhance the security and flexibility of our Moodle site.

Preserving both the integrity and security of our students’ data is something we take very seriously at EIT. The new infrastructure has a range of pre-configured security features that provide industrial grade firewall protection, system alerts for malicious activity, and frequent anti-virus scans. We also have the capability now of facilitating security patches with ease; enabling us to stay up-to-date with the latest security trends, while also ensuring we can streamline our future maintenance period.


How does this impact you?

Moodle will be unavailable on the 16th of June at 1AM UTC for a period of 2 hours.

All Learning Support Officers are aware of this downtime, and all BlackBoard sessions will be rescheduled if it occurs throughout this time. If you need any materials throughout this time, then please make sure you download them from Moodle prior to this maintenance period.


If you have any additional questions then please get in touch with your LSO.

The Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) is dedicated to ensuring our students receive a world-class education and gain skills they can immediately implement in the workplace upon graduation. Our staff members uphold our ethos of honesty and integrity, and we stand by our word because it is our bond. Our students are also expected to carry this attitude throughout their time at our institute, and into their careers.
