Resource Lists

You may have spotted that the Resource List links disappeared from all the modules you are taking as a student or looking after as a member of staff. The cause we know was an update to the underlying tool in Succeed which links the Succeed module  to the corresponding Resource List but why this happened we do not understand. We are working with the providers of Succeed (Blackboard) to understand the causes so that it can be avoided in the future.

In the meantime, we have developed some software to add the links back into modules and was run in this morning (Friday 10th June) and so the links are now back. The one item that can not be guaranteed is placing the links back in the same position in the left-hand menu but it will be there.

The My Resource Lists panel also was removed from My Succeed at the same time and this needs to be added back via Add Panel, My Resource Lists.
