Minerva upgrade

Minerva is being upgraded to the latest version of Blackboard at the beginning of August. Minerva will be unavailable from 5.00 pm on Friday 6 August until Wednesday 11 August while the upgrade takes place. During this time you won’t have access to content. Access to other University systems will be unaffected. Please be sure to download any teaching materials you need for revision before upgrade begins.

An online Minerva guide for staff, highlighting changes following the upgrade, is now available, alongside a summary of key changes for staff. A guide for students has also been published.

Duo Authentication

Whenever you log in to Minerva after upgrade you’ll be prompted to complete Duo two-factor authentication. If you haven’t already signed up to Duo make sure you do so now – don’t leave it until the last minute. Find out more about Duo on the IT website.
