Current Service Status

All systems normal.

*(All times in Eastern time zone)

 

No maintenance scheduled.

02/16/2017 05:00am Eastern – Upstream Internet access is returning to normal. We suspect that lingering issues may remain. We will continue monitoring for issues, but at this point in time hosted sites should be working again.

02/16/2017 04:50am Eastern – 

Upstream routing and Internet issues have returned are causing connectivity problems to one of our data centers. Not all users may be affected, as the problem seems localized to only some ISPs and geographic regions. Engineers are working on this issue, and the problem is caused by factors beyond, or outside of our data center.

02/16/2017 04:01am Eastern –

Some clients are experiencing a disruption of service this hour.  We are working as quickly as we can to resolve the issue and apologize for any inconvenience.

For more information about maintenance windows indicated here or to report other unrelated issues, please contact our support team via the Elearning Experts support portal.

Regular and Requested Upgrades

Software Upgrades Maintaining software is an essential part of ensuring a fully functional, bug-free e-learning environment.

Known Security Issues

It is the policy of Elearning Experts to correct known security issues automatically and as quickly as is feasible for all clients.

Maintaining the most current version of software

Per your contract, we work with our clients to perform regular minor point upgrades (upgrading from 2.7.8 to 2.7.9, for example, would be a minor point). Minor or major point upgrades are also scheduled as soon as they are released if security issues are involved.

Major Version Upgrades

We honor client requests for version upgrades and also perform testing if your installation has non-standard features, customization or other circumstances. We also provide training and consultation on new features and how to best adapt your practices to those changes.

Upgrade Costs

Depending on your contract and type of service, your options regarding scheduling upgrades may vary, in terms of frequency and cost.

For example, as a standard hosting client you will enjoy free regular minor point upgrades if no testing is necessary.

We always examine all newly released minor and major point upgrades for stability before we present the option to our clients.

How to know what changes come with the release

Release Notes

Lists of features and bug fixes are always provided by Moodle and Totara along with the “release” of an upgrade to help you determine if consulting or training will be necessary.

How to determine your current LMS version

For Moodle or Totara

checkversion

Your version is in your Site Administration menu >> Notifications page, under the LMS logo.

How to request a version upgrade or plugin installation

A New Version

If you find a feature in a later version will benefit your elearning environment, submit a support ticket with your request.

We will evaluate your site configuration and either schedule an upgrade at a time that suits you, or we will determine what level of testing and/or development work will be required preceeding your upgrade.

Testing your site will likely be necessary if you have customizations or theme settings that may be affected by the new version and will be managed through your support contract.

Plugins

Logo for Moodle PluginsMoodle plugins are maintained at moodle.org/plugins. Most Moodle plugins also work in Totara, although Totara does include functionality that has to be added to Moodle as a plugin, if available.

If you have a function that you’ve been wishing for, check the plugins site to see if a member of the global Moodle community has provided one. Copy the url from that plugin’s page and submit a support ticket with  your request. We will check out the stability of the plugin and unless it requires testing for your site, we will schedule that plugin installation as soon as possible!
