Attn: all CDS Academic Staff / Researchers
Please find below details of the initial round of academic staff training sessions for the CDS VLE upgrade, to be run in advance of the go-live date of Friday 25 April.
These sessions are important particularly if you are one of the staff with module activity (pre-module preparation, teaching or assignments / marking) around the time of the upgrade, as we are keen to ensure that you are familiar with the functionality of the new interface. In the event of high levels of take-up, priority will be given to these staff. More sessions will be put on after the upgrade so that staff can familiarise themselves with the new interface before they next use the CDS VLE.
Please click on the link below for a Doodle Poll of the training dates available next week, and indicate all of the dates / times when you will be available to attend a session. If you are unable to attend any of the scheduled sessions, please indicate this by selecting Other on days where you have some availability, and we will endeavour to accommodate you. If you need priority training but are not available next week at all, please email FLSC on email@example.com.

By the end of this week, we will notify everyone who has responded of their allocated session. Please note: it is important that you respond to the poll if you wish to attend one of these early sessions, as FLSC may cancel any sessions where there is low take-up.
If you have any queries, please contact FLSC by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Note: a link to a general user guide will be distributed to all staff and students in the next few days. This brief guide will cover all that general users will need to know regarding day-to-day use of the new-look CDS VLE: where to find information from the new interface, where to access help, etc.
Thank you for your patience as we work to improve the VLE service.
