Change of date – MyBeckett upgrade

Mybeckett

We recently publicised that we were due to carry out an upgrade to MyBeckett starting on Monday  31 July.  Unfortunately a technical issue with the new version has meant that we have decided to postpone the upgrade until early January 2018.

Even though we are unable to carry out the full upgrade we will still be making some changes to the system:

New / updated tabs for students

Jobs

The new Jobs tab gives students access to Jobs, Placements and Opportunities resources and key contacts. It’s been redesigned and replaces the current Employability tab.

Support

Replacing the current Help tab, the Support tab brings together Academic Support and ‘Student Life’ Support options and contacts e.g. Money, Accommodation, Wellbeing etc.

New / updated tabs for staff

Staff Home

Last year, we developed the Course tab for students – a personalised homepage on MyBeckett containing some key Course related information.

This year, staff will have access to a Staff Home tab, giving access to key information when you log in. This tab will replace the current Home and Groups tabs.

Research

Staff will be given access to a new Research tab to complement a similar tab that is already available for Research Students. It will help you to get involved in Research, find information about resources, manage and update your information, and provide links to Library Research support.

Other changes

The scheduled Turnitin and PebblePad upgrades will still go ahead as planned, as part of this upgrade Turnitin will be unavailable on Saturday 5th August between 15:00 and 21:00.

The existing Blackboard App “Mobile Learn” will be unavailable from 1 August and will be replaced with a new updated App available on all iOS, Android and Windows devices.
