Modernizing VIULearn Servers: Update Bookmarks to learn.viu.ca by April 25

What is happening?

On April 25, 2018, VIU will be updating the server information for VIULearn in order to modernize the set-up of the site.

Part of this update is a change of our primary URL from https://d2l.viu.ca to https://learn.viu.ca.

How will this affect me?

If you have created any bookmarks to pages in VIULearn (including the log in page) you will need to update your bookmark to reflect the new URL.

If you have included the URL for your course in your course outline, you will need to update the link.

There will be a short outage between 10:00 am and 11:30 am on April 25 while the modernization process is completed.

What actions do I need to take?

  • Ensure there are no online exams or assignments due between 10:00 am and 11:30 am on Wednesday, April 25, and that neither you or your students will need to access VIULearn during this window.
  • If you are online on the morning of April 25, make sure you refresh your page regularly to minimize the chance of receiving an error.
  • Be sure to save an offline copy of any work you are doing in VIULearn during this time.

Where can I go for more information?

If you have any questions about this change or need any assistance, the Centre for Innovation and Excellence in Learning will be happy to help. We are open from Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. You can email learnsupport@viu.ca or call us at 250.740.6179 (6179 from a campus phone). You can also come see us in person on the Nanaimo campus in building 305, room 511.
