Scheduled Maintenance Wednesday September 11

We are pleased to report all systems are stable.

On Wednesday, September 11, 2019, the IT department will be performing a monthly update that will prevent on campus access to VIULearn, VIUTube, and VIUBlogs for up to 15 minutes at a time during the maintenance windows. Maintenance is scheduled from 6:00 am to 7:30 am and from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm. For more information please see https://viu-it.statuspage.io/.

Users who are accessing our systems from home may experience challenges logging in if attempting to sign in during the maintenance window.

VIUTube Media Unavailable

At this time, you may not be able to view media that is usually available on VIUTube. This is a result of a challenge with the recent update which our service vendor, Kaltura, is still working to fix. Videos which are embedded in VIULearn or on external websites should play as expected, though links may not function.

If you are looking for a specific media file, please send an email to learnsupport@viu.ca with as much detail as possible and we will provide you with a direct link to view your media file or an embed code so you can add that media to your course or website.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

VIUTube Not Accessible

Update: UBC is still working to resolve issues on their servers resulting in VIUTube (http://viuvideos.viu.ca) not loading at this time.  Videos which are embedded in VIULearn or on external websites should now play as expected.  We apologize for the inconvenience and will provide another update by 9:30 am Wednesday June 19.
