I am not seeing the same course material that other students are.

I am trying to access a Blackboard Collaborate Ultra recording but I cannot access the Blackboard room outside of class time.
Please bring this to the attention of your lecturer. The lecturer and his/her team would have adjusted the settings for the Blackboard room/area. These settings covers a wide range of issues including visibility of the room and access to recordings.

I am unable to connect OurVLE to the Moodle app from the Google Play Store
Our current version is not compatible with it at the moment. Once there have been changes along this line we will be sure to inform the campus community.
Please however be informed that the OurVLE page is mobile ready and adjusts for easy readability on mobile devices.

I could not complete my mid-semester exam due to connectivity issues. My electricity went and I had no Internet access to do my exam. I am asking if there is any way I could be assisted to complete my exam?
Whilst we are sorry to hear of the challenges experienced whilst doing your examinations we kindly ask that you inform your lecturers as soon as possible. It would be up to them to determine the next course of action as we are not in a position to offer a resit.

My fellow students and myself are seeing our course container but it is empty. Where is the course material?
The content of your course containers is managed by your lecturers. If you believe that you should be seeing more content please reach out to them for advice. Please also bear in mind that they may be updating the container or getting ready to share content with you in a phased basis.
