Virtual Campus Update (Nightingale to NHSUK) September-2020
Virtual Campus Update
The screenshots below are to give you a brief overview of how the Virtual Campus (VC) will change in September 2020. The VC is being updated to a new version of Moodle and theme which helps make the site more accessible, both to those who use alternative technologies to access it (e.g. screen readers) and from different devices (e.g. tablets or mobile phones).
You can find out more about the redesign in this Digital Team blog item.
The login screen now follows a similar layout to other Leadership Academy sites. The username, password and Log in buttons are available as before.
This page changes the most in the new theme; everything you need is still available however! Please note the main areas that have moved:
- For ‘Home’, use the Sidebar ‘Site Home’ menu link or the ‘Home’ link at top of each page
- User Profile, Messaging and Notifications are all available in the top bar alongside the ‘Search’ option; click on the magnifying glass to show it if you can’t already see it. Enter your search term and click on the magnifying glass icon or press return to be taken to a results page; you can then filter or refine further.Programme Content is still available to you in the main panel, or use the Sidebar Menu to the left of the screen (this will be available from anywhere on the site).
Some areas of the VC may have pop-up User Tours to highlight changes or features; you will see them the first time you access that page, and can reset and show them again using the link at the bottom of the VC (not available on every page).
Once you access the main content on the VC, you’ll find some differences in how text and links look, but the structure of the content hasn’t been changed so navigation should feel familiar. The notes from the Dashboard apply to menu layouts and the search options. Other links on the right-hand side (including the Calendar, Upcoming Events and TurnItIn Twitter feed) are now available by scrolling down to below the main content.
