Edinburgh Law School uses eScript to deliver seven degree programmes offered by online distance learning: six LLM programmes and one PG Certificate. In 2016-17, there will be 200-250 students on-programme.
In addition, eScript delivers the Schools Online Continuing Professional Development (CPD) provision, with currently around 60 students per year.
It is one of a number of bespoke VLEs commissioned by academic programmes within the University. In common with many of the bespoke VLEs, it provides a highly customised user experience, with a strong sense of programme branding, but has not been built in a resilient manner. Although supported by second line support teams during standard office hours, it is not classed as High Priority in the University Disaster Recovery Classification.
The University has 2 centrally provided VLEs: Blackboard Learn and Moodle. Both these services are supported by IS and have user groups allowing colleagues who use the services input in to how they are developed. They are classed as High Priority in the University Disaster Recovery Classification and benefit from the highest level of relsilience with infrastructure located in both the University's main hosting sites.
As a result of the review undertaken by the VLE Consolidation Project (TEL038), it has been agreed with the College, that additional work will be undertaken to confirm whether Blackboard Learn or Moodle will be the destination VLE for an eScript migration.
This project will carry out this additional work and the subsequent migration.
