Prior to autumn 2021, we are launching a new, clean version of ELF that will be in use in the academic year Autumn 2021–Spring 2022. This transition is a part of the new ELF life cycle, about which we informed our colleagues a year ago when launching the pilot installation of the new life cycle, ELF 20/21.
Just as in the case of transition to ELF 20/21, course creators and teachers will need to transfer the courses they will work with in the two coming terms to the new ELF version.
What does this exactly mean?
In accordance with the information given a year ago, ELF now works witihin the frame of the new life cycle (for more on the topic go here). That means each academic year, a new, clean version of ELF is created at the beginning of the period. The advantages of such process are increased ELF security and stability, faster system response, and better data usability for analytical purposes.
How will it affect the teachers and course creators?
Teachers and course creators need to use the tool for automatic transfer of courses and with its help, transfer the courses the will work with in the coming academic period into the new ELF version.
The process will be similar to the actions needed a year ago during the transition from the old ELF3 to ELF 20/21, so there is no need to worry – everything will work similarly to what you already know from September 2020.
Launch of the ELF version for Autumn 2021–Spring 2022
The new platform is ready for the transfer of courses.
Changing the redirection of elf.phil.muni.cz
beginning of September 2021
- Since this moment, the web address elf.phil.muni.cz points to the new ELF version, which is regarded as the active one henceforth.
- The old versions (ELF3, ELF 20/21) remain accessible. Links to them can be found in the active ELF version.
Converting ELF 20/21 to read-only mode
13th of September, 2021
On Monday, the 13th of September, the ELF 20/21 will be switched to read-only mode, i.e., courses stored therein can no longer be modified. All users will retain their access rights, and will still be able to view the content of the courses or make their backups.
At the same time, the read-only mode will not restrict the possibility of transferring courses to the active ELF.
