When visiting LumiNUS, you will notice that it looks very different from IVLE.

But the changes are more than skin-deep. The entire underlying architecture and database have been changed.

These changes are significant enough to warrant a new name. Hence, LumiNUS.


Despite that, we ask for your patience and understanding if things do go wrong.

What happens to IVLE?

IVLE will run concurrently with LumiNUS during the LumiNUS beta period.

However, development of IVLE will cease. IVLE development will be limited to critical security and bug fixes.

Once LumiNUS beta period is over, IVLE will go into read-only mode. Eventually, it will be shut down.

Are IVLE and LumiNUS connected?


Why have IVLE and LumiNUS run concurrently, if they are not connected?

We want to ease academic staff into LumiNUS, so we are running both concurrently to give you time to adapt to LumiNUS.

I want to use LumiNUS during beta, but some of the features are not available. What should I do?

We advise you to continue using IVLE until the feature is available in LumiNUS.

We do not encourage you to set up your module in both IVLE and LumiNUS. This will be confusing for you and your students.

I co-teach a module with other lecturers. How should we choose between IVLE and LumiNUS?

We encourage one module to be on one platform only. Initially, your choice might be limited to IVLE, if you need a particular feature which is not yet available in LumiNUS. However, if all the co-teachers agree, you can set up your module on LumiNUS instead.

How will students know if a module is on IVLE or LumiNUS?

Academic staff will have to inform students whether your module is on IVLE or LumiNUS.

This will only affect AY18/19 as IVLE is scheduled to go into read-only mode in AY19/20.
