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.

The comfort level for a beta product will differ from person to person, so we have decided that both should be available while we polish LumiNUS up for actual launch.

Running both concurrently also allows LumiNUS to gradually deal with actual-use load.

Choosing between LumiNUS or IVLE?

We encourage you to choose either LumiNUS or IVLE for each module.

  1. If you record new Web Lectures (webcasts), you must use LumiNUS for Web Lectures as the Web Lecture system is only in LumiNUS. Please refer to the Web Lecture FAQ for more details.
  2. If you use the Project tool, it is only available in IVLE. There is no Project tool in LumiNUS. However, Evaluation tool is currently in development for LumiNUS.
  3. Are you co-teaching the module? Have a discussion with your co-teachers about where to host your module.
  4. How comfortable are you (and your students) with new technology?
  5. Is your tolerance of bugs low or high?
  6. What is your class size? If it is small, you might considering using LumiNUS.
  7. Is your use of IVLE mostly passive (e.g. announcements, distributing lecture material, collecting assignments) or does it involve grading (e.g. online quizzes, forum participation marks etc.)? If you use IVLE in a mostly passive manner, you may consider switching to LumiNUS.

We do not encourage you to host one module on both LumiNUS and IVLE. However, in some situations, it may be inevitable. Please read a possible scenario suggesting how to resolve these situations.

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. We discourage setting up the module on both LumiNUS and IVLE.

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 AY 18/19 as IVLE is scheduled to go into read-only mode in AY 19/20.

Are there any tools in LumiNUS that will not be available in IVLE?

Web Lecture Recording

New Web Lectures (or webcasts) are not in IVLE as of the start of AY18AY 18/19. New Web Lecture recording will only be available in LumiNUS.

This is because we are moving to a new Web Lecture system, which has been integrated into LumiNUS but not IVLE.

Academic staff who want to use Web Lectures should use LumiNUS for their modules.

For those use Web Lectures who are not ready to move to LumiNUS, you will need to:

  • Create a module in LumiNUS and IVLE.
  • Set up your module in IVLE as per normal.
  • Set up your module in LumiNUS, hiding all the tools except Web Lecture.
  • Apply for Web Lecture as per normal.
  • In IVLE, create weblink(s) to your module's Web Lectures in LumiNUS.

That said, we encourage Web Lecture users to stick to using one platform - LumiNUS.

For more details, please visit our web lecture FAQ.
