This is a message for continuing students – those just starting out on the programme can safely ignore!
As mentioned last week, the MSc blog site (where your IDEL blogs are) has moved to a new hosting space. It was previously at holyroodpark.net, but you’ll now find it at http://elearningblogs.education.ed.ac.uk/oldelgg/elgg . Apart from the new address, eveything should be exactly the same.
Your existing username and password will continue to work – however, you may find (like me!) that you have forgotten one or the other of them (hint: they are probably not your EASE login details)!
If you’ve forgotten your password but remember your username or the email address you used to create your account, you can simply go to the password reset page and enter one of these. You’ll be sent an email to confirm your password change.
If you have forgotten your username, try searching for your name in Elgg. The result that comes up will show you your username in the URL.
If that doesn’t work, drop me an email and I’ll be able to help!
Please let me know if you run into any problems or peculiarities. And remember, you will have an account created for you on the shiny new blog site at http://elearningblogs.education.ed.ac.uk/ in the next few weeks, so you can switch over to using it at any time after that, if you wish.
