Please test the next academic year's proposed Teaching Centre configuration

01 July 2019

Computing Services requests all University members who make any use at all of Teaching Centres - whether regular or occasional - to verify that their applications work as expected with the next academic year's proposed configuration.

*Where?
The test centre is HCC4, room F27 in Harold Cohen Library, building 431 on the campus map.

*When?
This test centre will be available for testing throughout July.

*Why?
If you don't test your applications now, you may be standing in front of a class when you discover that they don't work.
- This includes lecturers' applications and applications installed by running "Install University Applications".
- Please test even if you only use a browser. Changes to Windows and the browser itself may affect your applications.
- Please test even if they haven't changed. Changes to other applications may affect yours.
- Verify that your screenshots are still accurate.

*How?
View http://mwsstats.liv.ac.uk/tc/apptest.php before you go to the test centre. Here you will find:
- Directions to HCC4
- How to test
- Reported issues

*Major changes:
- Microsoft Office will change from 2016 to 2019.
- The Windows 10 build will change from Anniversary Update to October 2018 Release.
- Java will change from Oracle to OpenJDK. This is a major change.
