The University of South Africa (Unisa) is South Africa’s largest distance learning institution. Students complete their coursework from the comfort of their homes. They also complete their examinations from a location of their choice on the myExams platform.
Students are advised that maintenance on the myExams and myModules platform will be taking place during the examination period.
Unisa said, “Maintenance activities are performed daily on the myExams platform between 04:00 am, and 05:00, and routine maintenance takes place between 03:00 am and 05:00 am on the myModules.”
During the above mentioned periods, both students and lecturers will not be able to access or use these systems
“Unisa strives to ensure that the myExams system is always available for seamless operations. However, ongoing and routine maintenance must be performed to keep the system performing optimally,” explained the university.
Unisa uses an online platform called myModules which allows students to access their modules as well as Unisa-related groups and communities. The university explains the system is built on open-source software and is used as a collaborative teaching and learning environment.
