The following are known issues:
- there seems to be an intermittent problem with Windows 10 when trying to map a network drive to a WebLearn site using WebDAV – therefore, if you are using Windows 10 we recommend you use a (free) WebDAV client such as Cyberduck or WinSCP
- some of the less well-used tools (for example, Tests and the Researcher Training Tool) are not yet optimised for display on a mobile phones - this will be addressed in due course
