As of June 9, 2017, SRJC will be using a single course management system - Canvas. The other two systems that have been in place until now, CATE and Moodle, will no longer be available for instructional use. Below you will find details about how faculty can continue to retrieve files and other content from those systems.
June 9, 2017 - June 22, 2017
CATE and Moodle were backed up and moved to messina.santarosa.edu (Messina).
June 26, 2017 - June 2020
- Faculty will have access to Messina with the same login credentials they currently use, and can continue to copy files and other content from there.
- All functionalities not related to information retrieval will be disabled in CATE. It will not be possible to create new sections, pages, files, quizzes, etc.
- Messina will be directly available from on-campus networks. Faculty will need to access it from a campus computer, or from off-campus via the Citrix portal.
- Students will not have access to Messina, so it will not be possible to teach courses from that server, and you will not be able to link to files stored there. Faculty will first need to move course content into Canvas or elsewhere to give students access to it.
- Information about moving content from Moodle to Canvas.
- Information about moving content from CATE to Canvas.
CATE and Moodle will be shut down entirely. The 3-year time period satisfies the requirement to archive student records for 3 years. After that time, faculty will no longer have access to that information unless they have copied it elsewhere.
