Posted by Dave Laurie on 03 April 2019 03:40 PM

Attention eClass Users,

Please be aware that in June 2019, we will be performing a major version upgrade to eClass. This upgrade will introduce a variety of bug fixes and feature improvements across the site.

The upgrade will require a full system outage, which has been scheduled for Saturday, June 22nd 2019 from 12:00AM until Sunday June 23rd at 11:59PM (48 hours).

The main system features that will change in the new version of eClass are listed below:

Highlights

Quiz Improvements

Assignment Improvements

Miscellaneous Changes

Please also note that the following features have been deprecated and will no longer be available in the new version of eClass:

  • Kaltura Media - Kaltura media plugins have been removed from eClass and it will no longer be possible to add new Kaltura content via the HTML editor. Links to existing Kaltura media will still function in the system.
  • iClicker Regristration Activity - this plugin is no longer available as iClickers are no longer supported.
  • Respondus Lockdown Browser Block - this plugin is no longer available as RLDB is no longer supported.

This list of features may be subject to change before the upgrade takes place. We will be providing training and support materials to prepare users for major changes as the upgrade date draws closer.

If you have any questions about this upgrade, please contact us at eclass@ualberta.ca. Also, if you are interested in testing the latest features coming to eClass and have not yet signed up to be involved in User Acceptance Testing (UAT), please contact us for more information.

Regards,
IST eClass Support
