Retirement Deadline: EEE Quiz

The message below was sent on 7/9 to all instructors and teaching assistants who have used Quiz.

If you did not receive this message and would like to receive future communication regarding the retirement of Quiz, you can join the Quiz users mailing list. This is an announcement-only list; you will only receive messages from EEE staff, and we will use it sparingly.


Hello,

At the end of Fall 2018, it will no longer be possible to create or assign new EEE Legacy quizzes.

Instructors and TAs will be able to access quiz content and results through the end of Winter 2020. In order to prepare, instructors and TAs should retrieve copies of past quiz content and results, then administer future quizzes in Canvas.

You can export EEE Legacy Quiz content in a format ready to import into Canvas, which offers a robust quiz and survey tool:

For help with Canvas, email eee-support@uci.edu or call the OIT Help Desk at (949) 824-2222.

To reiterate: Fall 2018 will be the last term in which it will be possible to create and assign new content through EEE Legacy Quiz. You should now begin to save copies of past quiz contents or results that you may need later.

Retirement Deadline: EEE EasyWebsite

The message below was sent on 7/9 to all instructors and teaching assistants who have used EasyWebsite.

If you did not receive this message and would like to receive future communication regarding the retirement of EasyWebsite, you can join the EasyWebsite users mailing list. This is an renouncement-only list; you will only receive messages from EEE staff, and we will use it sparingly.


Hello,

At the end of Fall 2018, it will no longer be possible to create new EasyWebsites, nor will students or the general public be able to access any EasyWebsites.

Instructors and TAs will be able to access their content via the EasyWebsites tool through the end of Winter 2020, when EasyWebsites will become totally inaccessible. In order to prepare, instructors and TAs should download copies of their content, then transition to next-generation systems (e.g., Canvas or UCI Sites).

There are two primary options for class website content going forward:

  • Create a Canvas course space where you can distribute files, media, and more:

    Get started by creating a Canvas course space via EEE+ GrandCentral: https://grandcentral.eee.uci.edu

    To help you navigate this process, we have created a quick start guide to get up and running in Canvas: https://eee.uci.edu/clickr/?t=1223&f=185

    For additional Canvas help, contact eee-support@uci.edu or the OIT Help Desk at (949) 824-2222

  • Use Sites@UCI for a more flexible website or blog:

    For help with Sites@UCI, visit http://sites.uci.edu/docs/ or contact the OIT Help Desk at either (949) 824-2222 or oit@uci.edu

To reiterate: Fall 2018 will be the last term in which it will be possible to create new EasyWebsites. You should download any content or files that you may need later and prepare to transition to Canvas or Sites@UCI.
