IT Update August, 2012
Emergency System Maintenance
Emergency maintenance of major campus IT systems is planned to begin at 8:00 pm tomorrow evening, Friday August 24th and end by 2 am on Saturday, August 25th. This emergency maintenance is required to correct a potential problem with our campus file systems and to minimize the risk of problems occurring during the fall semester. We chose the timing for this mandatory maintenance in order to minimize disruption for teaching and learning by completing it between summer and fall sessions, and to be done late on a Friday when usage is very low.
Affected Systems: This shutdown will affect SacCT and MySacState. Systems that should not be affected by this outage are Campus email, the Student Center, the Faculty Center, telephone and network activity. Faculty and students can access available systems by clicking on the MySacState link on the campus home page, which will be redirected to an alternate site.
For Assistance: If you have any questions or concerns about this emergency maintenance, please contact the Service Desk at 916-278-7337or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you experience problems over the weekend, please call 916-278-7622.

We’re excited to announce that twelve additional university classrooms were upgraded over the semester break to include Intermediate Smart Technology. You can find a list that includes a description and pictures of these newly improved classrooms here. In addition, the campus is planning further classroom improvements over the coming summer that will include 1) As many as twenty additional Intermediate Smart Classrooms; 2) a pilot project to demonstrate collaborative technology and seating in a seminar room; 3) Addition of student self-study areas; and 4) the creation of a badly needed larger Advanced Smart Classroom.
Keep in mind that IRT’s Classroom Services group provides long-term and just-in-time support to all faculty in campus-wide classrooms and university computer labs. To reach Classroom Services, just call 916.278.7337, and choose Option 1. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
