Select Catalyst tools no longer available for participants starting June 15

The following email was sent to all Catalyst Web Tools Owners and Collaborators.

As communicated last September, six Catalyst Web Tools are now on a timeline to be retired, with the process ending August 2018.

This message is a reminder that on June 15, 2018, access to the following Catalyst tools will be disabled for participants:

  • Collect It
  • CommonView
  • GoPost
  • QuickPoll
  • UMail
  • WebQ Quiz

WebQ Survey and Gradebook WILL NOT BE RETIRED.

Tool owners and collaborators will continue to have access to these tools until August 24, 2018, and will have up to that date to archive or migrate content from the tools being retired. After August 24, access for tool owners and collaborators will be disabled. As this process moves forward, UW-IT will send additional reminders to Catalyst tool owners and collaborators.

UW-IT is providing support for users needing to move to other alternatives. If you have been using Catalyst Tools for teaching, the Canvas learning management system is the centrally supported alternative. Learning Technologies provides workshops to help people who are moving teaching and learning content from Catalyst to Canvas.
