K-State Online Classic to be retired Jan. 1, 2017

KSOL InfoAfter a year of being available for use in a read-only version,
K-State Online Classic will be formally retired by Information Technology Services on Jan. 1, 2017.

Kansas State University relied on Classic for more than 15 years as the learning management system for K-State Online. K-State Online Classic was available throughout 2016 in a read-only version, which allowed instructors to download existing files, export past quizzes, rosters, and grade books. For the past two years, instructors have been migrating content to K-State Online Canvas, with rosters and final grades residing permanently as records in the KSIS student information system.

As of Jan. 1, 2017, instructors will no longer have direct access to K-State Online Classic. Instructors who need access to their old content in Classic will need to submit a request form.

On July 1, 2017, all information residing in K-State Online Classic will be archived and be permanently offline. At that time, if instructors need access to the old data, a request form will need to be submitted and it may take several weeks to retrieve the information.

If you have questions regarding the K-State Online Classic retirement, contact the IT Help Desk, phone 785-532-7722 (toll-free 800-865-6143) or email helpdesk@k-state.edu.
