K-State Online Classic moves offline Dec. 15

KSOL Info

After K-State Online Classic was retired on Jan. 1, instructors could submit a request form to retrieve their course content within a few days.  That will change on Dec. 15, when all data in K-State Online Classic is permanently moved offline. Instead of a few days, it may take several weeks to retrieve any data.

Instructors, now is the time to archive any Classic content you want to keep.  Submit a request form now if you need to access and archive your old data.

Class rosters and final grades do not need to be archived from Classic because they reside permanently as records in the KSIS student information system.

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.
