Resolved: Issue with Test and Quizzes tool in Sakai

Resolved:  We believe that the problem some students have encountered while attempting to submit quizzes in Sakai’s Test & Quizzes tool have been resolved. If you experience continued problems with this feature in Sakai, please contact hmccull@allegheny.edu or  mhurley@allegheny.edu.

Original Post: Instructional technologists are getting numerous reports of students being unable to submit completed quizzes through Sakai’s Test & Quizzes tool.

The problem is looking more wide-spread than we originally thought.  The problem is being investigated.  As additional information is learned, this post will be updated.

Should you have additional questions, please contact (hmccull@allegheny.edu) or mhurley@allegheny.edu.

Problems accessing files in ShareStream

ShareStream was updated over the weekend and since that time some users have had trouble accessing audio and video files stored on the system. Access to those files can be restored by clearing your web-browser’s cache. Here is a tutorial that explains how to clear the cache on the most common web-browsers:

ShareStream update has been rescheduled.

There was a slight problem with the update to ShareStream that was scheduled for Thursday  so it had to be delayed until Saturday morning. ShareStream is now scheduled to be updated between 2:00-6:00am on Saturday, September 7. The ShareStream service will be unavailable during this time, however everything else in Sakai will continue to work as normal.
