Welcome to Distance Education at SRJC
The Distance Education office (formerly known as the CATE office) at Santa Rosa Junior College hosts SRJC's online classes as well as Web-based materials created for face-to-face classes by SRJC faculty. The Distance Ed office also assists faculty with creating and maintaining online classes and Web-based instructional materials, and DE provides information and resources for SRJC faculty and students who participate in Web-based teaching and learning.
Instructors can use the Moodle system and/or the CATE system for hosting their online classrooms. Students should be prepared to utilize both systems.
In all cases, we're sure you'll agree that Web-based classes are a great way to enhance your educational experience at SRJC!

The time between 5:00 PM and 8:00 PM Pacific Time on Friday is reserved for system maintenance on the Distance Education server. CATE, Moodle, and all other services
on the DE server can be completely unavailable during maintenance. Please plan your work so as to avoid any possible disruption during this period.

On 2 January 2014, Distance Education will undertake the process of upgrading to new server hardware and software. The process will likely consume all day on 2 January, and might possibly extend through part of the day on 3 January.
During that period, all classes, sites, and services hosted on the Distance Ed server (online.santarosa.edu) will be completely inaccessible and out of action.
That means no CATE, no Moodle, no CATE-based departmental websites, no online orientation enrollments, no import of grades from CATE gradebooks into the faculty portal, no import of grades from Moodle gradebooks into the faculty portal, etc. All this is equally true for faculty, students, and everyone else. For all intents and purposes, classes, sites, and services hosted on the Distance Ed server simply will not exist while we perform this upgrade.
Please plan accordingly.

Looking for your class website for the new semester? You can find links to all SRJC online classrooms via our Class Homepages link. However, keep in mind that most instructors don't open their sites until the class actually begins, or just a day or two beforehand. If you still have difficulty finding your class pages, you can contact the instructor.
|SERVER DOWN TIME
At 3:05 am every morning the server will be unavailable for approximately fifteen minutes during our daily back-up procedures.
In addition, the hours between 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm on
Friday evenings are always
reserved for system maintenance. Most of the time this maintenance will not
affect use of the system by students and instructors, but occasionally there
will be a temporary outage during that period.
These interruptions apply to everything hosted on the server, including the
CATE and Moodle courseware management systems and all classes in both those
Please plan your online schedule accordingly.
