Why did this transition occur?
For many years, not all Webster and Eden faculty had access to learning management systems, and Docutek ERes provided a place for faculty to post materials and links online. Now that both schools have learning management systems, it makes sense to leverage the capabilities of these systems to provide a one-stop-shopping experience for students and faculty.
Why not continue to make Docutek ERes available for those faculty who prefer it?
There are significant software and hardware costs associated with maintaining the Docutek ERes system. In addition, the vendor has not updated the Docutek ERes software since 2009 and does not currently have any plans to put out a new release. For this reason it is not feasible to make it available indefinitely.
Will the library still help with digitizing my materials and making them available online?
Yes! For assistance contact Greg Kettinger at firstname.lastname@example.org or 314-246-7813.
Once you set up my Docutek ERes account and course, I always preferred to manage my own course page and materials. Is that still going to be an option?
Of course. You will be able to manage your course page in WorldClassRoom or CAMS, and this will include adding materials.
Will I still be able to transfer my materials from one term to the next?
Yes. Just contact Greg Kettinger at email@example.com or 314-246-7813 for assistance.
I relied on the DocuFax feature. Do WorldClassRoom and CAMS have a similar feature?
WorldClassRoom and CAMS do not have a fax function. However, you may fax your materials to 314-968-7113 or scan and email documents to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will help you post them.
Where can I get more information about using WorldClassRoom?
