On August 27, 2017 the San Diego Community College District will be launching a new website. The site will improve the user experience, allow departments to update their own sections, and will be mobile-friendly. This a wonderful opportunity to bring a more effective website to our faculty, staff, students, and the community. With this update there will be a few changes. Here are some questions and answers to help you better understand how the new site may affect you.
Is the website compatible with all browsers?
We have made every attempt to ensure that the website functions in all of the most common browsers. For the best viewing experience we recommend updating your current browser to the latest version.
Will my bookmarked pages on the old site still work?
Most URLs on the website have changed as we have migrated to a new system. We have created redirects for our most frequently-visited pages. Clicking on old bookmarks should take you to the new page in most instances, but we encourage you to update your bookmarks to links on the new site after August 27.
Did anything stay the same?
Portals that require login information have not changed. Portals such as Reg-e, Schedule of Classes, College Faculty Web Services, Continuing Education Faculty Web Services, and PeopleSoft remain the same.
Will the website work on a phone or tablet?
The new website is mobile-friendly and will have a different appearance on mobile devices than on desktop. To find your way around our site on mobile, the menu can be found by selecting the three horizontal lines at the top-right corner of the page.
Will there be training on the new website?
The district communications office is coordinating with vice chancellors at the district office to offer training to selected members of each department so they can update their own sections of the website. These two training sessions will take place in September. Training will be conducted by the company Taylor & Pond that redesigned the website, with the support of the District’s Communications and Public Relations office and Information Technology.
What if I have a complaint or suggestion about the website?
