Catalyst maintenance request procedure
For faculty ONLY


REQUEST COURSE ACTIVATION EVERY QUARTER YOU NEED CATALYST LIVE COURSE(S)

If you want to use Catalyst for your live course for the upcoming quarter, you have to fill out the request form. Otherwise you will not have a live course to use. Remember, whatever you have on the development server or used on the live server in the past DO NOT automatically transfer over to the new quarter.

Here's how you do it:

  1. Go to Catalyst Course Maintenance site https://catalystdev.deanza.edu/maint/
    You will log in using your development server username and password.
  2. Verify that your contact information is correct in the “Update Profile” tab.
  3. You will need to request “Activation” of each course you will be teaching using Catalyst for the quarter.
a. Click on the “Activation” tab.
b. Select "Request Activation for Upcoming Quarter"
c. Complete the form. Courses you are going to teach will show up in the box on the top left. Select one course, then in the below box, select the source course or shell to create the new course from. Click to agree to the terms and submit the request.

WHEN CAN I EDIT/UPDATE MY COURSE, and WHERE?

  1. We email you to let you know when the request is due. On that due date, your source content from either your live class or dev server master shell will be captured and copied to make new courses for next quarter. That means changes to the source after that will not be captured.
  2. When you receive an email indicating your course is ready on the live server, you may start making changes there. If you do not receive an email 2 weeks before quarter start date , contact us.
  3. Once your new course is activated, it is your responsibility to review your course as soon as you are notified that it is ready.
