WebCT Access Hours *Not* Restricted

Good afternoon everyone.

Earlier today, it was brought to our attention that some of you are experiencing the following error when trying to log into WebCT at very late or very early hours of the day:

* WebCT

The Student Information System is now closed. Hours of operation:
Sunday 1:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Monday 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Tuesday 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Wednesday 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Friday 8:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Saturday 9:00 a.m. – 11:59 p.m.

Understandably, this is a big problem for many, if not, most of you, since usage is very high at the very hours this says WebCT is not available. So, we immediately checked with our WebCT Administrators and found out the following:

The direct link to WebCT (http://webct6.utdallas.edu) will always work, even if the link to WebCT is not showing in Galaxy and if it is outside normal SIS operating hours.

The information presented in Galaxy should be updated soon; however, until that time, we recommend that you access WebCT by using the direct WebCT url above.
